Taking Good Care of Your Furry Exotic: Advice From Our Winnipeg Veterinarian Team

Don’t let their sizes fool you! Even though they are small-breed animals, furry exotic pets come with a great deal of personality and can bring a lot of love and uplifting energy into your home.
Of course, welcoming a small exotic pet into your house also means you and your family will be taking on the important responsibility of caring for a living creature. And unlike larger breed companion animals like cats and dogs, small furry exotics have some vastly different care needs.


Nutrition: furry exotic pets including rabbits and guinea pigs thrive with fresh leafy greens in their diet, whereas rats, mice, and hamsters are also known to eat some meat in addition to plants. Many people choose to supplement their furry exotic pets’ diet with pellet food. No matter how you choose to nourish your animal, it’s important that you offer them a species-appropriate diet that is scaled appropriately based on their age, breed, and overall health status. Our Winnipeg exotic pet veterinarian team can help you create the optimal dietary plan for your little companion.


Environment: providing your animal with the right habitat is essential for their comfort, health, and safety. We’ll help you know which supplies and equipment you’ll need to help your animal thrive, including cages, bedding, food, and water dishes, hideaways, and more.

Veterinary Care

Veterinary care: small exotic pets often have specialized health needs, and not all veterinary hospitals can meet those needs. Be sure to find a trusted veterinarian who has the training and experience necessary to provide your animal with informed medical care, including preventive and emergency services.
