Exotic Pet Services

Do you prefer your animal companion to be covered in feathers or scales? Is the company of an exotic pet something you relish?

At Fayetteville Veterinary Hospital, we recognize that not everyone chooses traditional pets, like dogs or cats. We also understand that birds, reptiles and exotics have special needs and requirements to help keep them happy and healthy. Our team is fully trained in exotic pet care. We can answer any questions you may have about a new or existing pet.

Fayetteville Veterinary Hospital treats all kinds of exotic animals, including but not limited to:

  • Birds 
  • Parrots (Macaws, Cockatoos, Amazons, Cockatiels, Parakeets, etc.)

Exotic animals can make very rewarding companions, but it’s important to remember that because they are not a typical pet, they have unique needs. Choosing to own an exotic pet requires a special kind of owner – one that can commit to providing the appropriate care and environment. 

Many people are also surprised to hear that exotic pets need regular check-ups. New pet exams are perhaps even more important for exotic creatures than for cats and dogs. In addition to a thorough exam, we’ll discuss special environmental and nutritional needs of your pet. 

Get your new exotic companion off to a good start! Call us today to schedule a new pet exam and consultation! The experienced team at Fayetteville Veterinary Hospital can provide the guidance, advice and support you need to help your unique pet thrive.

      The doctors and staff at Fayetteville Veterinary Hospital are AMAZING!! Dr. Bunnell is great with my four-legged babies. I also have nothing but great things to say about Dr. Bennett! We have been going to Fayetteville Vet for almost 20 years now. Dr. Bunnell diagnosed our 13 year old Boston Terrier with Cushing’s Disease and surely contributed to the comfortable extra year of life we had with her. He is great with my current 3 dogs and my moms dog! He always answers my questions and concerns honestly. The staff always great my fur babies by name and with love! I wouldn’t want to take my babies anywhere else. Thank you for taking the BEST care of my frequent flyer babies! Bucksley, Bailey, and Bobo say thank you, too! ❤️🐾

      The staff here is so friendly and Dr Bunnel spent almost twenty mins on the phone explaining each and every shot and the best cost options for flea and tick medicine. It’s so refreshing and absolutely amazing that he took the time to talk to me.

      We lost our beloved Shadow last night. My family and I cannot thank everyone (including Dr. Bunnell, Zach, Stephanie, Linda, Pam, Bonnie, and those I’m forgetting right now, I apologize but you know who you are) enough for all the help and especially the love you gave Shadow over these past rough couple of weeks. You all are truly guardian angels. Not all super hero’s wear capes. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
