Pocket Pets Services

At Centennial Animal Hospital, we understand that exotic pets need special handling and care. We, therefore, have an exam room specifically designed for these species to minimize stress while visiting. Our technicians are trained in handling exotic pets as well as providing specialized care when administering treatments.

It is our philosophy that preventative medicine is the best medicine, therefore we feel that exotic pets should have yearly routine health exams just like dogs and cats. These examinations and consultations can ensure your pet remains healthy and is provided with the care it requires. We offer routine preventative and surgical health care for a variety of exotic pets. Dr. Chandra Hickling is one of our veterinarians who has a special interest in avian and exotic medicine. She has over 20 years of experience working with exotics.

    How to help injured and orphaned wild animals

    Below are a few suggestions should you come across injured or orphaned wildlife.  First, you need to determine if the wild animal is indeed injured or abandoned without putting yourself in harm’s way. Try not to have too much contact with the animal or to disturb the surroundings. If you are unsure, it is best that you leave it be and call a wildlife specialist to notify them about the animal and its location. Certain animals like rabbits and deer often leave their young alone for long periods throughout the day. If it appears healthy and well, do not disturb the animal.
