Rabbit Vet and Pocket Pet Care

No matter their size, every pet deserves the opportunity to live their best life.  Rabbits and pocket pets are no different. Each one needs regular veterinary care just like cats and dogs, in order to maintain their quality of life. Our veterinarians are trained to recognize the subtleties of rabbit care and pocket pet care and to treat them with gentleness and compassion. Bring your smallest furry friend to your local pocket pet & rabbit vet for a comprehensive wellness assessment.

Comprehensive Wellness Exams

Your pocket pet or rabbit needs individualized care suited to their needs, and we’re here to give them just that. Small mammals are particularly gifted at hiding any illness or injury. Typically, as creatures of prey in the wild, they would not want to appear more vulnerable than they already are! We perform a full assessment of your pet’s health in order to catch any sign of malady. A physical exam gets us heading in the right direction, and we’ll perform other medical services as needed. For more in-depth pocket pet care, we can perform diagnostics, as well.

Additionally, we go over the following with you:

  • Nutrition and feeding needs
  • At-home habitat conditions
  • Cleaning and grooming
  • Handling and socialization
  • Optional spay and neuter for rabbit care
  • Vaccinations, if needed

Common Medical Concerns

Rabbit care and pocket pet care are more than one-dimensional. They not only need the basics of food, water, and shelter, but a bit of extra care as well. At your appointment, we’ll address the most common medical concerns for your pet and how you can prevent them:

  • Vitamin deficiencies. Vitamin C is a big one, but can be solved with a simple diet change of more foods high in C.
  • Dental issues. Some rodent species, particularly rabbits, have continuously growing teeth. A diet rich in fiber helps wear the teeth down.
  • Tumors. Rats especially can develop tumors in their breast tissue. Yet, while most are benign, they cause great discomfort for your little friend.

Taking the First Step: Schedule Your Introductory Appointment

An initial exam for your new pet is the first step for getting them on a path to long-term wellness. After an introductory appointment, we can better assess their needs later on, to continue giving them exceptional rabbit or pocket pet care. Make an appointment for your rabbit or pocket pet today!

The vet and the staff are nice, attentive and very knowledgeable. We are so happy on how much attention they give such as doing follow up calls to check on my dog after getting his immunizations and how understanding they were because my dog felt very anxious. Definitely recommend this place and we’re so happy to find a vet near us that’s way better than the one that we used to go to.

I trust the care of my beloved 11-year-old pug to Dr. Perry. He is very knowledgeable and gentle. He is not only a doctor, but also a friend who listens. The front staff are always polite and considerate. I love this place! So glad I found it since I am new to Chicago

I've been taking my cat to Broadway Animal Hospital the past few years until recently when she passed away suddenly from a rapidly declining lung condition. 

When Dr. Kas was informed of my cat's passing he called me personally to say he was sorry and really comforted me in my time of mourning... I really appreciate that quality of service. I have had nothing but great experiences when I took my kitty in for checkups. When I'm ready to adopt another furry life companion, I'll gladly take them there

Fantastic doctors and staff! Dr. Kaz and his entire staff were just wonderful with our little girl chihuahua mix. Would highly recommend to all!

Kit S.

Dr. Kas and his staff are wonderful.  I've been going to BAH for almost 35 years and would never consider going elsewhere.  When I visit, I know my companions have had the very best care (and the most up to date care) available.  Thank goodness they are here for us!

Yesterday was Jackson's first visit. We found the clinic and its staff A1 -- we received a follow up call today to check how Jackson was doing post shots. He is well; chewing his favorite toy and all is well. We highly recommend this very impressive pet care center: 5 star service 5 star staff.

Connor R.

Great people with neighborhood feel. Always call to check up after appointments and have worked my dog in on very short notice on multiple occasions.

Jeff B.

What an exceptionally friendly and well-run office! Everyone on staff was extremely helpful and outwardly happy to help. They treated my cat like she was their own and talked me through everything they were doing. If she needs anything else going forward, this is who I'll be taking her to.

I’ve visited 6 animal hospitals as I have moved several times around Chicago. This is hands down the best experience I’ve ever had with a vet in terms of care, pricing and friendliness. Now that my dog is 8 years old, I feel happy to say that we’ve found a team of vets that we trust.

Carol-Ann B.

The staff was wonderful! The vet was excellent! We were in and out very quickly but all my questions were answered ! Highly recommend!

Leila S.

I have been taking my cat there for about 8 years. They have been very helpful and even saved me money from unnecessary procedures when my cat was sick. They truly care for the well being of the animals. Prices are reasonable also. Friendly and knowledgeable stuff.

I brought my old dog, a thirteen-year-old Siberian husky, here when his body began to fail in his old age. Dr. Perry was so tender and caring with him, and they ensured me that nothing was seriously wrong with him other than the effects of age. He passed nearly a year later, and he did so quietly and peacefully, not racking up any vet bills to try and "bring him back." So glad to have BAH in my neighborhood! Thanks, guys!
