The only Hospital in Hong Kong offering full 24-hour emergency facilities for all pets (exotics, cats and dogs) including a veterinarian in Hospital 24 hours a day, and 24-hour nursing care.

Dear Valued Clients,

We are very sorry to announce that Island Exotics and The Lodge will be closed from April 26th, 2020 (the last day open will be Saturday, April 25, 2020). We hope this closure will be temporary, and we will announce further decisions later.

This is a very difficult decision but we have faced many problems over the last year. First, we had the protests, which hit us hard as our location is very close to the China Liason Office and now we are all being significantly affected by the COVID-19 virus. We also face huge difficulty in recruiting exotic veterinarians with the level of training and experience we need for treating your pets.

We would like to express our gratitude for your support and trust in Island Exotics over the years, and we wish you, your pets and your family all the best!

Our main hospital, Tai Wai Small Animal & Exotic Hospital will be open 24 hours every day, as usual, to help your pets.

For your information, Island Exotics and Tai Wai use the same computer system, so that, when your pet is visiting the vet at Tai Wai, we will be able to retrieve the previous medical record from Island Exotics with no problem.

Tel: 26871030

Yours sincerely,
The Island Exotics Team

  • Dear Dr Tiger and team, We would like to express our deepest appreciation and heartfelt thanks to your team. Don Don passed away peacefully on the first day of February 2016. Though is road was kind of rough at the end, he had had a valuable and 'tasty' 10 year time. Many thanks, as always for the professional care and support to this gentle little boy all along the way. With gratitude.

    - Don Don
