Pocket Pets

 

These little guys need just as much love and attention.   Whether you have a rat, rabbit, guinea pig, bird or other special critter, we can provide them with the same standard of healthcare as our other patients.  These services include desexing, preventative disease treatment and rat or rabbit dental care. Our vets have passion for all creatures great and small!
