 Only down side is they are expensive (but they are willing to work with a tight budget).
 The few bad reviews I've come across aren't about Dr. Emerson.

 I have been a very happy client of Best Care Pet Hospital for well over twenty years. Dr. Bosilevac is on board for my (hopefully) USDA Class C licensing and never hesitates to pull in whatever resources are necessary to work on a difficult case. He has an excellent working relationship with the Henry Doorly Zoo's veterinary staff.

he's very cooperative. I'm almost positive he will treat exotics from out of state.  He used to ask no questions...years ago. When I took sissy in the receptionist made copy of her papers and stuck in file. No other questions asked.

Comment from Ash (sybils message board (Member and Moderator)

She is the vet you want. The others are good with domestics, but she has specialized in exotics. She absolutely adores them too, and isn't patronizing at all. Very good with the animals and knows how to interact around them. Defers to you always and asks if certain things are okay. She treats a variety of wildlife and reptiles. She's seen my two foxes and has always been really good with them.

If you are planning on buying an exotic animal, PLEASE plan ahead.

1. Check with your state to see if that animal is legal.  (call your state DNR/Game    Commission)

2. Check with your local area to make sure they are legal (city, township, county)

If you currently own a legal exotic animal  and need a vet

 Call your Veterinarian and ask if they would treat (whatever animal you have)

Another option is to call the closest zoo and ask them who they use for a veterinarian.

Remember, most veterinarians  WILL NOT treat illegal animals.

otherwise, you will have more problems than you bargain for.
