Our Exotic Small Mammal Wellness Services
Due to their size and unique needs, small mammals can experience rapid health changes. With regular yearly health checks, you can stay ahead of these shifts and avoid major health complications.
What to expect during a routine wellness check:
- Full physical assessment and weight monitoring
- Blood tests (CBC and chemistry panels)
- Stool sample check
- Guidance on nutrition and care needs
- Ferret vaccinations (if applicable)
If you have any specific questions or concerns about your pet's well-being, such as unusual behaviors or signs of sickness, we’re here to address them. Beyond the physical check-up, we also offer advice on optimizing their living conditions, lifestyle, and diet to boost your pet’s overall quality of life and minimize future health risks.
