Exotic Pet Veterinarians
Treating Exotic Pets in Philadelphia, Bucks County and Montgomery County
Pets of all breeds, shapes, and sizes deserve to enjoy a good life. Though many of our patients are dogs and cats, we are also happy to treat exotic pets. Our exotic pet veterinarians at Rhawnhurst Animal Hospital offer preventative health services and emergency medicine and surgery for a wide range of unique pets.
Though we are equipped to see and treat many exotic species, we will not accept wild animals, fish, venomous animals, or zoo animals without permits. Be sure to check the legality of the species you are interested in.
Our team treats:
- Guinea pigs
- Mice and rats
- Sugar gliders

Purchasing or Adopting an Exotic Pet
If you are thinking about bringing an exotic pet into your home, the team at Rhawnhurst Animal Hospital is here to help you deliver the best possible care to your new pal. The first step is to decide which exotic pet best suits your lifestyle. Do plenty of research online. If possible, talk to people who own or have owned the pet you are interested in. Our exotic veterinarians in Rhawnhurst are also happy to answer your questions.
Remember: Your pet is a lifetime commitment. You should be ready and willing to take on the responsibility of caring for your exotic pet. Make sure you’ve done your research to understand the commitment you are making in terms of time and finances.
Ensuring Your Exotic Pet’s Health
After bringing your pet home, schedule a wellness examination at Rhawnhurst Animal Hospital. We can make sure your pet is healthy and that you have all the information and resources needed to deliver appropriate care. We’ll discuss your pet’s cage, lighting, food, and more.
We can also look for signs that your pet might be sick, which could include:
- Change in weight
- Change in personality
- Difficulty breathing
- Coughing or sneezing
Exotic pets are particularly good at hiding their illnesses. It’s important to familiarize yourself with your pet’s healthy habits and normal behaviors so that you’ll be able to notice any abnormalities.
Our veterinarians use the most current medicine and technology.
We strive to provide the same quality of care that we would want for our family.
We employ some of the best Doctors in the industry to care for your furry family.
