Exotic Pet Boarding at Anderson Exotic Veterinary Clinic
Have you thought about what to do with your exotic pet when you must travel, spend time in the hospital, or otherwise experience separation from that special animal? All pets require proper care and attention on a daily basis -- not just dogs and cats, but also creatures such as birds, reptiles, and furry "pocket pets." When you can't be on hand to provide that care yourself, you need to know that someone else can. Anderson Exotic Veterinary Clinic here in San Diego is proud to offer pet boarding for many kinds of exotic animals.
Why Boarding Makes Sense for Your Exotic Animal
It's never an ideal solution to leave even the most independent animal alone for long periods of time. The occasional visit and feeding from a friend or neighbor will do little to quell some animals' tendency toward separation anxiety. Worse, your pet might experience a sudden health crisis while no one is there to notice and arrange for veterinary aid.
There's also the issue of dealing with exotic pets' special needs. Some exotic pets require careful temperature control in their enclosures. Others need constant exposure to UVA and UVB rays, which means making sure that those lamps are functioning properly. Enclosures must receive regular cleaning, with fresh bedding laid down to prevent disease. Additionally, a friend or neighbor who knows how to feed a dog or cat may struggle to administer seed, specialized pellets, or even live prey to an exotic pet.
Specialized Boarding for Exotic Pets' Needs
When you book a stay at our exotic pet boarding facility, you can rest assured that these and other issues will be taken care of with proper skill, resources, and understanding. Our veterinary team can provide a variety of enclosures and environments, all kept scrupulously clean and provided with the necessary UV lamps, water, food, and bedding.
