Pocket Pets

OUR APPROACH

Big love for small pets

From birds to rats and rabbits, if some love and attention is needed then you’ve come to the perfect place for your pocket pet. 

We can provide the very best in healthcare for your miniature mate, including desexing procedures and vaccinations so your small buddy stays strong.  This includes treating a range of small mammals, birds and other pets for whatever is needed.  Intricate and complex, working on pocket pets is a real skill and we’re blessed to have a team with equal levels of experience and passion.  Whether you need advice, preventative care or emergency action...our team is ready and waiting.  We look forward to seeing you and your little friend soon.
