At North Central Animal Hospital we take good care of your exotic pets. Our founder, Dr. Frank, focuses on pets including birds, reptiles and favorite mammals like dogs, cats, rabbits, rodents and ferrets. Dr. Frank is a member of a select group of avian experts and treats not only pet birds, but also donates services for the care of wild birds for licensed wildlife rehabilitators. She’s the sole veterinary bird specialist in private practice in the state of Arizona.
Caring for birds
We provide full service veterinary care including diagnostic testing, treatment and surgery. Dr. Frank is one of only 150 veterinarians certified in avian practice worldwide. We also provide licensed avian wildlife rehabilitation as a part of our mission to care for native and migratory birds.
Caring for reptiles
Reptiles may be a great pet for those with allergies. To keep your reptilian pets healthy you must pay special attention to nutrition, proper caging and lighting, and recognize the signs of illness.
Caring for mammals
We provide veterinary treatment for many mammals, including dogs, cats, rabbits, rodents and ferrets. Each species is different and requires specific veterinary care. For example, Ferrets may seem exotic, but their dental care requires regular brushing just like yours. Other small mammals have very exceptional requirements. Their teeth never stop growing, which is why you may need to bring them in for a trim. What are these strange animals? Rabbits and rodents. If their dental trim is too far overdue, they’ll begin to drool. Feeding them properly with adequate amounts of coarse fibrous hay to help wear down their teeth can help.
