Improper housing and feeding are the leading causes of illness and even death in many pocket pets. Since these cute little creatures have an innate ability to mask signs of sickness until the problem has reached an advanced, sometimes even fatal stage, it is imperative to educate yourself on what specifically your pocket pet needs to lead a happy, healthy life. With each species comes a different set of needs, ranging from:

  • Specialty diets and supplements (oftentimes in pellet form)
  • Consistent housing temperatures
  • Specific bedding
  • Proper shelter
  • Fresh water
  • Different handling instructions
  • Unique bathing requirements
  • Appropriate and safe toys or cage accessories

We highly encourage you to contact us today if you have questions on how to properly care for your little loved one. We can provide you with plenty of professional advice and veterinary guidance to help ensure the wellbeing of your pet.
