Vet Care for Exotic Mammals
Rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, and other small mammals have become increasingly popular pets as pet owners come to understand the unique bond that can form with one of these special creatures.
Just like cats and dogs, small mammals need routine wellness care.
Our skilled Westport veterinary team is well trained in the care of small mammals and can give you the information you need to keep your pocket pet looking and feeling great.
What is an exotic mammal?
Exotic mammals are small animals like rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, hedgehogs, chinchillas, rats, mice, hamsters and gerbils. As many of these pets are prey species in the wild, they can be very good at hiding the signs of illness until it is quite advanced, making preventive veterinary care even more important.
What can I expect at an exotic appointment?
When you bring your exotic mammal in for a routine exam at Poster Veterinary Associates, we'll perform a thorough physical examination to assess the health of your pet. We will also recommend appropriate preventive care, and answer any questions you may have about your pet to help ensure his or her health and longevity.
