Wellness Care

Wellness/preventative care is a critical component to keeping your animal happy and comfortable. Often times animals hide their illnesses until it is too late, which makes routine physical examinations critical. By being able to identify and correct husbandry problems and find signs of early illness, we can help to prevent and treat problems earlier for your pet. All too often we see pocket pets after they have been ill for weeks or months which makes treating and “fixing” them much more difficult. Earlier detection means a healthier and happier pet!

Preventative care also includes:

  • immunizations for species requiring vaccinations
  • deworming
  • consultations on correct husbandry and diet for your exotic pet
