Not Just A Dog and Cat Hospital!

Kathy With SnakeSo often when I think of pets I think of dogs and cats and I know many of you think the same way. Even though I have had many different pets over the years: dogs, cats, hamsters, turtles, cows, chickens and rabbits I still think of dogs and cats as the "big Kahuna" of pets. While they are the most popular there is a growing trend to adopt the "other" type of pets. Allergies among human children seem to be a big influence on the type of pet parent will allow their human children to adopt. These types of pets are commonly know as "pocket pets".

Pocket pet is a term used to refer to any small mammal commonly kept as a household pet. The six general criteria which qualify an animal to be considered a pocket pet are:

  1. its commonality as a domestic housepet
  2. no potential danger to humans or other animals
  3. non-exotic
  4. overall ease of care and feeding
  5. amicable disposition making it suitable as a "companion" pet
  6. relatively small stature

The most common pocket pets include rodents such as: hamsters, gerbils, fancy mice, fancy rats and guinea pigs. It also includes pets such as sugar gliders, flying squirrels, hedgehogs, and hermit crabs.

Park Avenue Animal Hospital is pocket pet central. The Doctors and Staff are well versed in treating all kinds of pocket pets as well as birds, snakes, and rabbits. It is no telling what you may find in the waiting room of PAAH!
