Exotic & Pocket Pets

Exotic Pet Care

At My Vet Animal Hospital, our team is trained to see more than just cats and dogs!

Before choosing a small mammal as a pocket pet, it’s important to do as much research as possible. These animals have many different needs than cats and dogs, and it’s important to plan for those needs.

Our team is prepared to service your exotic pets including:

  • Rabbits
  • Ferrets
  • Guinea pigs
  • Chinchillas
  • And other pocket pets!

Please note, we do not see birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, arachnids, or any venomous/ poisonous pet. If you are uncertain if we are able to provide care to your exotic pet, please contact our clinic.

Specialty Services for your exotic pets

Regardless of species, we recommend annual wellness exams for every patient. Exotic pet care exams include a complete health check, fecal test, and conversation regarding husbandry, nutrition, handling, habitat, and other factors that determine their quality of life. If you notice any sign of disease or illness in your pet, please bring it to our attention immediately. What appears to be a minor infection, or a small cold can escalate very quickly.

Additional exotic pet services we offer include:

  • Spaying/neutering for rabbits and guinea pigs
  • Dentistry for rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, rats, and chinchillas
  • Adrenal gland implants for ferrets
  • Mass removals
  • Blood testing and X-rays
  • Teeth trims for rabbits and guinea pigs
  • Nail trims for small mammals
  • Care for sick and/or injured pets
