Why a spe­cial vet?

Prevention (USA) - - FAMILY -

“Ask­ing how to care for your ex­otic pet at the pet store is like ask­ing for health ad­vice for your kid at the toy store,” ex­plains Christoph Mans, D.V.M., an as­so­ciate pro­fes­sor of zo­o­log­i­cal medicine at the Univer­sity of Wis­con­sin-Madi­son. In­stead, bring your new friend to a vet spe­cial­ist as soon as you get him and sched­ule an­nual vis­its af­ter that. The preva­lence of vet­eri­nary prac­tices spe­cial­iz­ing in these species is on the rise, ac­cord­ing to Jeff Rhody, D.V.M., of Lakeside Vet­eri­nary Cen­ter in Mary­land.
