Pocket Pet Care

Pocket pets refers to small animals such as ferrets, gerbils and hamsters. All of these wonderful pint-size creatures require specialized care, so reading up on them before bringing one into your home is very important for their health and well-being.

Our Pocket Pet Care Services

Your team at Harbor Animal Hospital recognizes that exotic and pocket pets are companions, deserving the same level of veterinary care as dogs and cats to live long, healthy lives.

Dr. Brooke Kinroth has a special interest in exotic and pocket pet health and is happy to help with concerns and wellness exams. At this time, we are limiting our exotic pet care in order to further our staff comfort and education needed to appropriately treat these often-delicate animals.

Please see the below list of exotic/pocket pets Dr. Kinroth is offering care to. We will update this list as our capabilities expand. Call us at 847-746-1915 to schedule your exotic pet with Dr. Brooke Kinroth!

Pocket Pet veterinary care includes helping to create a comforting and loving final "farewell' (euthanasia) for any species of pet when it's time (to prevent unnecessary suffering). Your team at Harbor Animal Hospital will be here for you during the hard times too, because we understand how valuable these times are.

We recognize that it is common for exotic patients to not show signs of illness until their illness is advanced - often life-threatening. We cannot provide full-service emergency care for the species mentioned above at this time. Please contact our community's local emergency veterinary hospitals, such as:

Veterinary Emergency Group

VCA Milwaukee Emergency Center for Animals

(When possible) It is always best to call ahead so the staff can prepare care for your pet. All records can be transferred to our hospital, at any time, so we can stay connected.
