Exotic pets such as birds, reptiles, and small mammals can be wonderful companions.
Unlike more traditional pets, each species has very specific environmental and dietary requirements that are necessary to keep them healthy. Research on your new family member is recommended before bringing an exotic animal into your home. Just like dogs and cats, exotic pets should be seen by a veterinarian annually to insure they remain healthy. Most health issues in birds, reptiles, and small mammals can be directly related to improper diet and environment are most easily treated when detected early. With birds and reptiles their symptoms are so subtle it is important that at the earliest stage of the disease a doctor sees them.
