Qualifications as Exotic Pet Vets
All veterinarians are trained to treat all species and types of animals in veterinary school. However, not every veterinarian chooses to treat ALL animals. Some limit their practices to domestic animals like dogs and cats. Others limit themselves to farm animals.
Veterinarians who truly want to treat exotic pets receive additional training in treating non-domestic animals. In the event that your pet needs additional care we can refer you to a board-certified exotic specialist (ABVP or ACZM). While there are less than 300 of these in the world, we are lucky to have resources at Colorado State University in Fort Collins. We have the experience and, most importantly, the passion to help all animals, regardless of species. When you bring your pet to Parker Center Animal Clinic, you can expect your vet to be dedicated to your exotic pet’s health.
