Avian & Exotic Pets
Care for Birds, Reptiles & Mammals in Harrisburg
Our veterinarians at Colonial Park Animal Clinic offer routine wellness and preventive care services for your bird or other exotic pet. We also treat exotic pets with medical or behavioral concerns.
- Wellness & Preventive Care
Just like cats and dogs, birds and other exotic pets live long, happy and healthy lives. Our trained veterinarians provide care and look after veterinary treatment and husbandry needs of these species.
During your pet's first wellness visit, we will review your pet's care, housing and nutritional needs in detail. The vet will perform a complete and thorough physical exam, then discuss and recommend vaccines and health screening tests, in addition to behavior or health concerns and any husbandry issues. We can also answer any questions you may have. Recommendations will be tailored to your pet's needs, while considering your circumstances.
- Sick Pet Appointments & Daytime Emergencies
Birds and other exotic pets with health or behavior concerns can be brought to us for an examination by a qualified vet. If possible, please call (717) 540-7140 before coming to determine when an appointment is available. While we do accept walk-in and walk-in emergencies for exotic pets, an additional fee may be warranted for double booking of appointments..
- After Hours Emergencies
Our animal clinic is fully equipped to meet the needs of critically ill birds, reptiles and other exotic pets. Our Emergency Services is staffed by a team of veterinarians, registered veterinary technicians, and support staff.
Please call in advance if possible to find out if a vet is available to evaluate your exotic pet.
If your veterinarian determines that your pet needs expertise or a procedure that we do not offer at Colonial Park Animal Clinic, we can refer you to an experienced exotic pet specialist in our area. We are connected to a network of exceptional veterinary specialists.
