Exotic Pet Services
Exotic pets require special needs both at home and at the veterinary hospital. Oconee Veterinary Hospital cares for patients running the gambit from “pocket pets” to reptiles. We are equipped to offer treatment for a variety of exotics’ conditions, and can offer advice on proper conditions for their home environment.
