In need of specialized care for your exotic pet?
At North Hampton Animal Hospital, we recognize that pets come in all shapes, sizes and species. Whether you prefer your companion with fur, shells or scales, we’ve got the medical care and support you need. We understand the unique needs of exotic pets and we’re prepared to help your special friend not only survive, but thrive!

All exotic pets benefit from veterinary care, proper diet, gentle handling, and correct management of their environment. Because they often live in cages or other enclosures, extra attention must be paid to your exotic pet’s special living needs. For example, each species of unusual mammal has its own specific need for housing, diet and care. Additionally, each kind of reptile may require specific food, bedding, humidity and lighting. Regardless of the differences among them, all exotics need access to medical and surgical veterinary care.

Our doctors have experience treating these unique creatures and enjoy providing preventive care as well as educational services for owners. We will always make sure that the best routine and preventive care is available to your pet. Because there is much to learn about each species of exotic animal, our veterinarians are able to offer advice concerning nutrition, husbandry, and health care. In addition, we perform procedures such as spaying, neutering and dental care. Finally, behavioral advice is offered to help with non-medical problems such as loneliness, separation anxiety, and person-pet interactions.

If your exotic pet experiences a health problem, our doctors can assist with that as well. Services are available for the diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of medical conditions. These services include thorough physical examinations, along with diagnostic procedures such as radiographs, blood tests, skin scrapings and biopsies. Surgery is available to correct problems including dental disease, internal conditions, injuries, and tumors. Additionally, medications and supplements tailored to the needs of exotic pets are also available.
