Exotic Pets

Exotic pets have unique nutritional and husbandry requirements. At McKnight Veterinary Hospital we take the time to care for every animal that comes to us and have the ability and knowledge to care for these pets.

What type of exotic pets do you service?

Rabbits, ferrets, and lizards.
