Exotic Pets & Avian in Sherman, TX
Small mammals and reptiles can become ill and rapidly decline in less than 24 hours. Therefore, if your pet seems sick, it should receive prompt medical attention. When you first adopt your exotic pet, our veterinarian should perform a thorough exam to assess its health and discuss husbandry requirements. As well, annual physical exams are as crucial in non-traditional pets as they are in dogs and cats.
Board-certified specialists, such as oncologists, ophthalmologists, and neurologists, have extensive experience and training in a particular area of veterinary medicine or surgery. Specialty clinics and university-affiliated referral centers have specialized equipment to perform procedures that general veterinary practitioners do not routinely perform.
We make referral decisions because we want to ensure that our patients receive the highest standard of care and the best possible outcome. Be assured that when we refer a patient to another hospital, we continue to stay involved with their care, consulting with the treating specialist, and often providing any needed follow-up care and rehabilitation.
