Vet Referrals, Advice For Vets

Exotic species are now common as captive animals in the UK, and vary from traditional companion species such as rabbits and budgies, to highly complex and valuable animals like exotic felids and eagles. Not only do these species often have very different anatomy and physiology to domestic pets but they typically have complex husbandry requirements and captive management can be a factor in many pathologies.

Exotic Experience

Our team of vets are familiar not only with the veterinary management of exotics but have a wide range of personal experience in aviculture, herpetoculture and keeping of exotic mammals.

24 Hour Service

Referrals are preferably seen in the morning to allow further investigation and ongoing treatment during the day. However, we are able to provide 24 hour cover for emergencies with our own vets on site both day and night.

Purpose-Built

Our Edgbaston branch has been refurbished to a high standard with purpose-built separate hospital wards for predatory and prey exotic species, designated isolation facilities and handling equipment designed to manage these non-domestic species safely. On-site diagnostics allow rapid assessment and management of cases. Our veterinary and nursing staff are trained to deal with a huge variety of non-traditional species, including zoo species.
