Here at Bromhof Vet we are passionate about exotic pets and would love to meet all your parrots, snakes, rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, hedgehogs, tenrecs, rats, bearded dragons, tortoises and more.
Each of these little animals have their own set of individual needs and cannot be treated as “a small dog or cat”.
Did you know that larger parrots like macaws or cockatoos can have an average lifespan of between 65-85 years? During this time, it is important to know that a pet bird needs a specifically formulated diet to keep him/her as healthy as possible.
Incorrect feeding of different species often causes debilitating diseases which could have been prevented by a proper balanced diet.
To ensure the appropriate care of your special pet it is of utmost importance to ensure that your veterinarian has experience and a keen interest in the treatment of exotics.
Many exotic pet owners also don’t know that they require regular deworming and ecto-parasite control.
We encourage clients to bring their exotic animals for a general health check or for a consultation if there are any health concerns. You are also most welcome to visit the clinic for advice regarding correct diet and husbandry for your exotic pet.
Together we can keep our little ones healthy and assist you with all these special needs your exotic pet might have.
