Pocket Pets Services

Pocket pets, or exotics can be great companion pets that often need routine veterinary care just like dogs and cats. Although we mostly see dogs and cats at Mission Ridge, we are happy to help with your pocket pet if we can! Just as with dogs and cats, regular physical exams are important for your friend. They allow us to diagnose or catch illnesses early and provide the best care lengthening their life span!
