Small Mammals & Other Exotic Pets:
Informed Care for Special Friends

Small Mammals and Other Exotic Pets

Pound Ridge Veterinary Center appreciates pets of all species and understands that all kinds of animals can become cherished companions. And, just like dogs and cats, exotic pets and small animals need routine veterinary care to stay healthy. We welcome the opportunity to get to know your special companion and to provide trusted veterinary medical advice and treatment for your exotic pet.


We routinely treat a wide assortment of exotic pets, including:

  • Chinchillas
  • Ferrets
  • Guinea pigs
  • Hamsters
  • Mice
  • Rabbits
  • Rats

Special Pets Require Special Care

Proper nutrition, housing, and daily care are keys to keeping exotic pets healthy and happy and preventing disease. Many exotics have very specific requirements in this regard, and their health can suffer if they’re not given the proper care. In many cases, pet owners simply don’t know how to provide correct care since the personnel at pet stores, where many exotic pets are purchased, may lack the proper expertise.

Our veterinarians and staff are highly skilled at caring for many types of exotic pets. We are here to help you understand the special needs of these unique animals. Services provided for small mammals and other exotic pets include:

  • Husbandry advice
  • Preventive care
  • Diagnosis and treatment in the case of disease or injury
  • Surgery (including spay and neuter)
  • Sexing
