Exotic patients can be difficult and complex to examine, diagnose and treat due to a number of factors. While we are not specialists in exotic medicine we do have a team of vets and nurses with a keen interest in theses species, many of whom hold, or are working towards, further qualifications in the field.

It is important that the person bringing your pet to the consultation knows about their husbandry and can answer questions on it. A sample, or picture, of food for small mammals, and especially birds, can be useful to analyse diet.
If your pet is suffering from regurgitation or diarrhoea a faecal sample is often the first step in investigation and bringing one to your consultation is likely to be helpful. This is also true of anorexic (not eating) or generally unwell patients.
