Exotics and Pocket Pets

Exotics and Pocket Pets

We are proud to have Dr. Maria Carolina Grillo on our team for our exotic patients!

Dr. Grillo sees non-venomous reptiles, backyard poultry, exotic pets and small mammals known as “pocket pets”. Other unique species may be approved by the doctor, so please ask! Your exotic pet can benefit greatly from regular checkups and wellness visits. Even for the most observant owner, the onset of health conditions can be gradual and difficult to detect. This is why we recommend regular examinations for all exotic pets such as rabbits, gerbils, turtles, lizards, and snakes.
