Bringing Your Small Pet to the Vet
We recognize that coming to the vet can be a stressful experience for any pet, particularly our small ones. Our staff and doctors are very sensitive to this fact and do whatever we can to limit this stress.
Your pet may be more relaxed if brought in its regular enclosure if possible. It is also best not to clean the enclosure prior to bringing your pet in. This will allow your pet to be surrounded by familiar, comfortable smells, and will also retain samples for diagnostic testing if needed to better evaluate your pet.
Many of these animals do require a very particular environment to thrive, and it’s important you have a veterinarian experienced in their care to help. Our doctors can advise you about proper care, feeding and maintenance of your pet, as well as treat illnesses and conditions specific to their species.
Need to bring your out-of-the-ordinary companion to see us? Give us a call at (360) 377-3801.
