How do I know if my pocket pet needs medical care?
Like all pets, we recommend bringing your pet in once a year for a full veterinary exam. With regular check-ups, we can monitor their health and diagnose any underlying conditions or symptoms they may be experiencing to prevent them from getting worse. Due to their size, it may be difficult to notice any signs of discomfort or pain. Signs to look for are hair loss, loss of appetite, diarrhea, limping, runny eyes or nose. If you notice any changes in the health or behaviour of your pet, bring them in to see one of our veterinarians so we can have them feeling like their best selves in no time.
