Our Exotic Animal Patients

What sets our veterinary services and animal hospital from the other animal hospitals in NJ is our experience and knowledge with non-traditional pets. We are an exotic animal veterinarian—dedicated to providing compassionate care for all exotic animal pets.

At Nautilus Avian and Exotic Veterinary Specialists (NAEVS)—before NAEVS became a top-notch vet for exotic animals—it took years of veterinary services experience—such as handling, diagnosing, and treating exotic animals.

Although we are veterinary specialists in NJ—not all of our exotic animal pets patients come from New Jersey—some of our patients come from outside NJ, too.

NAEVS have the ability to make an accurate and quick diagnosis, offer better treatment options, and better predict the outcome.

Your exotic vet animal hospital visit with Nautilus Avian and Exotic Veterinary include an overall review of diet—caging at home and an overall physical and mental examination of your pet.

NAEVS—a top-notch vet for exotic pets provides you recommendations if needed and provides you with your exotic animal pets information handouts specific to their situation.

There are some cases that require extensive consultation for specific issues like behavioral problems. But there’s no need to worry because we provide such veterinary services.
