Caring for Exotics
Some types of pet require specialist care and expertise, exotics is one of these.
We have several vets in Brighton who have experience of exotics and who can help
you with advice. If you’re new to exotics, they will be happy to talk with you about
your chosen species to ensure it’s right for your lifestyle and that you can give
it the care it needs. This will include habitat, care and diet.
Céline’s 45 minute feather plucking service is great value for money. She can also do beak and nail trimming too.”
Most exotics need to be kept in environments as similar to that of their natural
habitat as possible. You may need to buy heated vivariums, source natural materials
for climbing or burrowing, manage the humidity of its habitat and provide live food.
This can be expensive and time consuming, which is why some exotic pets aren’t recommended
for beginners. If you’re new to exotics, give us a call first.
Having cared for many exotic pets over the years, we’ve put together some care sheets
on some of the most popular species. These include the Bearded Dragon, Corn Snake,
Tarantulas, Boas and Crested Gecko.
