Pocket Pet Veterinary Services

Although small animals, or pocket pets, like hamsters, guinea pigs, and ferrets may not require much outdoor exercise, they still have the potential to get diseases.

Respiratory (breathing) problems are very common and also very dangerous since it is through their sense of smell that they can tell where their food and friends are. If you notice your furry friend experiencing any change in appetite, stool production, breathing, or behavior, such as hiding, they may actually be ill and need immediate veterinary care. If they happen to live with other roommates, there is a significant chance that they may be infected as well. Often times the sooner the diagnosis and treatment, the better the result.
