The Importance of Annual Wellness Exams
Just like many of our cat patients, birds and exotic pets are known to be masters of hiding illness, which makes it difficult to detect health problems in these species. That’s why preventive care in the form of annual wellness exams is so critical. Annual wellness exams are an important way to ensure the overall health and longevity of your bird, reptile, amphibian, or fish. These visits allow us to catch illnesses early so we can treat them before they become serious. They also allow us to create a baseline health record for future visits.
Your pet’s wellness visit is also a great opportunity to let us know about any questions or concerns you have regarding your pet’s health or behavior, whether they’re related to diet, at-home care, or something else. In addition to making sure that your pet is healthy, we want you to have peace of mind about caring for him at home, especially if you’re a first-time exotic pet owner. If your new pet is an avian or exotic species, please check out the following handouts for more information:
- Bearded dragons
