Exotic companion mammals (which includes rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, gerbils, hamsters, mice, hedgehogs, and sugar gliders) are quickly growing in popularity, and they need vet care just like our larger companion animals do. The services we offer include:

  • Routine wellness care, including vaccinations for ferrets
  • Ill pet care, such as management of GI stasis, head tilt, mite infestations, nutritional deficiencies, and infectious disease
  • Full labratory diagnostic services through Avian and Exotic Animal Clin Path Labs and Idexx Labs
  • Digital radiography
  • Surgical services such as routine spay and neuter procedures, mass removals, and wound care
  • Laser therapy for management of bumblefoot
  • Dental care for ferrets, including intraoral radiographs and tooth extractions
  • Dental care for rabbits, and rodents, including skull radiographs, incisor trimming, shortening of cheek teeth, and simple extractions
  • Deslorelin implants for management of adrenal disease in ferrets
