October is National Diversity Month
Recognizing dogs, cats, birds, ferrets, rabbits, reptiles, pocket pets, and more!
At our hospital, we recognize that not all animals are built the same or require the same care. Caring for cats and dogs is a whole different world than care for a guinea pig, bird, or reptile. Luckily, we’ve got you covered! Our veterinarians see a plethora of animal species, with the knowledge and resources to give your critter the best care possible. Our doctors have seen animals such as rabbits, turtles, bearded dragons, snakes, chameleons, birds, hedgehogs, guinea pigs, and others.
Although these animals look and act very differently, they all need routine care. This includes annual examinations, blood work, preventatives, and proper education for care at home.
To find out some more information on care for these exotic animals, please see veterinary partner. They have some great links on things like Aggression in Captive Reptiles, Ferret Flea Control, Rabbit Natural Behavior, Rodent Husbandry and Care, Nutrition for Small Mammals, and Signs of Illness or Disease in a Bird.
Reptilesmagazines.com also has tons of information on choosing and caring for your pet reptile. Please choose wisely, these pets need a lot of care and are very particular about their living conditions!
October also has Vet Tech Appreciation Week!!
Show some love for your hard working techs by thanking them at your next appointment and letting them know how much you appreciate their help and care.
These are some of our technicians you might see running around the hospital. They all have a tremendous amount of experience and knowledge, and are dedicated to nurturing the human-animal bond that our clients experience with their pets.

“Day in the life”
A typical day in the life of a vet tech consists of in-taking appointments, trailing after doctors, giving vaccinations, anal gland expressions, temperatures, cleaning the hospital, filling medications, follow-ups on sick patients, assisting in surgeries, holding dogs during exams, and a whole lot more.
We LOVE our techs
