Exotic Pets

We have a fully equipped Exotics clinic at Thurlby

We have a fully equipped Exotics clinic at Thurlby with its own waiting and consulting rooms and hospital with five different wards designed to cater for these patients' often very individual needs. Within these wards there is appropriate housing including vivariums for different species of reptiles and heated tortoise tables as well as a range of enclosures for birds and small mammals with species specific environmental enrichment.
