Birds & Exotics


A great number of people now own exotic species as pets. Fortunately a lot of veterinary information now exists and successfully treating these animals is no longer uncommon. Most illnesses are secondary to inappropriate husbandry. Information on how best to house and feed these animals is now readily available and prospective owners are encouraged to do a lot of research before they obtain their pet.

Here at Woodlands we have developed a reputation for having the knowledge and providing a good first opinion service for treating birds and reptiles. Most days we would expect to see either a hawk, parrot, chicken, snake, tortoise or lizard in the waiting area!
