No different than your cat or dog, your exotic pet requires routine preventative care too! Is this your first exotic pet? Or maybe you’ve had this pet for a while, but could use some reliable advice. Dr. Hilary Rondot would love to meet with you to discuss some or all of the following things:
How and where your exotic pet lives really matters! We can help you choose the correct cage or enclosure for your pet, or help you make adjustments to your existing set up to make your exotic pet more comfortable.
Diet and Nutrition
Choosing the correct diet and supplements for your exotic pet can be daunting. With so many options available, let Dr. Hilary help guide you in the right direction.
The Sex of your pet
Knowing the correct sex of your pet can help you understand some of his or her behaviours or actions. It may give you an indication if there is a specific gender related health issue.
Proper nutrition, housing, environmental enrichment, and routine health care can help prevent disease in your pet and encourage a long and healthy life for your exotic. We can help you implement preventative measure that will promote wellness in your pet.
Why does your rabbit thump her foot at you? And why is she eating her droppings?! Is it normal for your parrot to scream at you? What about your ferret dunking his whole head in his water bowl? Understanding what is normal behaviour for your exotic pet can help you identify if they are healthy or ill.
Do you know how to tell if your exotic pet is ill? Often, exotic pets will look ‘normal’ even when they aren’t well. Small changes in behaviour and routine are often your first indications that something could be wrong. Let us coach you in what to watch for in your species of pet.
