Exotic Pet Medical Boarding in Charleston, SC
Your pet is in the best hands at our exotic pet medical 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 Charleston, 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 our veterinary facility is fully equipped to handle any health concern that may arise while your pet is in our care.

Exotic Small Mammal Boarding
In order for your small mammal to board with us, they need to be up to date with their wellness visits.
Within the last year:
- Comprehensive Blood Panel
Within the last 6 months:
- Wellness exam
- Fecal analysis
Rabbits must be fully vaccinated against RHDV-2 with annual boosters, and microchipped. Ferrets need to be up-to-date on their rabies and distemper vaccines.
If your pet received their vaccines and tests at a different clinic, please send your pet’s medical records to our facility at least a month before their boarding date. This gives us time to evaluate their records and ensure the other clinic’s protocol complies with our standards. We cannot keep personal items or carriers.
