What Is a Pocket Pet?

As the name implies, a pocket pet refers to a small animal friend who could typically fit inside your pocket, such as rabbits, rats, hamsters, gerbils, guinea pigs, and many more. Pocket pets oftentimes live very different lifestyles than their larger counterparts and require a different approach to health care.

Our practice is devoted to providing quality examinations, procedures, and general health services specifically designed to assist your tiny loved ones with the extreme care and respect they deserve.

Why Does My Pocket Pet Require Vet Care?

Many types of diseases, infections, and afflictions commonly threatening the health and well-being of your small pets are easily preventable with the right measures. It's important to bring your small pets into our practice for regular checkups because pocket-sized pets have a weaker immune system than larger animals, making them more susceptible to infection and disease. Our skilled and knowledgeable veterinarians will tailor our exams and treatments to their unique situations and attributes.

Our Compassionate Pocket Pet Services

Smaller animals often don't receive the same level of professional care they deserve, yet they still have health care needs just like any other pets. Our seasoned veterinarians have years of experience handling a variety of animals across different species, breeds, lifestyles, sizes, and ages. We have the knowledge and gentle touch you can expect when handling small animals that have fragile bodies and are often prone to sudden panic.

Our practice features two different exam rooms, one specifically designed for larger pets and another for smaller animals. This helps your sweet and innocent pocket pets remain relaxed without the alarming sight of a larger animal, loud noises, or foreign smells that could cause them stress.

We will utilize our in-house technology to ensure efficient, safe, and focused care for all animals. Our goal is to build an extensive medical history for your pocket pet to further sharpen our diagnostics and treatment options, starting now and extending for years into the future.
