service for exotics at LOCVS

Dr. Luthringer is highly skilled in the care of both native and non-native hoof-stock, and has training to provide the safest methods of chemical immobilization/sedation, herd health, treatment protocols, and illness. He has earned a great reputation for his exceptional work in this field, and routinely provides his services for some of the most extensive collections of deer and exotic game here in South Texas. 

Exotics & Deer Services

  • Herd Health Consultations – With experience and involvement with his own personal exotics, Dr. Luthringer can assist you with reaching your deer & exotic game management goals. From pen management to disease prevention he can customize a plan specific to your needs. Ranch visits are encouraged to continue and maintain your client/patient relationship.

  • In House & Outside Laboratory Services – Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) testing for both Ante-mortem and Post-mortem is just a fraction of the testing we can perform here at LOCVS. Blood work, fecal exam, and complete necropsy examinations are easily done in house. If we cannot run the test in house, we have the resources to send necessary samples to the TVMDL laborabory. 

  • Emergency Services - In the exotic industry, we know things don't always go according to plan. For those times, Dr. Luthringer will be available to use his expertise in anything from broken antler
