Rabbits and Small Mammals
Veterinarian care for small mammals
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 need some of the same routine wellness care that dogs and cats need.
Stow Kent Animal Hospital and Portage Animal Clinic can answer the following questions.
- Should your guinea pig be spayed or neutered?
- Are vaccinations recommended to help your ferret maintain good health?
- What is the proper nutrition, cage cleaning, and grooming procedures for your pet rabbit?
Our staff of skilled professionals is well trained in the care and husbandry of small mammals and can give you the information you need to keep your “pocket pet” looking and feeling great.
Why not call to schedule a wellness visit?
Stow Kent Animal Hospital and Portage Animal Clinic’s will perform a physical examination, answer any questions you may have about your pet rodent, and discuss whether any changes in diet or at-home care are recommended to help ensure the health and longevity of your hamster or other small pet.
Veterinary medicine for exotic pets is growing as the popularity of these animals increases. When pet owners have access to the best information about nutritional and environmental management, exotic pets have a greater chance to live longer, healthier lives.
If you own one of these unique pets and live in the Summit County, Portage County, or surrounding Ohio areas, we encourage you to fill out a contact form and schedule a complete physical exam and consultation on proper care and feeding. Our trained staff can assist you with all of your small mammal needs.
