Exotic Animal Care

Dr. Shannon Long and Dr. Abby Curiel love exotic pets. They find them fascinating animals and feel they can enrich our lives and broaden our understanding of the animal kingdom and the world we live in. To properly care for exotic animals we need a thorough understanding of natural behavior, environment, and diet. Many exotic pets are prey animals and they are experts at masking their feelings and hiding illnesses, so as not to become a target for a predator. With regular veterinary examinations we can establish baseline weights, identify body condition, discuss diet, housing and environmental enrichment. All are important in providing responsible care of our exotic companions.
