Have an exotic pet, pocket pet or bird in North Carolina? The veterinarians at Bonnie Brae Veterinary Hospital are experienced in the care and treatment of many different animals, including pocket pets and birds!
Pocket pets refer to the smaller household pets besides cats and dogs, such as guinea pigs, hamsters, mice, rats, gerbils, and hedgehogs. Every pocket pet is unique with different care and treatment requirements. Our veterinarians know the ins and outs of your furry friend’s health. We can give you helpful tips for safely and comfortably handling your pet, as well as consult you about a proper diet, toys and cage accessories, and general maintenance.
For our avian friends, we offer many different veterinary services, including wellness exams, parasite, bacteria or yeast examinations, blood tests, behavioral and dietary consultations, and grooming & wing trimming. We recommend that you bring your bird in for a wellness exam every 6-12 months; birds are proud creatures and often mask illnesses until it is far too late.
For new bird owners, we recommend having a full examination done before taking your new pet home. Birds who have had recent contact with other birds in a pet store are far more likely to be infected with contagious diseases, parasites or bacteria.
