Expert Care and Guidance

Although small mammals make wonderful pets, they’re not for everyone (just like owning a cat or dog isn’t for everyone). We encourage you to do your research and ask questions before making a final decision. If you end up with a new addition to your home, we recommend scheduling an appointment with us as soon as possible. Each small mammal pet has unique needs, and special consideration should be given to matters such as exercise and cage structure. Although it may be convenient to just ask questions at the local pet store, it’s always best (and safest) to consult our team first.
