Exotics and pocket pets might be small, but they are also mighty and they deserve – like humans and more conventional pet companions – the best of care.

At Alto Tiburon Veterinary Hospital, we are happy to see a wide array of exotic pets, reptiles, and small mammals, including turtles, tortoises, snakes, geckos, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, birds, backyard chickens, goats, and more.

We recognize that coming to the vet can be a stressful experience for any pet, particularly our small ones. Our staff and doctors are very sensitive to this fact and do whatever we can to limit this stress.

Your pet may be more relaxed if brought in its regular enclosure if possible. It is also best not to clean the enclosure prior to bringing your pet in. This will allow your pet to be surrounded by familiar, comfortable smells, and will also retain samples for diagnostic testing if needed to better evaluate your pet.

We also conduct physical examinations and can offer nutritional and environmental enrichment counseling tailored to the unique needs of your little one.

To schedule an appointment for your favorite furry, feathered, shelled, or scaly friend, give us a call at (415) 383-7700 today!
