Yes, we have Exotic Animal Vet Services here at Lantana-Atlantis Animal Hospital provided by Doctor Kirsten Love. She has owned tarantulas, scorpions, snakes and worked with the Minnesota Herpetological Society. Many exotics hide illness so exams 1-2 times per year are recommended.
Beak, wing, and nail trims are done routinely by our staff so if your favorite critter has scales, feathers, fur, or a shell, Dr. Love is very comfortable treating these types of pets. Known to be more delicate than the cats and dogs that we see, exotics of all types need that extra special care and a good eye to determine perfect health. These animals are very crafty at purposely hiding illness because some of these species are animals of prey and illness to them is a sign of weakness that they don’t ever like to show. We can’t stress to you enough to get your exotic animals to the vet early and never take a “wait and see” attitude. Dr. Love will always be excited to see our community snakes, lizards, gerbils, hamsters, rats, guinea pigs, sugar gliders, birds, rabbits, ferrets and many more. Dr. Love has taken hundreds of hours of specialized training in exotic species.
Advance notice is required for venomous animals.
Bring them one and all!
Thank you for being there for my little girl this past week. Had the chance to work will all 3 doctors throughout this week (and many techs/front desk girls) and even though I felt like a crazy dog mom calling every 5 minutes to check on her, this team took the time to be there for me and my little girl. Can't tell you how much you made these past couple days less stressful. Glad to have her home, and glad your team was on her side! Thank you, you'll never know what you gave me back.
