Exotics and pocket pets might be small, but they are also mighty and they deserve – like humans and more conventional pet companions – the best of care. At North Oatlands Animal Hospital, we specialize in exotic pets and small mammals and their unique medical needs.
We recommend an annual wellness exam to be sure your exotic or small pet is healthy, and these exams give us a baseline for future reference in the event your pet ever falls ill.
While it may be true that puppies don’t
come with instructions, counseling with our veterinarians about feeding,
housebreaking, socialization, and basic training will set your pup up for
success as a family member.
Next to good veterinary care, training and socializing your puppy are the two most important things you can do to ensure your pet has the best life possible. In addition to making your dog a well-behaved part of your pack,

At North Oatlands Animal Hospital we understand that it’s never easy to say goodbye to a beloved pet, and we want to help make that difficult time more manageable by providing compassionate hospice and euthanasia services for your animal companion. We offer those services at our hospital and via house call within our community.

your pet’s comfort and dignity during his or her last days and final moments.
We take pain management very seriously because experiencing pain can affect the body’s physical functioning and can have a detrimental effect on a patient’s well-being and state of mind.
Our approach to pain management involves anticipating potentially painful procedures and taking steps to manage and minimize discomfort from the outset as well as continuing to manage pain throughout your pet’s treatment and recovery process. Our staff of caring professionals is skilled in recognizing signs of pain in animals and developing an individualized plan for managing pain in our patients.
Laser therapy is a painless, non-invasive and drug-free therapy used to treat a variety of injuries, wounds, fractures, neurological conditions, numerous dermatological problems, and pain. Whether your pet is rehabilitating from trauma or injury, healing from wounds or simply aging, your companion will benefit from this revolutionary new approach to pain management.
How It Works
Laser therapy focuses red and infrared light on tissue at and below the surface of the skin.
One of the worst feelings to experience as a pet owner is the
realization that your pet has gone missing. Only 17% of dogs and 2% of cats
make it back to their owners—which can make it seem like you’ll never see your
pet again if they get lost.
North Oatlands Animal Hospital wants to encourage you to consider microchipping your pet, even if they live entirely indoors–because even indoor pets can escape and become lost.
Itching, scratching, chewing and licking! Pets can develop a variety of skin conditions during their life, and we see many pets with skin problems and allergies, including food allergies. North Oatlands Animal Hospital can diagnose and treat most of your pet’s dermatology problems, including:
