The Importance of Annual Exams for Your Pocket Pet

Rabbits, birds, guinea pigs, rats, mice and lizards are the ultimate pretenders when it comes to feigning health and illness in these animals can be very difficult to recognize. It is important for all animals, but especially important for pocket pets to come in annually for a complete physical examination and health check – early prevention is vital to prolonging your pet’s life!

At Vets on Parker, we love seeing pocket pets and we will always offer you friendly advice so your pet can live a happy and healthy life.
