Does Seeing an Exotic Pet Fill you With Fear
As a veterinarian, we are sometimes presented with cases that are a little outside of our comfort zone and for many, exotic animals are WAY outside of that! Fear not, this webinar is for you! We aim to refresh your memory regarding the common disease presentations of popular pocket pets, so you can do your best to help these little patients in an emergency.
