Cockatiels, parrots, parakeets, lovebirds—every type of bird can come along with its own nuances when it comes to nutritional needs, housing, and healthcare. make sure your feathered friend gets a visit to the exotic veterinarian annually for an overall wellness check, but birds may also need:
- Help for behavioral issues like anxiety and plucking
- Fecal tests to monitor for parasites
- Treatment for species-related lice or mites
Pocket pets include rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, rats, ferrets, and other small mammals are a joy to have around, but these pets can need periodic vet attention to stay healthy. Your pocket pet should get an annual checkup, but may also need to see the exotic veterinarian for things like:
- Spaying or neutering
- Screening for illnesses and diseases
- Assistance with grooming, such as nail or tooth trimming
Pocket pets can be especially prone to injuries, and even seemingly slight illnesses can have serious consequences. Therefore, it is best to seek vet care immediately if you suspect something is wrong.
