Exotic Pets Services

Reptiles and amphibians have become more popular over the years. They can be great pets for those with allergies or people living in apartments that only allow caged pets. Within Winnipeg, it is important to review the Exotic Pet Bylaw prior to adopting/purchasing an exotic pet to ensure you are in compliance with the bylaw. Some species are relatively easy to care for while others are best kept by experienced owners. It is crucial to do research to ensure you provide an optimum environment for your pet. We are happy to help guide you in the right direction and answer any questions you may have. Symptoms of illness in exotic pets may be subtle. Regular health exams and fecal testing can help detect problems early and are recommended. Zoonotic (spread animals to humans) diseases are not uncommon so CAREFUL attention to good hygiene is extremely important when owning these pets.
