Small Mammal Care

Rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, and other small mammals have become popular pets as increasing numbers of pet owners come to understand the unique bond that can form with one of these special creatures.

Small mammals are wonderful pets with engaging and fun personalities. Whether you have a rabbit, ferret, guinea pig, chinchilla, or small rodent, they all deserve specialized care. Small mammals have specific nutrition and medical requirements, and are experts at hiding when they are unwell. Every small mammal patient should have an exam and stool sample checked yearly. Some species of small mammals benefit from being spayed or neutered, either for behavior or health reasons. We partner with both IDEXX and the Avian and Exotic Clin Path Lab to perform quality diagnostics on your small mammal pet if they become unwell.
