Our veterinarians at Block House Creek Animal Hospital have an incredible depth of experience in caring for exotic pets, pocket pets and birds in Cedar Park, Texas. These unique pets require special care, and our staff is knowledgeable and well-trained to give the best care available.
Finding a vet clinic that can handle exotic pets can be difficult as most veterinary clinics do not provide services for exotic pets. Block House Creek Animal Hospital, however, is equipped to examine all exotic pets, including reptiles and amphibians, and welcomes them with open arms. Reptiles and amphibians have become popular pets because they are unique and especially engaging but these pets have a particular set of care requirements. If you are new to owning and caring for reptiles and amphibians, you should schedule a consultation with your veterinarian soon after bringing your new pet home.
We can provide wellness exams for your exotic pets and recommend bringing them in every 6-12 months for preventative care and examinations. We also offer behavioral and dietary consultations, diagnostic testing, and tips on proper husbandry and handling.
Pocket pets are smaller household pets, such as guinea pigs, hamsters, mice, rats, gerbils, and hedgehogs. Every pocket pet is unique with different care and treatment requirements. Pocket pets are especially sensitive to their environment, and our veterinarians can teach you all of the important specifics unique to caring for your furry friend. We can give you helpful tips for safely and comfortably handling your pet, as well as offer advice about a proper diet, toys and cage accessories, and general maintenance and care.
For birds, we offer many different veterinary services, including wellness exams, parasite, bacteria or yeast examinations, blood tests, behavioral and dietary consultations, and grooming & wing trimming. Birds are proud animals and often mask illnesses until it is far too late. For this reason, we recommend that you bring your bird in for a wellness exam every 6-12 months to keep on top of any changes in health or development of disease in your winged pets. For new bird owners, we recommend having a full examination done before taking your new pet home. Birds who have had recent contact with other birds in a pet store are far more likely to be infected with contagious diseases, parasites or bacteria. This is also important if you have other birds already at home, as new birds can bring dangerous parasites and disease home to your existing pets.
