Avian and Exotic Pets

Here at Altas Palmas Animal Clinic, we love exotic pets. Dr. Dittman treats birds, reptiles, ferrets, rabbits, and other small mammals. We routinely spay and neuter rabbits and perform other surgeries, lab work, radiology, and other care as needed on these special pets.

Ferrets require an annual rabies vaccination and should also be on year-round heartworm preventive. Other exotic pets, in general, do not need vaccinations, but should be seen for annual wellness examinations. We also trim birds nails, wings, and beaks and provide nutritional counseling.

We do NOT treat big cats, primates, poisonous snakes, raccoons, or skunks and do NOT recommend keeping these species as pets.
