According to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), more than 10 percent of US households in 2012 owned specialty and exotic pets. But most veterinary hospitals do not see animals other than cats and dogs.

At Animal House of Chicago, we see all kinds of animals — from dogs and cats to rabbits and hedgehogs to birds and reptiles. Although many exotic companion mammals may be cute and fuzzy, there are some challenges to caring for them.

Give us a call at (773) 878-8002 if you have questions about adopting and caring for an exotic pet.
