Exotic Pet Services in Red Deer, Alberta

Exotic pets (reptiles) can be tricky to keep in captivity. They require different sources of light (for heat and for UVB), adequate habitats to keep them healthy in mind and body, proper nutrition and many other factors. The most common issue seen in reptiles is nutrition deficiencies, leading to bone and muscle problems, which can be difficult to treat if not recognized early. Please contact the staff at Lomsnes Veterinary if you have any questions regarding the care of your reptile.

    COVID-19: Additional measures we are taking

    Dear Clients,

    Lomsnes Veterinary Hospital is committed to doing everything possible to combat the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. Due to the close contact that our work requires, we have taken additional measures to protect you and our team while providing care for your furry family members.

    As part of this commitment, effective immediately, Lomsnes Veterinary Hospital will be instituting the following precautionary protocols to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission.

    1. For the safety of yourself, our staff, and the community, our front door is locked, and clients will not be allowed to enter the building.

    2. We are still open, with the following hours: Monday to Friday 8:00 am - 5:00 pm and Saturdays 9:00 am - 1:00 pm.

    3. We will be limiting our appointments to emergencies, pets in need of a medical appointment and time-sensitive puppy/kitten vaccinations. All other services will be scheduled for a later time. During these appointments, we still ask that clients remain in their vehicle, and we will transport your pet in and out of the vehicle. The veterinarian will discuss your pet's appointment over the phone.

    4. For food and medication orders, please call ahead of time, and we will get your order ready. We are able to take your credit card over the phone or we have a portable debit/credit machine for you to use in the parking lot. We are not accepting cash.

    5. When you arrive, please stay in your vehicle in our parking lot and call 403-342-6040, and we'll come to you.

    Thank you for helping us be diligent for everyone's safety. As we have heard from all levels of government, the situation is fluid, and any updates will be provided as changes occur.

    Your dedicated team at Lomsnes Veterinary Hospital
