Cats and dogs might be what most people think of when we say the word ‘pet’, but at Vets in Cranbourne we know that animal friends come in all shapes and sizes, so we offer veterinary care services for all kinds of domestic animals. Just like cats and dogs, pocket pets like rabbits, guinea pigs, mice, rats and birds require regular check-ups and veterinary care to ensure they live a long and happy life.

Our pocket pet services include:

  • Annual wellness examinations
  • Nail trimming
  • Dental care
  • Blood tests, x-rays, skin scrapings, and biopsy of lumps
  • Surgeries for de-sexing, lump removals and other problems
  • Nutrition and environmental counselling

The Importance of Annual Exams for Your Pocket Pet

Because of their size, signs of illness or pain in smaller animals often go unnoticed. Like most animals, pocket pets will also try to conceal signs of illness or discomfort and that means that sometimes serious health conditions fly under the radar. Even if your pocket pet looks healthy, we recommend bringing them in for annual health checks as a veterinarian will be able to do a thorough physical examination and diagnose any health conditions before your pet begins to show symptoms

Vets in Cranbourne love to see pocket pets and our extensive experience caring for smaller animals means we’re able to offer advice and support whenever you need it.
