Specialized Services

ULTRASOUND AND RADIOGRAPHY

Our hospital is designed to offer the very best care for your bird, or exotic pet.  Diagnostic imaging is a very important tool in aiding our doctors in caring for your pet.  Our digital x-ray and ultrasound services can quickly reveal problems within your pet that the standard physical examination may not.  

MEDICATION AND SUPPLEMENTS

The medications that we have at our hospital are formulated specifically for your animal’s condition and needs. Most of the drugs we use for your small pet require that we reformulate, or compound before administration.  Because most of our medications require compounding, preparing medications can be lengthier than you may be used to.  Please allow extra time for our staff to prepare your pet's medicines and call ahead for refills when possible.  

Our doctors also rely on specialized herbal supplements and formulas, some of which are unique to our practice.  These supplements can aid in your pet's organ-specific issues, help to relieve grief, ease pain, or act as an anti-viral, or anti-bacterial.  We pride ourselves on providing current herbal remedies for your pet.  

GROOMING/TRIMMING

Our practice offers a variety of trimming needs for various species.  Trimming services offered include; wing nail and beak trimming for birds, beak and nail trimming for turtles and tortoises, hoof and tusk trimming for pigs, and nail trimming for other small animal patients.  It is important that a trained professional performs trims, especially on birds.  Improper trimming of feathers can result in blood loss and severe injury from the inability to land.  It is paramount that you do not attempt to trim your pet bird at home.    

 

HOSPITALIZATION

Severely, or chronically ill patients may sometimes require hospitalization at our practice.  We have an incubation unit with temperature and oxygenation control.  Sick birds and reptiles may require that medication and food be gavage fed to them multiple times a day.  Our staff is adequately trained to care for your pet, keep you up to date on their progress, and answer any questions you may have along the way.  Your pet is our top priority.    

 

BOARDING

We offer boarding for birds, reptiles, and small mammals.  If your pet stays with us, you can rest assured that any medication and/ or specialized dietary needs will be met. 

Ferrets must be up to date on distemper and rabies vaccinations as well as their yearly exam.  Rabbits, guinea pigs and other small mammals do not require any vaccinations, but they must have had an exam within the last year. We provide pellets, timothy hay, and fresh greens, however feel welcome to bring any favorite toys or food they may like with you.

Birds must have had an exam within 6 months, as well as gram stains and a single psittacosis test prior to boarding. Please allow at least 7 days in advance due to the time required for test results to be obtained.

While your pet is staying with us we would be happy to provide any re-check examinations, vaccinations, wing, nail and beak trimming, or any medical treatment your pet may need.
