Exotic Veterinarian in Seneca, SC

Trust Seneca Animal Hospital as your local exotic veterinarian!

Exotic veterinarian services are becoming more necessary as growing numbers of people are now becoming owners of exotic or non-traditional pets. While most people think of vets as working primarily with dogs and cats or livestock, exotic veterinarians have specialized in treating additional types of pets like birds, reptiles, amphibians and pocket pets.

Exotic Veterinarian Services Provided

Exotic pets have very different needs than those of dogs and cats. The types of food that exotics eat, the habitat or cage that they live in, and the daily care they need are different but just as important. We love working with exotic pet owners and their animals! Some of our exotic veterinarian services included with annual wellness checks are habitat and nutritional counseling. We want your exotic pet to live as happy and healthy a life as possible.

Avian pets can develop behavioral issues that we can help with, such as plucking and anxiety. They are also prone to different types of internal parasites that we can monitor for and treat, as well as external mites and lice that can be species-specific.

Annual wellness checks are recommended for pocket pets, and we can provide additional services like tooth and nail trimming, spay and neuter procedures, and screening for species-specific illnesses and diseases.

Reptiles have very specific care needs as well, and we offer a full range of services for them. With all types of exotic pets, we are able to provide minor surgery of various types, issue vaccinations when needed, and perform emergency medical care.

Avian Vet Care

Cockatiels, parrots, parakeets, lovebirds—every type of bird can come along with its own nuances when it comes to nutritional needs, housing, and healthcare. make sure your feathered friend gets a visit to the exotic veterinarian annually for an overall wellness check, but birds may also need:

  • Help for behavioral issues like anxiety and plucking
  • Fecal tests to monitor for parasites
  • Treatment for species-related lice or mites

Pocket Pet Vet Care

Pocket pets include rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, rats, ferrets, and other small mammals are a joy to have around, but these pets can need periodic vet attention to stay healthy. Your pocket pet should get an annual checkup, but may also need to see the exotic veterinarian for things like:

  • Spaying or neutering
  • Screening for illnesses and diseases
  • Assistance with grooming, such as nail or tooth trimming

Pocket pets can be especially prone to injuries, and even seemingly slight illnesses can have serious consequences. Therefore, it is best to seek vet care immediately if you suspect something is wrong.

Reptile Vet Care
