Woodland Animal Hospital is staffed with experienced exotic vets in Locust Grove, GA who can treat a variety of species including rabbits and other small mammals, birds, and reptiles. Exotic pets have many unique needs but, like dogs and cats, can conceal pain and sickness. It is important that we see your exotic pet approximately every 6 months for a checkup, so we can make sure they are staying healthy and to provide treatment if an underlying medical issue is discovered.
Your pet’s wellness and longevity depend on more than food, water, and shelter.

Disease Prevention Can Increase Your Exotic Pet’s Lifespan
Preventing disease from ever developing in your exotic pet is our highest priority. With semiannual exams, we can stay on top of any changes in their condition and offer timely care should a problem arise. At Woodland Animal Hospital, we are able to provide these services to evaluate your pet’s health and screen for disease:
- Physical examinations
- Digital X-ray
- Blood work
Small mammals, birds, and reptiles are complex creatures with specific wellness needs. A strong, healthy foundation and regular vet visits can help them thrive. Quality nutrition is essential to your pet’s health and wellness, but there are many other important factors that play a role as well, including:
- Environment (lighting, temperature, noise)
- Habitat (enclosure, substrate, water quality)
- Proper handling/socialization
- Play and enrichment
All of these things contribute to your pet’s overall health and quality of life. One of our exotic vets in Locust Grove can work with you to ensure your rabbit, bird, or reptile is being cared for properly and receiving attention and enrichment to keep them not just healthy, but happy, too!
Our hospital is open 24 hours for your convenience. If your exotic pet needs to see a vet, give us a call at (770) 467-3140.
