oakland’s exotic pet care services

specialized exotic pet care from the hands of an experienced veterinary technician

There’s no doubt about it. Exotic pets are unique. That’s why specialized care is so important!


As a Registered Veterinary Technician, I am trained in the proper care of a vast variety of exotic pets. Plus, I have the ability to notice subtle signs of illness or discomfort that a friend or neighbor might not notice.


Next time you’re away, trust Fur And Feather Pet Care to deliver you the peace of mind you deserve!


Animals we care for: All types of birds, from parrots to backyard chickens, reptiles, amphibians, fish, pocket pets like rabbits, guinea pigs, rats and ferrets, and invertebrates (yes, even tarantulas!).

p.s. we also offer nail trims!

Nail trims are available for existing pet sitting clients, and during a pet sitting visit or boarding only. I can do nail trims for cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, birds, and most lizards. For your pet's safety, I can only trim nails if the pet is tolerating it well, and cannot guarantee that the trim will be completed if the pet gets overly stressed or aggressive.


$25 per pet, no matter the species

"if you took michelle and put her in a forest, within 5 minutes you'd witness a scene out of snow white, where the woodland creatures would flock to her and sing sweet songs of adoration in her ear. she really understands animals and cares about taking good care of them for you while you're away."
