What Happens at Your Exotic Pet’s Annual Physical?
When you bring your pet to LIBEVC for an annual physical, our professional exotic pet vets will give your pet a full head to tail physical exam. One of our experienced technicians will also take the time to discuss husbandry and offer suggestions about how to care for your pet. At the appointment, our doctors will offer recommendations about your pet based on the results of tests they run. We routinely screen for illness and malnutrition using blood-work, fecal testing, and other diagnostics as needed.
