Learn About Our Wildlife Rehab Program
The doctors at Littleton Animal Hospital have recently become certified to rehabilitate wildlife!
Wildlife rehabilitation is the treatment and care of injured, orphaned, or sick wild animals with the purpose of releasing them back into their natural environments. We currently have a small program with a limited capacity but we are able to triage over the phone to help guide people to the best resources. We urge people to call us prior to intervening with any wild animal unless it is in imminent danger. A baby animal's best chance at survival is with its mother, so we may guide you through trying to reunite any potential orphans with their mothers before bringing them to a wildlife rehabilitator. Unfortunately, due to our size and facility restrictions we are unable to take certain species, including raccoons, skunks, bats, and large carnivores.

Dr Cox's Hometown Church Helps More Animals By Knitting "Nests"
Dr. Cox returned to her home town in CT over the holidays to learn that her local church was knitting nests for the injured animals from the Australian wildfires.
This is the same group of women that created the knit nests for our wildlife clinic that opened last fall.
An Australian friend of Dr. Cox will be delivering these nests to rehab facilities soon.
To learn more about this wonderful story, read the article Knitting Group Helping Australia's Animals with "Nests".

Lyme Disease Update
Lyme disease is highly prevalent in our area. It is caused by an organism called Borrelia burgdorferi, which is spread by the deer tick. We see many dogs with clinical signs of the disease and many more test positive for exposure to Lyme disease.
