Exotic Pet Care
Dogs and cats make up the majority of our patients here in Plano, but we are also equipped to offer exotic pet care to a wide variety of animals. Dr. Carver has a lengthy history of providing essential preventive and surgical services to various species, including:
- Small mammals/pocket pets (mice, hamsters, guinea pigs)
If you have an uncommon animal companion that needs medical care, call Humane Animal Medical & Surgical Hospital to see how we can best accommodate their needs.
Do you need care for your exotic pet? Reach out to our team to learn more and request an appointment.
What We Can Do
Every pet should have at least basic preventive care on a yearly basis. This includes a full physical exam, diagnostics, and a detailed discussion about their health, from past to present. No matter how small or unconventional, your pet depends on you for all of their needs and comforts.
In addition to regular checkups, other important areas of care we need to focus on include:
- Mental and physical stimulation
- Handling and socialization
- Size, climate, and cleanliness of habitat
- How to detect signs of illness
Many animal species tend to hide pain and illness, making routine checkups imperative to their health. Please notify our team of any physical and/or behavioral changes you observe in your exotic pet.
When needed, our team can also provide dental care, orthopedic surgery, and emergency medical care to exotic pets. If you are able, please call our hospital ahead of time at (972) 578-2553 to find out how we can help. In some cases, we may need to refer exotic pet patients to a specialist if they have a complex issue.
