Birds and Reptiles

dragonThere are no routine vaccines available for these pets.

However, we do recommend annual health checks for all reptiles and birds.

For tortoises that are often in more need of parasite control and need checking before and after hibernation we hold twice yearly tortoise parties (Spring and Autumn) at Burghclere Down Community Centre. Please watch this website for news of these- we will mail all registered clients beforehand.

Other pet “exotics” need parasite control as required individually and we are happy to discuss how appropriate these may be to your pets.

African Grey Parrots are very prone to low blood calcium problems and we recommend a blood test for this (this can be done “in house” while you wait) at least once a year
