Croydon Pet Hospital is able to cater to a wide range of unusual and exotic pet species, and we are passionate about providing a high standard of care to our smaller animal friends.

Our exotics vet, Dr. Belinda Oppenheimer, is one of only a handful of veterinarians in the country to hold Membership with the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists in the field of Unusual Pets, indicating a high level of dedication and training in their care.
