Species Served

We provide emergency and urgent care for small animals, including most exotic pets. We care for birds, rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, chinchillas, sugar gliders, rats, hamsters, gerbils, hedgehogs, pot-bellied pigs, lizards, and snakes. Please call us if your pet is not on this list. Small exotic pets can become critical more quickly, so contact us right away if your pet is not acting normally.
