The veterinarians at Memphis Animal Clinic are experienced in the care and treatment of many different animals, including pocket pets! Pocket pets refer to smaller household pets besides cats and dogs, such as guinea pigs, rabbits, hamsters, mice, rats, gerbils, and hedgehogs.
Every pocket pet is unique with different care and treatment requirements. Our veterinarians know the ins and outs of your furry friend’s health. We can give you helpful tips for safely and comfortably handling your pet, as well as consult you about a proper diet, toys and cage accessories, and general maintenance.
