EXOTIC PETS

Here at Creature Comforts Animal Hospital, we serve a large variety of pets.

It can be difficult to find veterinarians who are knowledgeable with the variety of exotic animals now kept as pets. Look no further, we can care for the majority of species kept as pets. Many exotic species are vastly different from dogs and cats medically, and someone familiar with them is important both when they are sick and well. Many of the illnesses seen in these special pets come from the environment or diet not being correct. Unfortunately, often the pet store fails to appropriately educate a new owner on how to care for their new pet correctly. If your pet is well, bring it in for a check up today and we can help ensure your pet has everything it needs to thrive.

At Creature Comforts, we have specialized equipment just for our exotic patients. From an anesthetic machine designed solely for our tiniest of patients to habitats that provide appropriate heating and lighting, your pet will be cared for with the special needs of your pet in mind. We stock a variety of medicine just for exotics, including multiple medical treatment options for ferrets with adrenal disease. We are also experienced at removing adrenal tumors and insulinomas surgically.

We work with most exotic species. Whether you have a small mammal, a reptile, or a farm pet (including pot bellied pigs, sheep, and goats), we can care for your pet. We are currently the veterinarian for the Desert Tortoise Group as well as working with the US Fish and Wildlife Services and their Desert Tortoise population.

    I took advantage of CREATURE COMFORTS free initial exam for my great Dane. They all were most gracious with their time. The doc sat down in the exam room with me and had a conversation about Lucky....I feel very comfortable with the staff and Dr.Tompkins. I've had great Danes for 50 years. Doc was happy to "discuss" care for lucky with me instead of "dictating" a plan. She took my experience to heart and nodded appropriately to the knowledge "I bring to the table." Their free initial exam came right when I was actively looking for a new vet. If I hadn't been looking I would have passed on the offer. Timing was just great, but even if you aren't looking for a new doctor, I recommend you meet & greet with them. I'm way down in Henderson, but I like them so much I will make the drive. After 50 years you can imagine how "jaded" I am about health care for my great danes.....CREATURE COMFORTS happily exceeded my expectations!🐕👌🐶

    Dr. Paul is my favorite! She performed two surgeries on me, saw me at minimum of once a month during my puppy years (hey, it doesn't have to edible for me to consume it) and was very compassionate and concerned with pain management.

    Dr. Paul understood my breed (min-pin) and explained in depth how my personality is a factor in my unhealthy habits (like eating princess rings, rubber bands, whoopee cushions). She made sure, in spite of my tenacious breed that I was able to "just rest."

    She has always gone above and beyond explaining the options available and making sure the best possible solution was opted for, both cost effectively and health wise.

    We love Creature Comforts. They are amazing with our dogs and we love that they are always smiling and happy. They really enjoy what they do, and that shows in the care they give.

    Everyone here is very nice and helpful and very empathetic and compassionate. Dr Espinoza and Dr Paul are really just very caring and informative and take the time to explain. All the vets are prob as nice, I just have only been with these two with my older dog and now our new, sickly puppy. They offer an affordable wellness plan for the dogs that cover most basic needs. We did end up paying a bit out of pocket for the sick puppy, up and above that, but it was not at all anymore pricey then any vet anywhere else. The place is clean and has most all you’ll need to get you going . The front office staff is super nice . If I had to complain, then the only complaint I would have (& have voiced to them), is that getting them on the phone is hard. The hold time is never under 5 min, and I’ve been on hold sometimes 20 minutes and then disconnected.. either that or having to leave a message with a service and sometimes not getting the follow up. So for that I wish they had a dedicated receptionist cause the staff is always super busy checking in or out animals, (as should be their priority). They are overall one of the best vet offices we’ve gone to and i’m very happy with their level of care. Even after my last sick puppy visit,Dr Paul made a follow up call... that truly made me feel so valued as a client!
