Exotic Pet Care in Mooresville
In addition to cats and dogs, our Mooresville vets also treat 'exotic' pets like birds, rabbits, and reptiles, as well as pocket pets like hamsters and guinea pigs.
Special Care for Your Special Pet
Veterinary care for exotics pets including birds, reptiles, and small mammals (such as mice, hamsters, rabbits, ferrets, chinchillas, hedgehogs, guinea pigs, and rats) is often overlooked because owners are unaware of the medical care these unique little animals need.
Our staff is familiar with the physiology and unique care requirements for a broad range of pets. We make it our mission to provide the exceptional veterinary care each and every one of our patients deserve, no matter their size or type.

What type of veterinary care do exotics need?
Like cats and dogs, exotic pets require regular physical exams and veterinary care to ensure they are healthy, and that any developing health issues are detected early. We will keep track of your pet’s baseline vital statistics, and identify any changes that might indicate a health issue.
During your pet's initial appointment, the vet will complete a physical examination and discuss their housing and nutritional needs with you. We will also review symptoms of common illnesses that you should look out for, and recommend routine preventative health care based on your pet's unique needs.
If your pet becomes ill, our animal hospital is equipped with full diagnostic capabilities, including radiography, bloodwork and urinalysis.
