Small Mammals

Rabbits and pocket pets such as hamsters, guinea pigs, and ferrets might not require much outdoor exercise, but they still have the potential to get diseases. And, just like pet dogs and cats, your rabbit and pocket pet needs ongoing veterinary care, balanced nutrition, human interaction, and appropriate management of his/her environment.

We provide specialized veterinary services for most exotic and pocket pets, including:

  • Ferrets
  • Gerbils
  • Guinea Pigs
  • Hamsters
  • Hedgehogs
  • Mice
  • Rats
  • Chinchillas
  • Sugar Gliders

Our specialized veterinary care for these types of pets includes:

  • Annual wellness physical examinations
  • Parasite treatment and control
  • Diagnostic testing, such as x-rays, blood tests, skin scrapings, and biopsy of growths
  • Surgeries for spay, neuter, growth removal and fractures
  • Medications and supplements tailored to the needs of your pocket pet
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Behavioral counseling

Small mammals with a strong veterinarian-patient relationship will benefit from better overall health and improved disease control.  We encourage small mammal pet parents to establish a relationship with us early in their pet’s life, before an emergency necessitates a visit.  We have an experienced exotic veterinarian on call 7 days a week for small mammal, avian and exotic pets established with us as clients. As part of our lifetime commitment to our established small mammal pet parents, in the evenings and on Saturday and Sunday we prioritize established small mammal pet patients if capabilities are limited.  Therefore, establishing and maintaining the relationship with us is important for your small mammal pet.
