The Scoop on Small Pet Poop: Normal, Abnormal, and Everything in Between
Let’s face the facts, we all poop…every animal does. Some species, like rabbits and guinea pigs, just do it a lot more!

Curbside Veterinary Care for Small Mammals

Curbside Veterinary Care for Small Mammals
Like it or not, COVID-19 has altered the way most of us conduct our day-to-day lives. As a devoted pet parent, one of the unexpected changes you may encounter is the necessity for curbside veterinary care. While some may prefer this option, many pet parents would rather be present during your little one’s exam. Unfortunately, the close quarters of many veterinary clinics put staff and pet parents at a greater risk of spreading and contracting the virus so extra precautionary steps must be taken.
