We know that caring for your exotic pet requires special knowledge and experience, and our veterinary team is here to support your beloved pet's health and well-being.
Our team is dedicated to providing reptiles and small mammals with proper care so that they can have long and healthy lives. We are also here for you whenever your pets are not feeling well.
The Brodheadsville team are skilled professionals who are well-trained in the care of reptiles and small mammals. We want the best for your pet and can give you the information you need to keep them looking and feeling great.
At Brodheadsville Veterinary Clinic, we provide routine wellness and preventive care services for your exotic pet. Exotic pets can also be seen for medical or behavioral concerns.
Much like cats and dogs, exotic pets benefit from regular veterinary care to help live a long, happy, and healthy life. Our vets are trained in the unique care and husbandry needs and veterinary treatment of these special pets.
During the initial wellness visit, our vet will thoroughly review your pet’s habitat, diet, and overall care. A complete physical exam will be performed, after which health screening tests and vaccines will be discussed and recommended when necessary. Our vet will discuss any husbandry, health, or behavior concerns with you and answer any questions you might have. Recommendations will be tailored to the needs of your pet and their family.
When you bring your exotic pet in for a routine exam, we will assess the overall health of your pet. We will perform a thorough physical examination, recommend any necessary preventive care, and answer any questions you may have about your pet to help ensure their good health.
Exotic pets with health or behavior concerns can be seen by our vet, but we recommend calling (570) 992-6900 in advance to determine the availability of our exotic animal vet. While we do accept walk-in and work-in emergencies for exotic pets, there may be an additional fee if the double booking of appointments occurs.
Exotic mammals include small animals like rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, hedgehogs, chinchillas, rats, mice, hamsters, and gerbils. Many exotic pets are prey species in the wild and can be adept at hiding the signs of illness until it is quite advanced, which is why preventive veterinary care is so important.
Reptiles are air-breathing vertebrates that can include iguanas, tortoises, lizards, turtles, snakes, and more. Covered in special skin made of bony plates, hard scales, or a combination of both, they regularly shed an outer layer of skin and must be kept in special habitats to give them the best quality of life.
To give your pet reptile the best chance at a healthy life, habitat and diet must be meticulously maintained. Preventive care is critical.
At Brodheadsville Veterinary Clinic, we provide dedicated veterinary care for many types of exotic pets, including:
Ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, hamsters, gerbils, sugar gliders, hedgehogs, and others.
Lizards, turtles and tortoises, snakes, frogs, and others.
