Birds and exotic pets are masters at hiding signs of illness. Because many are prey species, they are "programmed" to hide injury or illness to prevent predators from targeting them. They can be critically ill before their owner realizes that they are sick, which is why it is important to bring your exotic pet to Animal House of Chicago for annual veterinary visits to detect any problems.

As part of a comprehensive exam, our experienced doctors and staff will assess and discuss husbandry, diet and other aspects of pet care. We will provide current information on relevant topics concerning your specific species of exotic pet.

If you are concerned or worried about any abnormality in your pet, please call immediately for an appointment.
