Exotics Referrals

Bearded Dragon We have welcomed exotic pets and their owners to Sandhole for over fifteen years now, both as first opinion patients and also as referral cases from other practices.

Each unique individual is looked after by our exotics vet or Qualified Veterinary Nurse (both of whom are currently studying towards additional certificates in exotic medicine).

African Grey Our dedicated exotics ward is located away from the noise of other in-patients and can house exotic pets from the smallest of tortoises to the largest of snakes. We have also invested in a wide range of equipment specifically for exotics, including special anaesthesia (sevoflurane).

You can be assured that your reptilian, amphibious and avian friends are always in safe hands at Sandhole!

"Hello if you are about to visit Sandhole for the first time with an exotic pet!
As you know, these special creatures require an individual approach. To help us tailor our care and advice to your pet's specific needs and lifestyle, we would be grateful if you could take a few moments to complete the short questionnaire below.
Please download the appropriate version (reptile or avian) and either e-mail it to us at [email protected] or bring it with you on the day of your appointment.
We look forward to meeting you and your exotic pet very soon!"
