What They're Saying About Us...

Dr. Shachar Malka is really a genius when it comes to exotics. I'm so grateful for his kind and expert care. He helped my bunny through a very difficult year. He thinks out-of-the-box, solving exotic pet problems with extensive knowledge combined with unique and creative solutions. If you have an exotic pet, he/she (and you) will find the best of care here.
