Exotic Animal Servives




Request an Appointment

Do you have a bird, hamster, gerbil, ferret, reptile or other exotic animal? Not sure if a
veterinarian can provide care for your particular type of exotic pet? Then we invite you to speak with our veterinarians and support team at Heineke Veterinary Hospital in Alexandria, KY. for more information. Chances are, our animal hospital will be able to provide you and your beloved pet with the quality exotic pet care they need and deserve. Dr. Barry Heineke has over 20 years of exotic animal experience. What he has found throughout the years is that treating exotic pets is somewhat of a specialized area and each exotic pet requires a slightly different set of knowledge, research, skills, equipment and veterinary techniques.

That’s exactly what you can count on us to provide for you and your exotic pet when you walk through the doors of Heineke Veterinary Hospital. We are familiar with exotics and will spend a good deal of time discussing the care of your particular exotic pet, as many problems with exotic pets are related to improper diet or other aspects of care. Dr. Heineke will study and assess your pet to fully understand what may be ailing your exotic pet. We take great pride in communicating and educating all of our clients and do the same with our exotic pet owners. As soon as you enter the doors of Heineke Veterinary Hospital we make sure the veterinary experience is a fun and enjoyable one where you leave feeling like you learned something to better equip you as a pet owner.

Finding the right veterinarian can be a daunting task and may even not seem that important when your pet is healthy, but the effort will be well worth it if your pet should fall ill! We are here anytime to assist you and your exotic pet.
