Does your pet family include a guinea pig, an iguana, or a parakeet? If you’re looking for an exotic vet in the Bolingbrook, IL area, our team would love to welcome you and your pet. Exotic pets, which include reptiles, birds, rabbits, ferrets, and small mammals (pocket pets), have various needs just like dogs and cats, and often require adjustments to their climate to keep them healthy and comfortable. We can answer any questions you have about your pet’s care, including what to feed them and how to manage their habitat, and perform a thorough assessment of their health.
The Importance of Routine Exams for Exotic Pets
Dogs and cats are not the only pets that can hide their illnesses well. Exotic pets are also capable of concealing signs of pain and sickness, and may not show symptoms until their condition has grown much worse. Bringing your pet in to see us on a yearly basis can prevent this from happening. With a thorough physical examination and blood work, our team can detect small health changes and diagnose any problems taking place. Furthermore, with a diagnosis, we can suggest treatment options that will best suit your pet’s needs and circumstances.
