When should I take my pet to a vet?

Preventative care and education may be the most valuable asset you have to offer your pet. It is recommended that you have your pet examined by a veterinarian as soon as you acquire him/her. Your vet can instruct you on proper husbandry, diet, disease prevention, behavioral expectations and many other important facts that you should be familiar with to best care for your pet. Even if you have had your companion for months or perhaps years, you may need to adjust their diet to provide your pet a better chance to live a long, healthy life.

If your pet shows any signs of illness—such as lack of appetite, lethargy, depression, abnormal urine or bowel movements, or anything else unusual—you should see a vet immediately! Many species of exotic animals can hide illnesses for a substantial amount of time and may be critical by the time they show obvious signs.

What are the benefits of getting my pet sexed?

Getting your pet sexed can help you understand your pet’s behavior and assist in modifying that behavior. It also aids in pairing amongst breeding birds and reptiles. Perhaps most importantly, it may support a diagnosis of an illness specific to one gender or the other (ie, egg related peritonitis in birds).
