Exotic pets

Brian Stenson and William Wildgoose have both had a professional special interest in exotic pets for over 20 years. They have provided services to private clients, pet shops, city farms, zoo collections and public aquaria in the past.

Although we commonly see small mammals such as rabbits and guinea pigs, we have also treated primates, reptiles, birds, amphibians, invertebrates and fish. Our experience and knowledge enables us to handle most species confidently and allow us to examine your pet in detail.


Many of the procedures carried out in dogs and cats are also performed on various exotic pets, including giving anaesthetics, and taking X-rays and blood samples for further investigations.

The practice has an extensive library of books and journals on most species of exotic pets and access to other specialist information through professional internet list servers. This is particularly important since very few of the veterinary medicines available are licensed for use in exotic pets.


We are members of the British Veterinary Zoological Society and regularly attend conferences and meetings
to keep up to date with current practice in exotic animal medicine.
