VCA Rossmoor-El Dorado Animal Hospital

Pocket Pets

The term "pocket pet" is a commonly used phrase that can include hamsters, guinea pigs, rats and mice. Dr. Glasser has a special interest in seeing these adorable creatures and is well trained in medicine and surgery. These little guys have special dietary and husbandry needs specific to each species. Although quite hearty, they can become ill very quickly and typically don't show outward signs until they are very sick. Make an appointment as soon as you see any changes in behavior, eating, bowels or urinary habits. A yearly wellness exam is recommended.

A good resource for small mammal medicine and husbandry is and search for your pet's species.
