Ponchatoula Animal Hospital offers wellness exams and general health care for exotic animals including pocket pets such as guinea pigs, sugar gliders, chinchillas, gerbils, hamsters, rats, and mice. We also provide care to rabbits, turtles, iguanas, geckos, bearded dragons, non venomous snakes, and more.

Exotic companion animals are unique and delicate and are becoming more and more popular as pets. Their anatomy, physiology, and behavior are vastly different from dogs and cats, yet they require the same amount of expertise and care. We offer advice on all aspects of an exotic pet’s diet, husbandry, hygiene, habitat, and general care needed for a healthy lifestyle.

Yearly wellness examinations are strongly recommended for all exotic companion pets. Because they are so unique, exotic animals require special care, and as is the case with all animals, they have natural traits that need to be maintained such as the length of nails and teeth. The wellness examination is also an opportunity to review care and husbandry requirements and to detect possible problems early in an effort to treat health conditions before they become advanced.

Ponchatoula Animal Hospital is here for exotic pets in the Ponchatoula, Robert, Hammond, and surrounding areas. Call today to schedule your pets appointment!

A family operated practice, Ponchatoula Animal Hospital welcomes you into a professional, yet warm and friendly atmosphere.
