Small Mammal

What Are Examples of Small Mammals We Treat?

At our exotic pet clinic, we treat mice, hamsters, guinea pigs, and more. We also care for chinchillas, rabbits, and birds. Generally speaking, if you have a small mammal as a pet, we’re probably up for the task of providing veterinary care for the pet.

Although there may be some small mammals that aren’t on the list that we treat, the ones we’ve listed are generally the ones we’re used to seeing. Still, that doesn’t mean that we aren’t capable of treating rarer small mammals. If you’re not sure if we’ll be able to treat your beloved pocket pet, it doesn’t hurt to give us a call before you bring your pet over. In an emergency, though, we recommend bringing the pet in so we can refer you to an appropriate provider if needed.

How Are Small Mammals Treated Differently than Larger Ones?

If you’ve already taken your pet to an exotic veterinarian near you before, you’ll probably know that exotic animals require specialized care. At our exotic vet care practice, we ensure that your exotic pet receives care from a specialized exotic pet vet who is qualified to care for them. Having a vet for small mammal pets at an animal hospital or animal clinic can make all the difference in the quality of care that your pocket pets receive.

Exotic pets may have illnesses that larger pets are less likely to experience. They may also show symptoms of illnesses and injuries differently than larger pets. Some conditions that wouldn’t be an emergency for a larger pet could also be life-threatening for a smaller mammal since they may be more fragile than bigger mammals. Every species comes with quirks, risks, and preferences that we consider as a veterinary practice that treats different exotic animals.
