various small mammals

You’ve heard of a pocket watch, but what about a pocket pet? That’s right, a pocket pet is a small, furry little pet that can fit straight in your pocket! The pets that fall into this category are animals like rats, hamsters, hedgehogs, gerbils, and their slighter larger counterparts such as chinchillas, or guinea pigs. While these pets may not require daily walks or get excited about belly rubs, they’re still fun and unique animals. 

Before you decide to go out and purchase a pocket pet, it’s important that you know what type of living arrangement it needs, what it eats, if it needs exercise, and what type of veterinary care may be necessary. Each of the tiny pets listed above should be cared for just as traditional pets. To learn more about each of these pocket pets, read the articles below.

  • "Absolutely amazing place! If it wasn’t for the staff and Dr my boy Virgil would not have come home! Can’t thank them enough for getting my cat healthy again!!"
    - Holly Warren
  • "Winchester is always taken care of really well there & he just loves going to visit his ‘girlfriends’ lol
    They’ve even gone so far as to call us at home after any procedures he’s had, to check up on him & see how he’s doing. Always very caring, gentle & if Winchester himself loves it, that’s good enough for me.
    They’re the best place I’ve taken any of my pets to, hands down."
    - Danielle Couffon
  • "I've been taking my cat here for years and everyone there is very caring. My cat has had a lot of medical issues and they have always done their best to treat her, including free check-ups and sometimes not charging for certain things they would normally charge me for. They always call a few days after each appointment to check on Cinder. Couldn't ask for a better vet!"
