Care for Birds, Reptiles & Mammals in Modesto
At American Pet Hospital, our team of veterinary professionals provides exotic vet care for pets including routine wellness and preventive care services for your bird or other exotic pet.
Our team is also available to see your exotic pet for any medical or behavioral concerns you may have.
- Wellness & Preventive Care
Much like cats and dogs, birds and other exotic pets benefit from regular veterinary care to help them live a long, happy, and healthy life. Our veterinarians are trained in the unique care, husbandry needs, and veterinary treatment of these animal species.
During the initial wellness visit, our vet will thoroughly review your pet’s housing, nutrition, and care. A complete and thorough physical exam will then be performed.
Health screening tests and vaccines will be discussed and recommended when indicated. Our veterinarian will discuss any husbandry, health, or behavior concerns with you and answer any questions you might have.
Recommendations regarding the care or treatment of your exotic pet will be tailored by our vet to the needs of your animal and their family.
- Sick Pet Appointments & Daytime Emergencies
Birds and other exotic pets with health or behavior concerns can be seen by our specialist. If possible, please call (209) 549-8387 in advance to determine the availability of our specialist. While we do accept walk-in and work-in emergencies for exotic pets, there may be an additional fee if a double booking of appointments occurs.
