Exotic Animal Care

We’re happy to provide veterinary care to your exotic animals, too! Dr. Julie Blossom sees many kinds of exotic animals at Aztec Animal Clinic, including:

  • Backyard poultry (like chickens, ducks, turkeys and geese)
  • Small pet birds (like canaries, cockatiels, parakeets, lovebirds, Quaker parrots, finches, doves and pigeons)
  • Non-venomous snakes less than 4 feet in length
  • Lizards less than 4 feet in length (like bearded dragons and anoles), iguanas, salamanders, geckos and frogs
  • Turtles and tortoises (except for snapping turtles)
  • All species of rabbits
  • Ferrets and sugar gliders
  • Rats and mice
  • Chinchillas, gerbils and hamsters
  • Guinea pigs
  • Hedgehogs

We can advise on environmental requirements for these pets, like cage size, temperature, lighting and heat; changes that occur during the aging process; necessary vaccinations to prevent disease and normal and abnormal behaviors.
