Pocket Pet Vet Care

We are no longer a vet for just cats and dogs here at Park West Veterinary Associates. Our veterinary care now extends to small mammals such as rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, etc., as well as some small reptiles like bearded dragons and turtles!

"Pocket Pets," as we call them, have specific health and lifestyle needs to live long, happy lives with their owners. Dr. Elise Mauer and Dr. Carl Schmidt are available to help you navigate wellness care, injuries and illness, and even some surgeries for these special pets. Dr. Mauer is a member of the Association of Exotic Mammal Veterinarians and the Association of Reptile and Amphibian Veterinarians, which allow her to continue to learn and grow in this area of veterinary medicine while discussing cases with specialists and access to related medical journals and conferences.

Annual wellness checkups are important to make sure all their needs are met, including nutrition, grooming, handling, habitat, and behavior. Give us a call today to schedule a new patient appointment for your tiny companion.
