What’s small enough to sit in your palm, furry, and heart-meltingly cute? Pocket pets, of course! Guinea pigs, hamsters, gerbils, ferrets, rabbits, and other small animals (from mice to lizards) are often perceived as easier to care for than other pets. However, the reality is that pocket pet care requires similar levels of time, energy, and medical attention.
Small for Small Spaces
In an era that celebrates tiny houses and living with a smaller footprint, pocket pets are becoming more and more popular. Of course, many people who live in apartments are also limited when it comes to the type of pets that are allowed, and pockets pets fit the bill nicely.
Although pocket pets don’t depend on daily walks like dogs, they do depend on clean living standards, routine interaction, and veterinary care – all of which The Pet Experts at Springbrook Animal Care Center are happy to assist you with.
This time of year, accidental pet poisonings spike, due in part to a collective effort toward spring cleaning. The goal is to have a nice, clean, and safe home to share with your pet, but with the addition of dangerous ingredients, household cleaners can often stand in the way of that. Whether it’s the storage or the application, pets and cleaning products aren’t always a good match. Luckily, The Pet Experts at Springbrook Animal Care Center have the scoop on protecting your pet.
