Small Animal Medicine

Small animals, such as rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, degus, rats, mice, hamsters or gerbils, are amongst the most popular pets.

Because these animals hide symptoms of illness for as long as possible, due to them being “prey" animals in nature, and because of their tendency to stress easily, they require a special kind of diagnosis and treatment.

It is therefore particularly important to us that an individually tailored therapy is begun after diagnosis, in which you as the pet owner are involved because usually further treatment at home is required.

Our medical foci are in the areas of:

  • Dentistry
    Examination of the oral cavity under anaesthesia in conjunction with diagnostic imaging (head / dental X-rays), gentle and safe tooth corrections with an electrically operated diamond grinder (we offer special consultations for our smaller dental patients), and
  • Modern anaesthesia
    completely antagonisable injectable anaesthesia, gas anaesthesia, monitoring and emergency medicine

Further services include:

  • Internal Medicine
    Diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the digestive system, respiratory and urinary tracts
  • Soft Tissue Surgery
    including neutering male/ female, tumour surgery, removal of urinary stones, surgery for intestinal obstruction
    and orthopaedics (treatment of fractures)
  • Diagnostic Imaging
    X-ray, ultrasound, CT scans
  • Laboratory Diagnostics
    Blood, urine and fecal examination in the clinic's own laboratory, and also in cooperation with external laboratories
  • Dermatology
    Diagnosis and treatment of skin diseases
  • Gynaecology and Andrology
    Diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the female and male reproductive systems
  • Health care
    Including vaccinations, advice on care and feeding
