Pender Exotics Veterinary Centre
Birds, reptiles, guinea pigs, rabbits, rats, snakes and ferrets are all brought to Pender Exotics Veterinary Centre to receive the best in exotic veterinary services and care from our specially trained exotics veterinarians and technicians. Founded in 1999 as a department of Pender Veterinary Centre, Pender Exotics and its array of exotic veterinary services have grown with the increasing popularity of exotic pets. Your reptiles, birds, small mammals, or fish may be a bit more unique and unusual than the cats and dogs your neighbors have, but that doesn’t mean we can’t give them the highest standard of exotic veterinary care!
