Dr. Martin has almost 40 years of experience treating small mammals, and she will welcome your small pet with compassion, care and respect. Small mammals are all uniquely different from each other, and certainly very different from cats and dogs! Whether you are a new pet owner or a seasoned pro, we look forward to providing all your small mammal care needs.
Our small mammal services include:
- Complete Physical Exams: The wellness exam is the key to keeping all types of pets healthy. Not only do these exams enable us to catch small problems before they become big problems, they also give us an opportunity to review the housing and dietary requirements for your special pet.
- Dietary Evaluation: A good diet can literally mean the difference between life and death for all animals. A major part of our exotic pet care is nutritional counseling to keep pets healthy.
- Diagnostic Tests: Procedures such as blood work and X-rays are used when necessary to screen for illnesses to aid us in instituting the appropriate care.
- Surgical Procedures: We perform routine and emergency surgeries for our small mammal patients. Many small mammals in home environments are much more content after they have been spayed or neutered.
Our goal for small mammals is to give you the knowledge you need to help your pet live longer and be healthier. Dr. Martin treats most species of small mammals, including:
- Guinea pigs
