Burr Ridge Veterinary Clinic knows that best friends come in all shapes and sizes, and that’s why in addition to dogs and cats, we provide comprehensive care for more unique small pets. Small mammals (sometimes known as “pocket pets”), exotic pets, and birds are fun companions; however, they require the right environment and regular attention to be healthy. They can also carry disease, so you must learn the proper handling and hygiene to keep them happy for a lifetime. Dr. Rooney & Dr. Johnson are available to examine and treat all kinds of small and unique animals, including:

  • Iguanas
  • Turtles
  • Land tortoises
  • Geckos
  • Rats
  • Rabbits
  • Rodents
  • Non-venomous snakes
  • Hedgehogs
  • Bearded dragons*
  • Birds*
  • Reptiles

If you recently adopted or purchased your pet, schedule a wellness exam so we can educate you on how to properly care for, feed, and identify problems in the animal. Have questions, or want to bring your out-of-the-ordinary companion to see us? Make an appointment online or give us a call at (630) 598-0600.

*We do NOT currently see ferrets or birds and bearded dragons that are ill, so please be sure to mention if you are coming for a wellness visit or if you suspect illness.
