Exotic Pet Boarding

We are one of the few facilities which will care for your exotic pet while you are away.  We board all exotic pets and our team members love and have experience in the field of exotic animal care.

Our team at Oak Park Animal Hospital attend to all your pets needs while you are away, making sure your pet feels relaxed and loved in their new temporary surroundings.  Having the ability to leave your pet with our experienced team of doctors and staff will not only give you peace of mind, but also will make for a more pleasant and less stressful experience for your pet.

It is our intention for you to enjoy your vacation or take care of business without worrying about your pet.  We understand that you will miss them, and that they will miss you; we strive to make your time away from each other as pleasant and stress free as we can.  We want your pets to feel like this is their “home away from home!”

Requirements

All exotic pets must be current on an annual examination performed by one of our veterinarians and a fecal screening.  Since there are so many different housing requirements for each type of exotic pet, we ask that you bring your exotic pet in their housing.  This not only ensures that we can care for your pet with the proper environment, but it will also decrease their stress level since their habitat has not been altered. Please also bring their personalized food with instructions for their feeding care.
