Ohio exotics vets are pretty plentiful and if you think you don't need to take your pet rabbit, ferret, bird, or other exotic pet to one because you don't vaccinate them then you're wrong. Even if the kind of pet you have doesn't require vaccines they should still get at least an annual check-up with an exotics vet. Exotics are very good at hiding their illnesses until they just can't cover it up any longer therefore it is very important to catch diseases early on and before your pet starts showing symptoms. But why don't all vets see all kinds of pets?

An exotics vet has had extra training and has extra equipment to enable them to treat exotic pets. Reptiles and other animals are very different than cats and dogs so not every vet out there can treat them.

If you can't find the right exotics vet for you in Ohio, consider checking a neighboring state. And if you have a vet who isn't on this list (or know of one who is on this list and is no longer practicing or at the clinic listed) send me an e-mail so that I can make changes. And if you are lucky, you may see me!
