If you own an exotic pet in Tulsa such as birds, reptiles, ferrets, rabbits, hedgehogs and other pocket pets, it is good to know where to go when they become sick or injured. Establishing a good working relationship with a Tulsa veterinarian can be a challenge for any pet owner, but is a special challenge for the exotic pet owner. The exotic pet owner must find a vet who is willing to see their pet, knows something about their pet, and has the facilities, equipment and materials to treat their pet. Not all vets see exotics, and not all the ones who say they do have the know how.

It is important that you bring your pet in for annual exams. It is very easy to not recognize symptoms of illness in your exotic pet when your pet exhibits them. Often, exotic pets don’t get to the veterinarian in time and sometimes that can result in a very sad ending. We can give your pet a full exam, monitor your animal’s weight, detect slight onset of disease, give you nutritional, behavioral, and husbandry education, and develop a relationship with you and your exotic pet that may one day save its life.
Google Review from a Exotic Pet Owner
“I have a rare breed of Monitor Lizard that ate a foreign object. I drove 100 miles to take her to them. The experience of the vets with exotic animals paired with the state of the art tools and old school tricks of the trade got my Lizard back on track in no time. Worth the drive. And the cost wasn’t bad either. Highly Reccomend” RD
