For small mammals, we recommend complete physical exams every 6 to 12 months, yearly fecal examinations, routine blood testing, and vaccinations.

Our additional services include the following:

  • Hospitalization & Surgery
  • Spaying, Neutering, & De-scenting
  • Boarding
  • Grooming
  • Dentistry
  • Digital Radiography
  • Endoscopy

Sick Birds Need an Avian Veterinarian

Since sick birds usually hide symptoms of disease until the problem is very developed, routine examinations are very important. If you have a bird that is not used to being handled, an avian veterinarian can come to you at your home. Early detection is key, and that’s why we recommend physical examinations every 6 to 12 months, yearly fecal examinations, routine blood testing, and vaccinations. Wing, nail, and beak trimming can be effective in some cases. We also offer the following services:

  • DNA Sexing
  • Boarding
  • Microchip Identification
  • Hospitalization & Surgery
  • Grooming
  • Leg Band Removal
  • Day Care
  • Endoscopy
  • Ultrasound
  • Digital Radiography

Avoid Amphibian & Reptile Diseases

Parasites and infections are common problems for reptiles and amphibian pets. Most of these issues are a result of improper husbandry, food, housing, sanitation, temperature, humidity, and/or lighting. Our reptile veterinarians can give you more information on how to avoid these problems and create a comfortable environment for your reptile or amphibian friends. Our additional services include the following:

  • Hospitalization and surgery
  • Spaying and neutering
  • Sex determination
  • Boarding
  • Digital Radiography
  • Endoscopy
  • Ultrasound

Keep Your Fish Healthy & Happy

Poor water quality, unaddressed infections, or environmental factors are the leading causes of illness in fish. Sick fish usually exhibit physical signs such as redness or changes in the color of their skin and/or fins, they might stop eating, or they may separate themselves from other fish in their tank. If your fish is exhibiting any of these signs, transport them to our hospital in a bucket or ice chest. Don’t forget to bring a water sample in a separate container, so we can test it in our lab. We also offer the following services:

  • Physical examination
  • Water quality analysis
  • Skin, fin, and gill biopsy examination
  • Tank/Pond evaluation
  • Anesthesia and surgery
  • Digital Radiography
  • Medications for Fish
  • Hospitalization
  • Endoscopy
  • Ultrasound
