Exotic Pet Care

Your pet comes first at Desert Ridge Animal Hospital, and we show you how that’s true with our exotic pet care services.

Exotic Pet Care

Pet owners easily recognize signs of illness in cats and dogs, but these clues can be elusive in exotic animals. Regular wellness exams and basic diagnostic testing are the foundations needed to identify health concerns before overt illness occurs. Regular check-ups, blood screenings, and parasite testing allow us to catch the underlying illnesses and decrease organ function, parasites, or infection even before your pet shows signs of being sick.

Many exotic species have specific dietary and housing requirements, and poor health and significant diseases can result when they aren’t met. We will provide you with the specific information you need to keep your pet happy and healthy.
