FAQs for Care of Exotic Pets

  • What is an exotic mammal?

    Exotic mammals are also known as small mammals and are small animals such as rabbits or ferrets.

    Many exotic pets are prey species in the wild and consequently can be very good at hiding the signs of illness until it is quite advanced, which is why preventive veterinary care is so important.
