Understanding Small Animal Care is the Best Preventive Care

Regular pest control is important for your small mammal's quality of life.Your pocket pet should have an annual physical exam that can catch problems in the beginning stages rather than coming in when the problem is bad. It’s beneficial to you and your small friend to come in yearly for optimum care! Sykesville Veterinary Clinic offers annual checkups for most small animals, including: rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, gerbils and hamsters.

A Physical Exam will Pick Up on Threatening Pests

Your small animal, like a cat or dog, is prone to external parasites. The type of pocket pet you have will change what you parasite control solutions you should be looking for! Rabbits and ferrets can be susceptible to ear and manage mites while guinea pigs are a risk for lice. There are special parasite prevention medications you can buy to suit your small mammal’s needs.

I’ve been coming to Sykesville Veterinary Clinic for 10 years. I have always been happy with the care provided here.
