FAQs for Care of Exotic Pets
- What is an exotic mammal?
Exotic mammals are small animals such as guinea pigs, rabbits, ferrets, mice, rats, gerbils, hamsters, chinchillas, and hedgehogs. Lots of exotic pets are prey species in the wild and as a result can be especially good at hiding the signs of any illnesses until they have advanced, which is why it's so important for them to get preventive veterinary care.
