    Default What are the common exotic animals treated by exotic veterinarians?

    It's much harder to tend to exotic animals especially we are not sure if they are dangerous or what? Bats fall into this, right?

    Birds and reptiles are the usual. I believe hares and other rodents are exotic too.

    I've researched about bats, and they belong to the exotic animals. Apparently, they are blamed for the COVID virus.

    Bats are not exotic pets by any means.

    There are actually two different terms which should not be confused with each other.

    Exotic Pet: Should have all of the conditions (Legal, Public Health, Welfare Issues, etc.) of an appropriate pet but it is not a dog or cat so that it is called an exotic pet

    Exotic animal: Every animal which does not belong to a certain area or country would be called an exotic animal It may be kept in a zoo for instance (A Luristan newt in the US is determined an exotic animal). But it may not be a pet! Because a tiger for example, is not a suitable pet!

    A wild free-range animal on the other hand is not a pet never!

    Bats may be exotic animals kept at some zoos but they are not pets.


    And regarding your question on the topic's title, exotic vets usually treat these species: Pet birds, pet rabbits, pet rodents (e.g. Guinea pigs, hamster, chinchillas, etc), pet reptiles such as captive bred green iguanas, red-eared sliders, pythons, etc and other pet species including some captive pet amphibians, fish and even invertebrates are those we see in practice.

    Best wishes,
    Dr. Majooly (Avian/Exotic Pract.)

    Hi All.


    Thank you Dr. Majooly for the useful information. I also tend to be confused between exotic pets and animals. Will keep this in mind.
