Ensuring your pet is up to date with their vaccinations is very important to prevent against deadly diseases.

Sterilisation (otherwise known as desexing or neutering) is recommended for many exotic pets and it is important in preventing many problems that can occur later in your pet’s life. We recommend that rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, rats and mice should all be routinely desexed to prevent a range of issues.

Nail clip edit

Are your pet's nails getting a little sharp? Many pet's, particularly those kept indoors, often don't wear down their nails as they naturally would if they were out in the wild. Over time this leads to them becoming sharp and overgrown. Some nails will even curl back on themselves and start to dig into your pets foot which can be very painful.

Faecal testing can be a great way to screen your pet for internal parasites such as worms and coccidia which can be life-threatening if left untreated. It can also be very helpful if your pet has diarrhoea or other gastrointestinal signs (including weight loss) to try to find what is causing your pet to be unwell.

Jacque Beak

Normal birds generally wear down their beak naturally and do not generally require regular beak trimming. Unfortunately some birds develop abnormal beaks, this can be as a result of a developmental problem, nutritional deficiency, illness or can also be due to an injury.

It is often necessary for people with multiple animals to know the sex of their animals, either to avoid breeding or to allow breeding to occur. We recommend the use of DNA sexing for avian species as it is a safe method that provides accurate results.
