Exotics have very specific nutritional and environmental requirements. Many people discover that having an exotic pet is quite a commitment as food requirements, light cycles, temperatures, and humidity requirements are all very specific. 

If your exotic pet is ever acting abnormal, not eating, drinking or lethargic we recommend bringing them in right away for an exam. Often times, when they start displaying mild signs of illness they are much worse than they appear. To have the best chance of successfully treating your pet it is very important to catch their illnesses early.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns you have!

Whether your pet has two legs or four, the Carolinas Veterinary Care Clinic team is here to help throughout every stage of their life.
