Small Mammals

At Hickory Veterinary Hospital, we treat a verity of exotic or pocket pets including, Rabbits, Hamsters, Gerbils, Guinea Pigs and Ferrets.

Each of these small mammals make great companions and can be an exceptional alternative to the traditional dog or cat.

Our goals are to provide a long and comfortable life for your exotic friend. Each species poses its own particular health challenges. For instance, a rabbit needs to be checked for dental issues, sore hocks, fleas and ticks, respiratory and urinary tract infections. Ferrets may develop low blood sugar and hair loss.
