Exotics and Pocket Pets
Gaines Shoal Animal Hospital provides expert veterinary care for rabbits and ‘pocket pets’ such as ferrets, guinea pigs, hedgehogs, prairie dogs, mice, rats, chinchillas, hamsters, and gerbils. Our exotic pet veterinary care includes:
- Wellness Care
- Husbandry Techniques
A large part of caring for these species has to do with their husbandry; making sure they have the proper housing, and appropriate diet, and that their owners understand their natural behavior patterns. Each species also has its own common diseases that require veterinary care, and we recommend annual physical exams to check for early signs of problems.
