Avian/Exotic Pet Care in Greenland
Here at Greenland Veterinary Hospital, we gladly welcome birds, amphibians, fish, and reptiles to our practice, in addition to various mammal species. Our veterinarians are specially trained and skilled at meeting the unique needs of exotic pets, with consideration to their dietary needs, anatomy, health risks, and other factors. Just as with any other species, prevention is the best medicine, which is why we place a strong emphasis on preventive care with our avian and exotic pet services in Greenland.
The Importance of Annual Wellness Exams
Many birds and exotic animal species instinctually hide their illnesses as a defense mechanism. This can make it difficult to determine if your pet has a health problem or not, which is why annual wellness visits are so important. During these visits, we’ll perform a comprehensive exam, which can help ensure your pet’s overall health and longevity because it allows us to catch and treat illnesses early. We can also create a baseline health record that can be used for future visits so we can determine if there are any changes.
Whether you’re a first-time bird or exotic pet owner, or you’re experienced, we know you may have questions about caring for your pet. We gladly welcome these questions during the wellness visit, whether they’re related to diet and nutrition, training, tanks/cages, etc. The following handouts can also better equip you to care for your bird, frog, reptile, or fish from home:
