From feathers to fur, Bienville Animal Medical Center gladly welcomes pets of various species to our practice, including those of the avian, reptilian, and small mammalian families. Just like a dog or cat, exotic pets should have wellness exams at least once a year, and not just when they’re sick. Since many avian and exotic species are prey in the wild, they instinctually hide their illnesses and other weaknesses as a means of self-defense. This means that when a pet DOES show noticeable signs of illness, it’s often too late to treat the condition. Our exotic veterinarians have years of experience with caring for avian and exotic pets and understand their unique needs and behaviors. They can also customize a treatment plan to meet your companion’s needs, with consideration to species and age. Call us at (228) 872-1231 to schedule an appointment for your pet!
