Small Animal Medicine
At Animal Medial Clinic, we know that there are a lot of animals to complete your family — keeping them happy is your objective, keeping them healthy is ours.
Ferrets, Bunnies, and Rodents…oh my!
Make an appointment with us for a routine checkup at least once a year. This is for the purpose of general preventive care, but also allows your veterinarian to familiarize himself with your pet so he can more easily identify when your ferret is unhealthy. Annual exams should include weighing your pet; checking eyes, ears, and teeth; listening to the heart and lungs, and examining your pet for any internal or external lumps or abnormalities. You should also discuss any questions regarding behavior, diet, parasite control, or other issues with your veterinarian at this time.
Ferrets need to be vaccinated yearly against rabies and canine distemper.
When flu season strikes, it’s important to remember that ferrets are susceptible to influenza. They can catch the flu from you or others who are sick. If your ferret starts showing signs such as thick, clear discharge from the nose and ears, sneezing, fever, eye swelling or tiredness, please contact our office right away.
We can provide you with information on the care and feeding of your newest furry friend and many of our doctors specialize in small animals in the “other” category — we have many available resources to make sure that the newest addition to your family stays happy and healthy.
