Your Toledo Resource for Veterinary Care for Exotic and Pocket Pets
If your idea of a pet stretches beyond the ordinary choice of a dog or cat, then you have probably grown interested in getting an exotic or pocket pet. A pocket pet is pretty much any animal that will fit in a pocket, while “exotic” refers to any animal not normally domesticated and kept in the household.
A small lizard, for instance, would count as both an exotic and a pocket pet. Exotic/pocket animals that attract pet owners include birds, mice, rats, hamsters, gerbils, rabbits, lizards, snakes, turtles and other fascinating creatures. But while you can find many of these animals in pet stores, you may not know where to seek skilled veterinary treatment and pet wellness care for them. Fortunately, you can find that skill and training right here at Trilby Animal Hospital.
Rodents may love to nibble on the nuts you feed them, but they will become grossly overweight if you feed them nothing else. Turtles may only eat the food you give them when the temperature reaches a certain level. Our animal hospital can provide professional advice on exactly what and how to feed your pet.
