Pet Care for:
Exotic & Small Pets

All Pets Animal Hospital & 24-Hour Emergency Care understands the unique needs of exotic pets and the difficulty owners can have finding veterinarians who will care for them. We welcome all types of exotic pets, from small mammals to birds and reptiles, and we have treated a wide variety of species.

Rough Day

Many of the health issues that arise in exotic pets can be due to their unique husbandry needs. When caring for an exotic pet, it is vital that the owner research the proper environment and diet for the pet. Clients can find links to many useful websites with a variety of exotic species information on our helpful links page. Please call us to discuss any specific questions you have about the care of your pet.

Some of the many types of exotic pets we treat include:

  • Birds—All species
  • Mammals—Pet pigs, rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, mice, rats, hamsters, gerbils, sugar gliders, hedgehogs, and others
  • Reptiles and amphibians—Non-venomous snakes, lizards, turtles, tortoises, and others
  • 4H and FFA animals—Cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, chickens, and rabbits

All Pets Animal Hospital & 24-Hour Emergency Care recommends semi-annual physical exams for most exotic pets. As with dogs and cats, exotic pets benefit from physical exams for early detection of health issues. Our experienced veterinarians can track a pet’s baseline vital statistics and detect if changes in those vitals indicate a health issue that should be followed up on.

Our doctors also maintain excellent relations with experts in a variety of exotic pet fields so that, if a species they are not familiar with presents with an unusual condition or if an owner has questions that we do not know the answers to, we have the resources available to find that information for them.

People in Katy sometimes find injured wildlife and wonder where to turn. We partner with the Texas Wildlife Rehab Coalition and the Houston Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in cases of injured wildlife, as there are special considerations to take into account when dealing with wild species.

If you have any questions about your exotic pet, please feel free to contact us and speak with one of our technicians or veterinarians.

What Our Clients Are Saying:

Dr. Pat helped out a lot when 1 of the puppies we got was sick. He is very kind and treats your pet as he would his own. He is fantastic at what he does. He also has a wonderful staff as well.
Dan & Connie Hofer
We have received excellent care and service for our Westie from All Pets Animal Hospital for eight years and counting. We also use them for boarding when we go on vacation as our dog receives such loving care from the entire staff that she returns home like she has never been gone. A "five out of five stars" rating with a "highly recommend" from us.
Denny & Cheryl Daniels
Dr. Choyce's expert and professional approach are exceptional. I would recommend All Pets Animal Hospital and its services and personnel to any caring pet owner.
Sara Chadwick
I liked the level of compassion shown toward our pets and the office's understanding of how much the pets mean to their owners. I particularly enjoyed being able to observe the surgical procedure and appreciated the commentary relative to any milestones during the process. Dr. Choyce and his group treated our pets as if she were one of their own dogs.
