Pocket Pet Vet Care Services
Because rodents and other small mammals don’t live as long as dogs and cats, it’s even more important to bring your pocket pet to the vet once a year for a check-up or as needed if the little guy gets sick. Except for ferrets, most pocket pets are prey animals in the wild, meaning they’re likely to hide the fact that something is wrong as a survival instinct. Be aware of any behavioral changes in your pocket pet, and schedule a vet appointment if you notice things like decreased activity level, less interest in food, or differences in the way your pet interacts with you.
At Village Vet of Urbana, we provide many of the same services for pocket pets as we do for our more traditional patients. These include, but are not limited to:
- Check-ups and wellness exams
- Flea and tick control and treatment
- Diagnostic services, including X-rays and ultrasounds
- Blood work and lab tests
- Surgery, including spaying and neutering
If you need a service performed that you don’t see listed here, contact us today to find out how we can help.
