Animals we can help

Besides the obvious pets Cats, Dogs, Rabbits and Birds we have developed experience with more exotic species which you will be surprised to know are quite common in the UAE.

Some examples include lions, tigers, cheetahs, other cats, numerous reptiles such as snakes, turtles, terrapins, tortoises and iguanas to name but a few. It is always best to call ahead to make sure we can treat your pet. If we can’t we will more than likely be able to point you in the right direction.

Avian Medicine and Surgery

Psittacines such as African Grays, Cockatoos and Budgerigars are the most common birds seen in our practice, and we have considerable experience with these. We recommend and stock "Harrison’s" avian diets for optimum nutrition. Many problems in psittacines seen here are related to poor quality feeding, particularly with overuse of sunflower seeds.

Exotic Species Notice

The United Arab Emirates subscribes to the voluntary code of practice governing the movement of endangered species, CITES. Movement of certain species is restricted and special permission may be required. This can also apply to pet birds - many psittaccine species are on the CITES lists.

A number of parrot species are regarded as endangered and international transport of them may be restricted. You may not be allowed to take the African Gray bought from a local souk (market) back to your home country without special permission. Click here to read more articles on Exotic Species in the UAE.
