Unlike many other veterinary clinics and animal hospitals in the area, we're also proud to offer exotic pet care in D'Iberville. While we do not offer veterinary treatment to farm animals, we do provide care to a number of animals aside from your "typical" cat and dog house pets. For example, we have worked with everything from reptiles to birds and just about every exotic animal in between, so you can rest assured that your pet will be in good hands here. Our full-service animal hospital allows us to treat a wide variety of animals while providing outstanding care in the process.
Dr. Askew is well known throughout D’Iberville and the surrounding areas for his skill with unusual animals and pets. Below you can see a YouTube video of Dr. Askew working with an unusual pet in the area.
He’s even been in the news for it! Dr. Askew saved an injured bullfrog from near death after being struck by a car. Using the same techniques that a medical doctor would use to treat a human, Dr. Askew used wire to fuse the broken vertebrae of the spine. The frog, Jeremiah, was given pain medication to ease his pain.
No matter what kind of veterinary care your exotic pet may need, we have you covered. From routine wellness exams and vaccinations to dental care, injury treatment, disease management, and everything in between—we've seen and done it all. We encourage you to come into our office at least once a year to ensure that your pet has its wellness exam; this is a great way for us to stay on top of your pet's health and development in addition to keeping an eye out for any potentially problematic changes that could indicate a disease or other medical problem.
Depending on the type of pet you have, we may also recommend any number of vaccinations or immunizations to protect not only your pet, but the rest of your family (and other pets) from illnesses and diseases. Our veterinarian in D'Iberville can administer these vaccinations right here in our office as part of your pet's regular wellness exams.
If you're going out of town and want to make sure your pet is taken care of while you're away, we also offer boarding services so you can enjoy added peace of mind while you're gone. And finally, if your pet is the type to get anxious or nervous on a trip to the vet's office, consider asking about our house call services. Our veterinary professionals may be able to come out to your home and provide basic care to your pet in the comfort of your pets own familiar space.
