FAQ's for Care of Small Mammals

We provide routine wellness and preventive care services for exotic mammals.

  • Wellness & Preventive Care

    Much like cats and dogs, exotic and small mammals benefit from regular veterinary care to help live a long, happy, and healthy life. 

    During the initial wellness visit, our vet will thoroughly review your pet’s housing, nutrition, and care. A complete and thorough physical exam will be performed. Health screening tests and vaccines will be discussed and recommended when indicated.

    Our vet will discuss any health, or behavior concerns with you and answer any questions you might have. Recommendations will be tailored to the needs of your pet and their family.

  • What can I expect at an appointment?

    When you bring your exotic mammal in for a routine exam, we will assess the overall health of your pet.

    We will perform a thorough physical examination, recommend the appropriate preventive care, and answer any questions you may have about your pet to help ensure their health and longevity.

  • Sick Pet Appointments & Daytime Emergencies

    Small and exotic mammals with health or behavior concerns can be seen by our vet. If possible, please call  (270) 439-6110 in advance to determine the availability of our veterinarians.

    While we do accept walk-in and work-in urgent care appointments for these animals, there may be an additional fee if the double-booking of appointments occurs.

What is an Exotic Mammal?

Exotic mammals are small animals including rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, hedgehogs, chinchillas, rats, mice, hamsters and gerbils. 

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.
