Hamsters and Guinea Pigs

Many pet owners erroneously believe that when a hamster or Guinea pig becomes sick, there is nothing that can be done. Our veterinarians have more than 20 years of combined experience in treating all pets, including small caged animals, hamsters and guinea pigs can benefit from regular veterinary care. We recommend annual exams and scheduling an appointment for an examination, x-rays and treatment if your small pet is in distress or appears ill. Unfortunately, blood tests are not available for hamsters or Guinea Pigs.

Exotic Pets


Veterinary care here at Best Friends Animal Hospital is not limited to dogs, cats and small furry animals. We can also treat all types of lizards. Pet lizards, iguanas and other reptiles can benefit from receiving regular exams, x-rays and medical intervention when they appear sick. Our animal hospital does not offer blood tests for reptiles.


We offer wing and nail trimming for birds as well as regular exams, preventative blood work and sexing. We can also give you tips on how to prevent boredom in your bird and finding the right sized cages.

If your pet’s behavior changes or you suspect your pet is sick, do not hesitate to bring them into our animal hospital. We are open Monday through Saturday with extended hours Wednesday and Thursday and short hours on Saturday.
