Gerbils, Guinea Pigs, and Hamsters

Just because they’re small doesn’t mean they can’t benefit from veterinary attention.


Gerbils, Guinea Pigs, and Hamsters

Your small “pocket pets” need specialized care and attention to feel their best and live their longest, happiest lives. Not only should they receive regular wellness checks, but they will also feel more comfortable day-to-day with ongoing treatment.

Teeth, which grow continuously in gerbils, guinea pigs, and hamsters, often require trimming. (We can also recommend appropriate chew toys, which may help keep the teeth worn down.) Parasites such as lice, mites, and fleas can infest your pet. In addition, these companion animals can suffer from other health issues that we can diagnose during their regular exams.

Call us if your pet stops eating, loses weight, appears quieter than normal, has discharge from the eyes or nose, or develops a lump on its body. We can provide treatment that fits within your budget.
