Small mammals other than dogs and cats are often known as “pocket pets”—and these little buddies are fun companions. However, they do require the right environment and regular attention to be healthy. These pets can also carry disease, so you must be aware of proper handling and hygiene.
Our veterinarians are happy to examine and treat all kinds of small mammals, including:
- Guinea Pigs
Many 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 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.
Need to schedule a visit for your pocket pet? Just give us a call at (413) 782-3183.
