Specialized Care for Exotic Pets on the Upper West Side

Today it’s easier than ever to carry for exotic pets and those with special dietary and lifestyle needs. With the ability to have any type of food at your door in a matter of hours, more and more people are purchasing and caring for animals like rodents, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and more.

However, issues arise when you attempt to bring one of these exotic creatures into a standard veterinarian’s office. Most veterinarians are trained to work on the common animals, like cats, dogs, horses, and sometimes even small rodents, but few have any experience with exotic pets such as monkeys, lizards, tropical birds, snakes, and more.

That’s where we come in. At Westside Veterinarian Center, you’ll have access to a team of specialists with experience working with all types of animals. Exotic pets need specialized care, and they can get it from us. Call us today to learn more.

Why special pets need special care

Unlike humans, an animal’s body systems, dietary needs, and care can differ greatly between one and the next. Veterinarians are already expected to take care of every body system for animals, despite the fact that human doctors can specialize in one area. A lack of knowledge about the systems and the unique needs of a specific type of animal can cause treatment to be ineffective or downright harmful.

Why come to us?

At Westside Veterinarian Center, our practitioners are trained to handle more than just cats and dogs. Despite the fact that most veterinarian schools only focus on these conventional animals, veterinarians are expected to know how to work with animals they’ve never seen before. All veterinarians are animal specialists, of course, but to feel good about the treatment your pet is receiving, it feels better to know that you’re bringing your beloved animal to a team that has seen it all.

Here’s why you should come to Westside Veterinary Center:

  • We understand the systems of every type of animal, giving us the basic knowledge needed to handle every classification: amphibians, reptiles, mammals, fish, birds, and more!

Through our compassionate care, we offer you the peace of mind that comes with knowing your animal is in capable hands.
