Exotic Pets Services in Halifax, Nova Scotia

At Fairview Animal Hospital, we refer to reptiles as exotic pets. These specialized creatures require particular living conditions to be at their healthiest, and regular examinations are recommended.

What type of exotic pets do you service?


Dr. Dibblee examines snakes such as boa constrictors, corn snakes, and ball pythons. She also treats Bearded Dragons which have recently gained popularity, as well as leopard geckos, turtles, and a variety of other reptiles. Also discussed at the time of the exam is the husbandry as each reptile has particular thermal regulations, diet, and cage set up requirements.

What is the cost of getting my exotic pet seen?


For pricing, please contact the hospital and we will be happy to provide you with a quote.
