Exotic Pets

Emma with hedgehogThe interest in exotic species has grown rapidly over the last few years, resulting in many people keeping a wide variety of creatures as pets.

Providing the correct environment is crucial for the health and very existence of these creatures. Sadly, mistakes made in providing the correct living conditions mean that many do not survive past their first year in owner's homes.

We are very fortunate at Orchard Vets that one of our resident Vets, Emma Corfield, has a special interest in exotic animals. Emma has additional qualifications in this specialised field and is able to both treat and give advice on a wide range of exotic species.

So, whether you have a bearded dragon, a Hermann's tortoise, an Amazon parrot, a porcupine or something in between, give us a call and we will be happy to arrange an appointment with Emma.
