Wellness for Exotic Pets

Wellness exams are the most important part of your exotic pet’s health care. We recommend annual exams that allow us to review your pet’s health often and catch any early signs of disease. Typically, a wellness exam for an exotic pet will consist of:

  • A physical exam
  • Assessing their lifestyle and home environment
  • Nutritional needs
  • Diagnostic testing if needed
  • Addressing any issues with behavior and socialization


Annual exams not only help prevent illness, they also allow our vets to get to know you and your pet better, so they can provide individualized care!

An important part of exotic pet care is their habitat, nutrition, and socialization, which is why we emphasize these points during an annual check-up. Exotic pets, particularly reptiles and amphibians, fare better in environments that closely match their home habitat. For instance, all reptiles need an appropriate amount of UVB lighting and a temperature gradient within their enclosure. Without enough UVB exposure, your lizard or snake can suffer severe vitamin and nutrient deficiencies.
