Show Love to Pets: Finding Vets in Surrey to Treat Your Small Friend


Small animal ownership is on the rise in the UK. While rabbits and rodents used to be seen as children’s pets, busy lifestyles, smaller homes, and lack of green spaces all mean that many adults are choosing smaller pets as their animal companions.

It is a mistake to treat all small animals in the same way. Habits and needs vary greatly between species, even those which at first glance seem quite similar. Hamsters are nocturnal and solitary, while gerbils are active during the daytime and need to live in pairs or groups in order to thrive. Rabbits and guinea pigs were once often kept together, but this can be very stressful for the animals due to their different behaviours and needs.

Just as small animal species differ dogs, cats, and each other, in the lifestyle they need to keep them happy and healthy, they also require different care. It’s important to find a local vet who understands your pet and its needs.
