What pocket pets do you service?

The Airdrie Animal Health Centre is happy to offer a wide coverage of pocket pet health care. Our veterinary professionals are equipped to provide routine preventative care, surgical procedures including neuters and spays, digital X-rays, parasite treatment and more.

What are the benefits of spaying or neutering my pocket pet?

Pocket pets are typically avid breeders and spaying or neutering them is the best option for preventing breeding. In some species, especially rabbits and guinea pigs, ovarian cancer is a very common health issue. Spaying your pocket pets removes the risk of ovarian cancers, further insuring they stay healthy throughout their life.
