These veterinarians even have a strong interest and years of experience in avian and exotic animals; pocket pets, birds and even on lizards. Even try to provide alternative medicines to the animals and provide veterinary acupuncture treatments. In some cases these veterinarians even after the medical and surgical treatments refer certain long term cases to appropriate rehabilitators. They try to answer all the queries posted by the owners of the pets, patiently, as these veterinarians realize your pet is a beloved family member.
