ZooMED Animal Care

ZooMED Animal Medicine, also known as Zoological Companion Medicine (ZooMED), is the medical care and treatment of zoological companion patients, or ZooMED. This is a discipline that requires a broad and extensive depth of knowledge.

Our team treats the following ZooMED pets: [rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, gerbils, and hedgehogs].

We understand that zoological companion patients are unique and delicate. Their anatomy, physiology, and behavior is vastly different from dogs and cats yet they require the same amount of expertise and care. Our team is well prepared with the skills needed to diagnose and treat your pet. Our facility is also equipped with specialized technology to meet your pet’s unique needs, while keeping your special friend safe and comfortable.

We recommend annual exams for your bird. From a small sample of blood we can determine if there is an infection or trouble with the kidneys or liver. We routinely see other pocket pets such as hamsters, gerbils and also rabbits. Spring time when the turtles and tortoises emerge from hibernation is a great time to bring them in, get a weight and examine them for any upper respiratory disease. Our lizard and snake friends often do not eat well during the winter months usually due to lower temperatures in their habitat.
