As a veterinarian, Dr. McLeod treated a variety of animals, but caring for her own truly helped her understand the unique needs of exotic pets. Over the years, she has owned a hedgehog, wolfdog, rabbit, cockatiel, fancy mice, a chinchilla, rats, hermit crabs, fire bellied newts, fiddler crabs, many fish, and several dogs.
