Small Mammal Care

Sometimes known as “pocket pets”, these little buddies are fun companions, but do require regular care and attention to be healthy. They can also carry disease, so you must be aware of proper handling and hygiene.

We can examine and treat all kinds of small mammals, including:

  • Ferrets
  • Rabbits
  • Gerbils/Hamsters
  • Mice/Rats
  • Sugar Gliders
  • Hedgehogs
  • Chinchillas

Most illnesses in these pets are a result of incorrect care, so having a veterinarian to help you maintain the health of your pet is essential. Once you adopt your pet, schedule a wellness exam so that we can assist you in learning about species-specific behavior as well as how to properly care for, feed, and identify problems in the animal. This initial exam will also give us the opportunity to establish a baseline health profile for your pet, which is helpful should he or she become ill and need care in the future.
