Due to the increase in demand for veterinary services we kindly ask that you plan in advance for routine visits. At this time we are booking 7-10 days in advance for Wellness/Vaccine appointments. In addition, all prescription refills will require a minimum of 24-48 hours notice.
Medical care that can extend the life of your pocket-sized pet.
Adorable and tiny animals like guinea pigs, hamsters, gerbils, etc. are usually seen as great first pets. To live out their full life and remain healthy, pocket pets require proper nutrition, specific housing, grooming and socialization. At Glenora Family Pet Clinic, we are delighted to extend our services to pocket pets. We can help keep your tiny companion safe from illnesses and help you be the best owner for your pet.
We usually recommend that pocket pets have one veterinary visit each year. With annual visits, we can diagnose underlying health issues and monitor their overall health. Because of how small they are it can be difficult to know when they are experiencing pain, however our team can spot the signs of illness. Contact us at 780-428-8802 for an appointment if you spot these signs:
Not all pocket pets have the same lifespan, some live longer than others. The care you provide for your pocket pet can also benefit them and allow them to live longer. Hamsters will live from 1 to 3 years while animals like gerbils can live up to 10 years or guinea pigs can live from 5 to 7 years.
Yes, although they are smaller and have less fur than cats or dogs you can still be allergic to them. People with asthma or allergies can have a reaction to pets with fur or animals who have hay as a main part of their diet like rabbits.
