Small Exotic Pet Care
At Miller Place Animal Hospital, we understand the particular demands of caring for small exotic pets. Simply because they live in a cage doesn’t make than any less time-consuming or important than traditional pets. In fact, since they are sensitive to their environments and have unique needs, they may require more attention. Consequently, we offer a wide range of services for pets like rodents, ferrets, and rabbits.
Annual Wellness Care
The same as cats and dogs, small exotic pets require annual wellness care. When you bring your ferret, gerbil, rabbit, or any other small mammal in for regular wellness care, we have time to perform thorough examinations. If your pet’s behavior has been off lately, a wellness examination could determine any possible underlying causes. Wellness care is also a great time to receive nutritional and environmental counseling for your small exotic mammal. Because small exotic pets evolved as prey animals, disruptive, loud areas can make them overly anxious. Schedule an appointment to learn more.
Spaying or Neutering Your Pet Rabbit
If you have a pet rabbit, it’s best to spay or neuter them. In females, incidences of diseases like uterine cancer are markedly decreased after being spayed. For male pets, aggressive tendencies can also be markedly decreased after being neutered. Contact us to learn more or to schedule a wellness visit. We look forward to caring for your small exotic pet!
