Species We See at Our Grapevine Exotic Animal Hospital

Species We See at Our Grapevine Exotic Animal Hospital

Exotic and avian species are widely varied, making them some of the most difficult pets for which to find expert veterinary care. At Texas Avian & Exotic Hospital, our team of skilled veterinarians is well-versed in many different species and our expertise covers an array of reptiles, birds, and small mammals.

Listed below are some of the common species we see along with links to our species-specific care pages that can give you an overview of each one’s requirements. This is by no means a list of species we only see, just the most common pets. If you have a pet not on this list, please feel free to contact us and ask if we can service them—chances are, we can!

If you’re considering adding an exotic pet to your family or have questions about your current pet, please ask! We’re here to help.

Species We Don’t See

Listing what we don’t see is important too! There are some animals that are simply not suitable as pets or are beyond our facility’s capabilities. Animals we do not take as patients include:

  • Old World Primates (such as Chimpanzees or Baboons)
  • Venomous snakes (such as cobras or copperheads)
  • Wildlife – while we are committed to caring for an injured or sick animal that is brought to us for one-time treatment and rehabilitation, we do not take wild animals as patients.
