Here For You
“Hospice Care focuses on providing the best quality of life possible for a pet with a terminal disease or condition until the pet dies or is euthanized. Hospice care also helps you by providing you with time to adjust to the coming loss of your companion. The care is tailored to the needs of both you and your pet.”
Rabbits & Small Mammals
Rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, and other small mammals have become popular pets as increasing numbers of pet owners come to understand the unique bond that can form with one of these special creatures. 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? Do you know if any vaccinations are recommended 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 give you the information you need to keep your “pocket pet” looking and feeling great.
Why not call to schedule a wellness visit? We can perform a physical examination, answer any questions you may have about your pet, and discuss whether any changes in diet or at-home care are recommended to help ensure the health and longevity of your pet.
Birds have many unique husbandry and health care needs. For example, do you know the best food to feed your bird? Many owners unknowingly feed a diet deficient in essential nutrients that can significantly shorten their bird’s lifespan. Birds are also highly intelligent, and require environmental enrichment to prevent boredom and behavior problems. We will help you understand your bird’s exact needs, and how to set up an environment to ensure good health and happiness. Additionally, regular wellness visits, to evaluate your bird’s health and maintain routine grooming, such as beak, toenail, and wing trims, are important. 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.
Acute injuries such as bone fractures

Snakes, iguanas, turtles, and other reptiles 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 to help ensure the health and well- being of their pet. For example, did you know that 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 staff of skilled professionals is well trained in the care and husbandry of reptiles and can give you the information you need to keep your exotic pet looking and feeling great.
