Exotics and Pocket Pets

Our veterinarians are experienced in providing specialized care and treatment for exotic and pocket pet companion animals, including ferrets, gerbils, guinea pigs, hamsters, iguanas, rabbits, and snakes. We understand their unique health needs and can provide diagnostic, therapeutic, and surgical services, as well as counseling on nutrition, behavior, and general care.
