We offer wellness exams, behavioral and dietary consultations, diagnostic testing, and tips on proper husbandry and handling. We recommend you bring your pet in every 6-12 months for preventative care and examination.
Reptiles and amphibians have become popular pets because they are unique and especially engaging but these pets are extra particular in their needs. If you are new to owning and caring for reptiles and amphibians, you should schedule a consultation with your vet soon after bringing your new pet home to ensure they receive the best care possible.
Pocket pets are smaller household pets which include guinea pigs, hamsters, mice, rats, gerbils, and hedgehogs. Every pocket pet is unique with different care and treatment requirements. Our veterinarians are experts in keeping your furry friend healthy. We can give you helpful tips for safely and comfortably handling your pet, as well as advise you about a proper diet, toys and cage accessories, and general maintenance.
Gerbils, guinea pigs, and hamsters have teeth that grow continuously throughout their lifespan, and often require trimming. Certain chew toys can help keep the teeth worn down and healthy.
We also offer treatment for small animals suffering from parasite infestation. Parasites such as lice, mites, and fleas are common in our small, furry friends.
Note: Many pet stores offer a warranty with a 2-3 week return period. We recommend scheduling a veterinary exam within that time frame.
For our flying friends, we offer many different veterinary services, including wellness exams, parasite, bacteria or yeast examinations, blood tests, behavioral and dietary consultations, and grooming & wing trimming. We recommend that you bring your bird in for a wellness exam every 6-12 months; birds are proud creatures and often mask illnesses until it is far too late.
Other services offered for exotic pets include:
Parasite Screening / Fecal Exam
Oral / Dental Exam
Nail, Beak, and Wing Trims
For new bird owners, we recommend having a full examination done before taking your new pet home. Birds who have had recent contact with other birds in a pet store are far more likely to be infected with contagious diseases, parasites or bacteria.
