We Care for Pets of All Shapes, Sizes & Species
Did you know ferrets are required to have an annual rabies vaccine in Indiana? Did you know some reptiles are sold very small but grow to considerable lengths? Did you know guinea pigs can catch colds or that hedgehogs frequently transmit Salmonella? If not, don’t worry—we do!
At Kryder Veterinary Clinic, we see more than just dogs and cats—we’re here for your pocket pets and scaly friends, too. We understand that while there is a great deal of similarity between species, there are also important differences. There are special considerations when choosing an exotic pet. If you are thinking about a new addition to your home, let us help you choose the right pet.
When it comes to the care of an exotic pet, husbandry is the most important influence on health. Husbandry refers to the housing, environment, and feeding of animals. The vast majority of health problems in exotics occur from improper husbandry. For example, did you know it is important for turtles to have special lighting or that rabbits need special bedding? If you have an exotic pet at home, talk to us about how to properly care for your special pets.
Don’t hesitate to contact us for more information about the veterinary services we offer for your exotic or pocket pet.
