Regular wellness exams are equally as important for exotic pets as they are for dogs and cats. Dr. Shrader & Dr. McWilliams recommend that exotic pet parents schedule an annual or semi-annual wellness visit for preventative reasons.
It is common for an exotic pet to hid signs of symptoms of disease and illness that may be unrecognizable to their owners. Scheduling a routine wellness exam serves as a powerful preventative for your exotic pet.
Once at the exam, you may ask Dr. Shrader or Dr. McWilliams questions about behavioral concerns, specific environment requirements, nutrition plans, and parasite prevention. We also kindly ask that you allow Dr. Shrader or Dr. McWilliams to handle the animal during the exam and wait to hold your pet until the exam is over.
Prior to coming in for your exotic pet’s wellness exam at Prairie Lane Veterinary Hospital, we ask that you bring a fecal sample along with any other helpful medical records relating to your pet.
