EXAM – A physical exam recommended twice a year

INTESTINAL PARASITES can be found in your pocket pet. Some of these parasites can be transmitted to humans. Your pet should be checked and de-wormed on each year for intestinal parasites. This is achieved by microscopic examination of a fresh stool sample.

WELLNESS BLOODWORK and URINALYSIS – recommended once a year. (Urinalysis for Ferrets, Rabbits and Guinea Pigs only)

OVARIOHYSTERECTOMY (spaying) of females or CASTRATION (neutering) of males for some pets such as Ferrets, Rabbits, Rodents, Guinea Pigs or Pigs.

Ferrets should also be vaccinated for Rabies and Distemper. These pets are very prone to vaccine reactions so we recommend splitting vaccines up over a number of visits. Heartworm prevention and flea/tick control are also recommended for ferrets. Please ask a staff member for more details.
