Pocket Pet Services

Smaller animals make adorable pets. The same love and attention that you would give your bigger pets are the same that you should give your pocket pets. At Komoka, our team has years of experience providing care to pocket pets. Because they are smaller, it is much easier to take care of them, but that doesn’t mean that the veterinarian’s advice or perspective wouldn’t help.

What animals are considered pocket pets?

  • Gerbil
  • Hamster
  • Guinea pig
  • Ferrets
  • Mice

When should my pocket pet be taken to the veterinarian?

Once a new furry friend is welcomed to your family, they should be taken in for a wellness exam. After their initial wellness check, your pocket pets need one routine examination each year. This will ensure they are growing for their age and catching any potential issues before they advance. If you notice your pet has diarrhea, vomiting, coughing, sneezing, or lumps, you should immediately take them to a veterinarian. We encourage you to book an appointment for your pocket pet by calling 519.641.8383
