Why do I need to bring my pocket pet in for an annual check-up?

Concealing signs of illness and pain is a common survival mechanism displayed amongst most small animals. Whilst your bird, rabbit or reptile might look and behave perfectly normally, it’s quite possible that it’s all an act. The only way to properly evaluate the health of your pocket pet is to bring them in for a physical assessment with a professional vet. Regular check-ups help ensure health issues are diagnosed early and treated before they affect your pet’s quality of life.
