FAQ's for Care of Exotic Pets
At Cinder Rock Veterinary Clinic, we provide routine wellness and preventive care services for your bird or other exotic pet. Exotic pets can also be seen by our vets for medical or behavioral concerns.
- Wellness & Preventive Care
Much like cats and dogs, other exotic pets benefit from regular veterinary care to help live a long, happy, and healthy life. Our vets are trained in the unique care and husbandry needs and veterinary treatment of these species.
During the initial wellness visit, our vet will thoroughly review your pet’s housing, nutrition, and care. A complete and thorough physical exam will be performed. Health screening tests and vaccines will be discussed and recommended when indicated. Our vet will discuss any husbandry, health, or behavior concerns with you and answer any questions you might have. Recommendations will be tailored to the needs of your pet and their family.
- What can I expect at an exotic appointment?
When you bring your exotic mammal in for a routine exam, we will assess the overall health of your pet. We will perform a thorough physical examination, recommend the appropriate preventive care, and answer any questions you may have about your pet to help ensure their health and longevity.
- Sick Pet Appointments & Daytime Emergencies
Small mammals with health or behavior concerns can be seen by our vet. If possible, please call (541) 923-1638 in advance to determine the availability of our veterinarian. While we do accept walk-in and work-in emergencies for exotic pets, there may be an additional fee if double booking of appointments occurs.
If your pet's emergency exceeds our capabilities, we will refer you to a specialized exotic animal hospital in Redmond.
- What is an exotic mammal?
Exotic mammals are small animals including rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, hedgehogs, chinchillas, rats, mice, hamsters and gerbils. Many exotic pets are prey species in the wild and consequently can be very good at hiding the signs of illness until it is quite advanced, which is why preventive veterinary care is so important.
