In your search for a veterinary facility, we believe you should expect high quality care as well as great service. Our goal has been to assemble a veterinary health care team committed to providing exceptional client service and veterinary health care. Our commitment to you is to continue to offer our world class service and a state of the art veterinary facility.
Choose a veterinarian who is calm, compassionate and willing to explain all the procedures your pet undergoes. Try to find a vet with whom both you and your pet feel comfortable. Try to have it convenient, choose a clinic with qualified staff and facilities to undertake surgery and perform procedures requiring anesthesia.
At Exoticare we believe that having well informed owners is the first step to keep your pet healthy.
Because caring for your bird or exotic pet can be very challenging and not all information out there is accurate, our first appointments are very complete and review everything you need to know to take good care of your pet.
If the appointment is done at the clinic we recommend that you bring pictures of the animals habitat, as well as diet, treats, toys, etc. When we do the house calls we will review all those details at home with you.
We strongly advise that you find an exotic animal vet before you have an emergency because these animals are very delicate and it is always good to have established a relationship before you are in need of help.
We understand that not animals are easy to work with and many get extremely nervous in different environments. For all these pets, house calls are a great option! Staying in their own environment will significantly decrease the stress level and exposure to diseases.
It's a good idea to keep an accurate medical diary not only of the procedures and vaccinations your pet receives at the vet, but also of notes on things like your pet's elimination habits and any physical changes or unusual occurrences. Keep track of small shifts in your pet's behavior, including urinary marking habits and mood swings, along with diet and routine modifications. Take this notebook when you visit the vet. These seemingly unrelated occurrences may help explain results of your pet's medical tests. Also, if you need to change vets, it's good to have this journal to provide a complete medical history.
Our Surgeries and hospital appointments are performed at a veterinary hospital located in the South Miami area.
All appointments are booked directly with us. We alternate our appointments between the hospital and the house calls.
The prices are the same at home or the hospital, but house calls have an additional mileage/travel time charge of $1/mile roundtrip.
