Dietary and husbandry advice
Unfortunately, despite the owner's best intentions, in our experience, as many as 95% of cases of disease in exotic pets are caused by incorrect husbandry.
That is why we are pleased to offer complimentary post-consultation appointments with our exotic's nurse. Whether your question is about providing the correct diet for your beloved macaw, creating environmental enrichment for your red-eared terrapin, or housing your chameleon correctly, we will be happy to help.
