The term exotics covers all species which are not domestic cat and dog, domestic equine, or commercial farm animals. This means an exotics vet will see rabbits, small mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, invertebrates, backyard poultry and pet farm species, wildlife and zoo species.
With exotic pets becoming ever more popular with clients, and our knowledge and understanding of their unique husbandry and medical needs growing, finding an exotics vet to treat these animals is essential.
Luckily here at Vets4Pets Newmarket we have a dedicated team lead by Iain Cope, who has both worked extensively in this field, and is well known by peers and clients alike. Iain has ensured the surgery has dedicated equipment and hospital facilities for these species, as well as the latest anaesthetic, medical and surgical abilities for these unique patients. Iain takes exotic referrals from other veterinary surgeons for complex cases and those that require an experienced eye.
The surgery is also able to board exotic patients and has a dedicated boarding service. As spaces can become limited, this is run on a first come first served basis, so ensure you arrange your booking well in advance.
Please feel free to contact the surgery to enquire about the exotics service, referral for your pet, or the boarding service. Here at Vets4Pets Newmarket nothing is unusual!
