Just because they’re small doesn’t mean they can’t benefit from regular veterinary care! In particular, the teeth, which grow continuously in guinea pigs and rats, often require trimming. We can also recommend appropriate chew toys, which may help keep the teeth worn down and prevent overgrowth. Parasites such as lice, mites, and fleas can also be a problem in rats and guinea pigs. In addition, small companion animals can suffer from other health issues.
If your pocket pet stops eating, loses weight, appears quieter than normal, has discharge from the eyes or nose, or develops a lump on his or her body, contact Huron East Animal Hospital right away. We can provide treatment that fits within your budget.
Choosing to own an exotic pet requires a special kind of owner, one who can afford to commit the time to provide the appropriate care. These animals make very rewarding companions but it’s important to remember that, because they are not typical pets, they often have special needs. At Huron East Animal Hospital, we can provide the guidance, advice and support you need to help your unique pet thrive.
Please feel free to give us a call and ask our passionate team of animal lovers any questions you may have about exotic pets.
