Exotic animals at Kitsap Veterinary Hospital in Port Orchard, Washington

Exotic Animal Care

Exotic pets are fascinating animals that can enrich our lives and broaden our understanding of the animal kingdom and the world we live in. To properly care for exotic animals we need a thorough understanding of natural behavior, environment, and diet. Many exotic pets are prey animals and they are experts at masking their feelings and hiding illnesses, so as not to become a target for a predator. With regular veterinary examinations, we can establish baseline weights, identify body condition, discuss diet, housing, and environmental enrichment. All are important in providing responsible care of our exotic companions.
