A wide range of diagnostic services are available to enable us to help your pet, including digital radiography, in-house laboratory testing, endoscopy, laparoscopy, ultrasonography, and computed tomography (CT scans).
We address many of the unique problems encountered in exotic species, including behavior issues, and nutritional counseling.
If needed, we offer a full complement of surgical procedures to benefit your pet. Trauma repair, orthopedic procedures, reproductive emergencies, and diagnostic surgical procedures are but a few of our standard surgical offerings. Traditional surgery, magnified microsurgery, laser enhanced procedures, along with endoscopic and laparoscopic procedures utilize the most modern equipment to minimize the surgical time, trauma and risk to your pet. No pet is too small, too large or too exotic to receive optimal surgical care. Our decades worth of exotic animal anesthesia and pain control experience will help your pet have the care it deserves in its time of need.
Constant and Specialized Care
If hospitalization is required, patients are monitored by experienced veterinarians and experienced registered veterinary technicians. Required treatments and nutrition can be safely administered to give your pet the best support possible. Patients are maintained in a separate, specially equipped exotics ward to minimize stress and provide climate-controlled care.
