Observations from Angela Lennox, DVM:

Traveling with Your Exotic Companion?

How do you find a good qualified exotic veterinarian when an injury or illness strikes while on the road with your pet? This question comes up from time to time, and we’ve heard stories of our clients finding great places to care for their pets, and other stories where care couldn’t be found, or wasn’t ideal.

If you are planning travel, give us a call and we will make recommendations based on where you’re going.  We know lots of great exotic vets all over the United States and even in a lot of other countries too!

Another great resources is the Vet Finder link on the website of the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners. Choose a location and a specialty (avian, exotic companion mammal or reptile) on the site.

Other options are the “Find a Vet” search tools on the websites of the Association of Avian Veterinarians, the Association of Exotic Mammal Veterinarians, and the Association of Reptile and Amphibian Veterinarians.
