Rabbit and Pocket Pet Care
Northern Pike Veterinary Hospital is pleased to offer veterinary care for rabbits and pocket pets, under the care of select veterinarians. Just like dogs and cats, rabbits and rodents (chinchillas, mice, rats, guinea pigs, and hamsters) require a standard wellness exam on a regular basis to ensure they’re healthy. They may also require diagnostic care, such as blood work or X-rays. Our facility is equipped to address a wide range of healthcare needs for your furry friend to help him/her live a happy, healthy life.
Caring for a Rabbit or Pocket Pet
Owning an exotic pet is similar to owning a dog or cat in some ways, but in other ways, it’s very different. We have several veterinarians who are trained to address the unique needs of rabbits and pocket pets who can answer any questions you have about how to best care for your pet. If you’re considering bringing a rabbit or pocket pet your home for the first time, there are a number of factors to consider, such as:
- Choosing the best hay
- Housing (cage, tank, hutch, etc.)
- Preventive medicine
- Litter box training
- Common health problems to be aware of
Give us a call at 412-373-8580 to request an appointment at Northern Pike Veterinary Hospital for your rabbit or pocket pet. One of our team members will be happy to speak with you.
