Exotic Pet Service at Evergreen Animal Hospital in Gig Harbor, WA

We are excited to begin offering exotic pet care and services. Dr. Marks is now seeing exotic pocket pets (including rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, rats, etc.) for preventative care,​ initial diagnostics, and treatment of numerous medical conditions.

Understanding the Service

Unfortunately, we are currently unable to see avian or reptile patients (but hope this may change in the future). This is a brand-new endeavor for our hospital and Dr. Marks is excited to help other types of furry friends with the same standards of care and compassion as we have been showing cats and dogs for years.

Our Exotic Pet Service is tailored to address the unique healthcare requirements of small mammals. Dr. Marks has a profound understanding of the diverse needs of exotic pets, ensuring that each receives the specialized care they deserve.

When to Seek Our Services

Dr. Marks also treats Savannah cats. The hospital and veterinary staff are equipped to offer these exotic cats all the same services as domestic house cats including spay and neuter surgeries.

At this time, Dr. Marks is our ONLY veterinarian seeing exotic pets. Therefore, we do not always have a veterinarian on premises that is able to discuss or treat these special cases. If your pet is experiencing an urgent or emergency medical condition, please reach out to one of the following facilities:

All Creatures Animal Hospital in Bremerton – 360-377-3801
Blue Pearl Pet Hospital in Tacoma/Lakewood – 253-474-0791
Evergreen Avian and Exotic Animal Hospital in Tacoma – 253-564-4425
