Besides dogs and cats, we welcome furry, feathered, and scaled patients at Lone Mountain Animal Hospital. Our veterinary staff is well-trained in the unique medical and surgical care for exotic species. Our patients include, but are not limited to ferrets, rabbits, sugar gliders, guinea pigs, chinchillas, potbelly pigs, birds, lizards, snakes, and even fish.
Our separate exotic patient ward was designed with an exotic pet’s specific needs in mind. The quiet, low-traffic environment allows the housing of rabbits, small mammals, birds, and reptiles away from dog and cat areas. Since many exotic species thrive on consistency, please bring your own pet’s diet and special caging requirements.
