Pocket Pets

Small mammals are adorable!

Our vets are passionate about all aspects of care for guinea pigs, ferrets, rats and mice!

Guinea pigs are herbivorous animals and rely in correct nutrition to lead a healthy life, often needing supplemental vitamin C every day their bodies. While easy to look after they need daily poop scooping and fresh water. Also a weekly brush will keep their coats clean and tangle free.

Ferrets are very sociable animals and can make wonderful pets, especially if handled and socialized well from an early age. They are part of the mustelid family, alongside animals such as weasels, otters and badgers. They are inquisitive and playful animals with characteristics similar to those of dogs as well as cats.

Rats and mice are simple to care for and love social interaction with people. They make wonderful pets, are intelligent and easily tamed. They are easy to handle though always be careful with younger children that may hold them a little tightly.
