Ross Hospital for Animals is happy to care for rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, and other small mammals. These small pets have become popular as increasing numbers of pet owners come to understand the unique bond that can form with one of these special creatures. Some common questions asked by new small mammal owners include:
- Should my small mammal be spayed or neutered?
- Are vaccinations recommended to help maintain good health?
- What is proper nutrition, cage cleaning protocols, grooming needs, or other aspects of care needed?
Our staff of skilled professionals is well trained in the care and husbandry of small mammals and can give you the information you need to keep your “pocket pet” looking and feeling great.
We can perform a physical examination, answer any questions you may have about your pet, and discuss whether any changes in diet or at-home care are recommended to help ensure the health and longevity of your pet. If you own one of these unique pets, we encourage you to schedule a complete physical exam and consultation on proper care and feeding.
