Tailored Wellness for Rabbits & Small Mammals

Rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, and other small mammals have become popular pets. But did you know that small mammals need some of the same routine wellness care that dogs and cats need? Do you know if your pet should be spayed or neutered, or if they require vaccinations to help maintain good health? Do you have questions about proper nutrition, cage cleaning, grooming, or any other aspects of care and husbandry?

Our staff of skilled professionals is well-trained in the care and husbandry of small mammals and can help keep your “pocket pet” looking and feeling great. Schedule a wellness visit today so we can perform a physical examination, answer any questions you may have about your pet, and discuss the best diet and at-home care to help ensure the health and longevity of your pet.

Avian Veterinary Care

Birds have many unique husbandry, healthcare, and nutritional needs, and ignoring them can significantly shorten their lifespan. Birds are also highly intelligent and require environmental enrichment to prevent boredom and behavior problems. We can help you understand your bird’s exact needs, and how to set up an environment to ensure their health and happiness. 

We also recommend regular wellness visits to evaluate your bird’s health and maintain routine grooming, such as beak, toenail, and wing trims. Birds are masters at hiding illness signs and often do not seem sick until they have an advanced health condition, which makes regular veterinary assessments a critical part of their care.

If your avian companion is due for a wellness visit or needs their beak, toenails, or wings trimmed, or if you have questions about their care, schedule an appointment with our knowledgeable team. Together, we can safeguard your feathered friend’s healthy future.

Veterinary Excellence for Reptiles and Amphibians

Snakes, iguanas, turtles, frogs, and other reptiles and amphibians are becoming increasingly popular as pets. Certain reptiles can live long, healthy lives as pets, but proper nutrition, care, and husbandry are essential.

This means that pet owners need the most accurate and reliable information available. For example, do you know the best things to feed your reptile, and how often? Do you know how much UV light is optimal, and which type? Should you get a heat rock? Do you know how to tell if your reptile is sick? Do you have questions about proper cage cleaning or any other aspects of care and husbandry?

Our skilled professionals are well-trained in caring for reptiles and amphibians and can fully inform you on how to keep your exotic pet looking and feeling great.
