Exotic and Small Animal Care

Have you dreamed of owning an exotic animal but haven’t taken the leap because you aren’t sure what’s involved? We’re proud to help care for all types of creatures; including snakes, rabbits, hamsters and more!

At Graylyn Crest, we offer a pre-purchase consultation to help you decide what type and breed of exotic animal is right for you. Your in-depth, personalized discussion with a veterinarian with expertise in avians and exotics will cover important topics including:

  • Husbandry
  • Housing
  • Breed-specific medical concerns
  • Diet
  • Disease prevention
  • Wellness care

These consultations help prepare people for their new pets and their unique needs and are available to anyone considering bringing an exotic into their home. Dr. Thomas Wilkerson is available for consultations.
