As the temperatures start to soar and the humidity rises, summer can take an additional toll on exotic and pocket-sized pets. Although hot weather certainly affects cats and dogs, these special creatures often need additional care and consideration when it comes to housing and temperature control.
Summer is also peak season for travel, and many pet owners want to bring their tiny pals along. Some pets are also much more susceptible to heatstroke due to where they originate, and parasites that can harm exotics are in abundance this time of year.
Get the scoop about caring for exotic pets during the summer season by checking out our tips and recommendations!
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.
