Exotic Pets & Pocket Pets
While most veterinary clinics do not provide services for exotic pets, Barry Veterinary Hospital is equipped to examine them and welcomes them with open arms.
The term ‘exotic pet’ includes a wide range of animals, such as:
Small mammals (ferrets, hedgehogs, sugar gliders, rabbits, guinea pigs, other rodents)
Birds (parrots, finches, waterfowl, raptors used for falconry, etc.)
Reptiles (snakes, lizards, turtles, tortoises)
Amphibians (frogs, salamanders, newts)
Invertebrates (tarantulas, scorpions, hermit crabs, etc.)
Fish (freshwater, saltwater, corals, etc.)
We offer wellness exams, behavioral and dietary consultations, diagnostic testing, and tips on proper husbandry and handling. We recommend you bring your pet in every 6-12 months for preventative care and examination.
For our flying friends, we offer additional services, such as nail, beak & wing trimming.
For new bird owners, we recommend having a full examination done before taking your new pet home. Birds who have had recent contact with other birds in a pet store are far more likely to be infected with contagious diseases, parasites or bacteria.
Other veterinary services offered for exotic pets include:
Parasite Screening / Fecal Exam
Oral / Dental Exam
Nail, Beak, and Wing Trims
