Exotic Animal Veterinarian in Kirkland
Finn Hill Animal Hospital offers optimum wellness care programs for exotic pets such as birds, reptiles and other exotic animals. Since it is often difficult to determine if an exotic pet is ill, we strongly recommend physical examinations twice a year to check for health problems plus annual monitoring to check for nutritional and husbandry-related conditions.
In order to survive attacks from their predators, exotic animals normally conceal their illnesses in the wild. As a result, their medical problems often go unnoticed for long periods of time. By the time you recognize that there is a problem with your exotic pet, the condition is often extremely serious. With bi-annual medical examinations by one of our veterinarians, problems are often diagnosed before they become serious medical conditions.
Your First Visit
After acquiring your new exotic pet, a complete wellness appointment is strongly recommended. This exam includes a thorough physical examination, husbandry and nutritional consultation, disease screening, and laboratory testing if necessary. Before bringing your pet into your home, you want to make sure that he or she is healthy.

Kirkland Avian Vet for Your Bird
Sometimes the hardest part about choosing an avian veterinarian is simply finding one. Finding an avian veterinarian and establishing a good relationship with him or her are perhaps two of the most beneficial things you can do for your pet bird.
A bird's anatomy and physiology are quite different from other pets. They require specialized care administered by a qualified veterinarian. We have full diagnostic and treatment capacities for our feathered friends. We're comfortable and confident in handling your pet bird.
Birds' instincts are also different from other pets. Birds mask symptoms to avoid showing signs of weakness to predators. Early detection of diseases and problems are difficult to see and are important to recognize. At Finn Hill Animal Hospital, we recommend new bird and annual health examinations. These visits give us the opportunity to examine your bird fully, undertake any minor procedures (nail, beak, and wing trimming) and discuss important aspects of husbandry, nutrition, behavior, and disease prevention. It also allows us to familiarize ourselves with each individual bird and their owners. Different types of birds react differently to certain medical procedures. We're knowledgeable about specific treatments that work for your particular species of bird.
If you are a new bird owner, it is likely that you have many questions about what to look out for in an avian veterinarian. We are capable of providing clear answers to all your questions. Call us for an appointment with your avian pet today.
