So what exactly is an exotic pet? Good question. First, the word “pet” must be emphasized. In our opinion, it’s not a pet unless it can be interacted with and cared for in a relationship that is MUTUALLY beneficial. Beyond that, if it’s not a dog or a cat, it’s exotic.
The most common exotic pets we see, (just scratching the surface), are parrots, macaws, cockatoos, finches, canaries, ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs, rats, hamsters, sugar gliders, snakes, turtles, and lizards. We also regularly tend to scorpions, tarantulas, bats, bears, tigers, ligers, otters, vipers, cobras, and other odd creatures.
Here at Avian & Exotic, we’ll see anything that meets the criteria of being “pet” material that we feel COMPETENT handling.
Please note: we won’t take care of any animal that we don’t feel we have adequate knowledge of, such as Koi. And, just in case you have something we don’t feel comfortable with, we always know exactly who to refer you to.
