At Summit Animal Hospital in Eldersburg, we love pets of all shapes, sizes, and species. In addition to dogs and cats, we proudly welcome small exotic pets to our practice, including rabbits and pocket pets. We also provide veterinary care to various avian (bird), reptilian, and amphibian species. If you have a non-venomous pet, we’re happy to care for them. From feathers to fur to scales, we welcome them all to our hospital!
Exotic Pet / Pocket Pet Veterinary Services
We understand the unique needs of exotic pets and apply our species-specific, low-stress handling techniques and veterinary care for every patient we meet. We also place a strong emphasis on husbandry during every visit, as this is often the solution for preventing and treating exotic pet health issues. Our husbandry counseling typically includes recommendations for the best atmosphere, enclosure, diet, toys, and handling techniques for your exotic pet. If you’re a first-time exotic pet owner, we take extra time to equip you with the information you need to help your companion live the longest, healthiest life possible, including the frequency of veterinary care.
In addition to husbandry counseling and education, the exotic pet services offered at Summit Animal Hospital include:
- Wellness exams
- Preventive care
- Therapeutic therapy
