More and more people are looking for the company of exotic animals. But what happens if they get sick? The Marina Baixa Veterinary Hospital (HVMB) puts at your service a specialized clinic of medicine and surgery of exotic animals so your dear friends can lead a healthy and happy life.


A few decades ago it was quite rare to have animals at home. Some people had cats to hunt mice, others had dogs to watch the cattle and there were those who had horses or oxen to plow the field. Each one had its function and a task to fulfil, having a lazy pet was considered a luxury. Over time and rural exodus, cats, dogs, fish and birds were incorporated into the houses as pets. But nowadays it is common for people to have ferrets, hamsters, hedgehogs, squirrels, rabbits, snakes or even pigs in their homes. Like all living beings, they require care to be healthy, but not all veterinary centres are prepared to offer that service. At the Marina Baixa Veterinary Hospital they have the best specialized centre for medicine and surgery of exotic animals in Alicante.

Within the group of exotic pets is a large number of animals. In order to offer an adequate medical treatment for each of them a level of specialization and excellence that few veterinary clinics offer is required. The veterinarians of the Marina Baixa Veterinary Hospital point out that the diseases suffered by these animals differ considerably from the usual disorders in dogs and cats. Many of them have metabolic problems or nutritional imbalances whose solution is very different from the one applied in cats, for example. In addition, for a proper treatment of certain animals a very specialized material and specific facilities with lighting and temperature according to the need of each species are needed. The Marina Baixa Veterinary Hospital team is professionally trained in the management of these animals, as well as in their diagnosis of pathologies, biology, food and medical treatment.
