Small Bird Care

Birds, Reptiles, Rabbits And Small Mammals

Snakes, lizards, rats, gerbils, hamsters—bring us your birds, reptiles, and pocket pets!

Middletown Animal Hospital welcomes small mammals and reptiles. Our veterinarians can advise you about proper care, feeding, and maintenance of your pet, as well as treat illnesses and conditions specific to their species.

We are proud to offer veterinary services to exotic patients here at Middletown Animal Hospital. We encourage all owners of exotic pets to bring them in for annual visits; this allows us to track the health of your exotic pet over their lifetime. Exotic pets have specialized needs that are best guided by a veterinarian. For each type of exotic pet, we have what we feel is the most important basic information on each of the specific pages.

What Do We See?

Most pocket pets and small exotics. This includes but is not limited to rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, rats, sugar gliders, chinchillas, ferrets, and hedgehogs. We also see birds, as well as most reptiles and amphibians.

Resources For Exotic Pets

We understand that many exotic pet owners will want to do some research on their own. There is a lot of information on the internet, so we want to provide our clients with some of the most reputable sources of quality information.
