FAQ's for Exotic Vet Care
At Sango Veterinary Hospital, we provide routine pet wellness and preventive care services for your exotic pet. Exotic pets can also be seen for medical or behavioral concerns.
- Wellness & Preventive Care
Much like cats and dogs, exotic pets benefit from regular veterinary care to help live a long, happy, and healthy life. Our vets are trained in the unique care and husbandry needs and veterinary treatment of these species.
During the initial wellness visit, our vet will thoroughly review your pet’s housing, nutrition, and care. A complete and thorough physical exam will be performed. Health screening tests and vaccines will be discussed and recommended when indicated. Our vet will discuss any husbandry, health, or behavior concerns with you and answer any questions you might have. Recommendations will be tailored to the needs of your pet and their family.
- What can I expect at an exotic appointment?
When you bring your exotic mammal in for a routine exam, we will assess the overall health of your pet. We will perform a thorough physical examination, recommend the appropriate preventive care, and answer any questions you may have about your pet to help ensure their health and longevity.
- Sick Pet Appointments & Daytime Emergencies
Other exotic pets with health or behavior concerns can be seen by our vet. If possible, please call (931) 368-8050 in advance to determine the availability of our veterinarian. While we do accept walk-in and work-in emergencies for exotic pets, there may be an additional fee if the double booking of appointments occurs.
- What is an exotic mammal?
Exotic mammals are small animals including rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, hedgehogs, chinchillas, rats, mice, hamsters, and gerbils. Many exotic pets are prey species in the wild and consequently can be very good at hiding the signs of illness until it is quite advanced, which is why preventive veterinary care is so important.
- What are reptiles?
Reptiles are air-breathing vertebrates. Covered in special skin made of bony plates, hard scales, or a combination of both, they regularly shed an outer layer of skin. These can include iguanas, tortoises, lizards, turtles, snakes, and more.
To give your pet reptile the best chance at a healthy life, habitat & diet must be meticulously maintained. Preventive care is critical.
