I recommend Dr. Mike Sheffield for his caring professionalism he has demonstrated since a young age. I am amazed at his broad range of knowledge of animals from small domestics to large exotics.

Exotic Pet Nutrition and Dental Care

The cornerstone of any pet’s health is nutrition. Making sure your pet receives a balanced, nutritious diet is paramount. Our clinic offers the Zupreem line of exotic pet foods, which offers high-quality diets to various species, including pocket pets and birds. A high-quality food that is tailored to your pet’s needs can prevent the development of various diseases. For some pets, such as rabbits, guinea pigs, and gerbils, a proper diet can also play a key role in dental care and prevent tooth overgrowth and other problems.

For expert care recommendations for your exotic pet, schedule an appointment with us by calling (512) 847-5630 or request an appointment online.

Bird Care

Wimberley Veterinary Clinic provides services for all manner of birds, from budgies to free-range chickens. While not the most typical of pets, birds are no less deserving of lifelong veterinary care from a team that understands their unique needs, especially their nutrition, habitation, and in some cases, reproduction. If you keep chickens, then you’ll want to find a veterinarian who can help them stay healthy and ensure maximum egg production for your flock.

Services we generally provide for our bird patients include:

  • Evaluation of diet and habitat
  • Radiology
  • Laboratory testing and evaluation
  • DNA sex determination
  • Soft tissue and orthopedic surgery
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Flock health evaluations (for poultry)
  • Microchipping
  • Nail, beak, and wing trims (for caged birds)
