Exotic Pet Boarding in Mount Pleasant, SC

Your pet is in the best hands at our exotic pet boarding facility, where our experienced staff cater to their individual needs and offer them all the comforts of home. Birds and other exotics require a lot of time and attention that most pet sitters and other facilities cannot provide. Here in Mount Pleasant, we offer exotic boarding in a facility that is specially designed for them.

All boarding guests receive regular feedings with their normal diet, along with healthy treats and daily bathing or soaking as appropriate. We are also able to accommodate our boarders’ specialized habitat needs with climate-controlled enclosures and UV lighting. Furthermore, our staff members are trained to recognize subtle changes in appetite, activity level, or elimination, and we are fully equipped to handle any health concern that may arise while your pet is in our care.

See below for species-specific boarding information.

If your bird’s testing was done at another clinic, you will need to send their health records to our facility at least 1 month before their boarding date. This gives us time to evaluate your pet’s record to ensure their testing was done to our standards.
