When considering purchasing your pocket pet it's a good idea to ask yourself:
Is there a veterinarian close by that can handle my pocket pet's illnesses, injuries or emergencies?
What sort of habitat is necessary?
Is the animal appropriate for any children in the home?
What are your expectations of the animal?
Are you willing to devote the time needed to clean and care for the habitat?
How much money are you willing to invest should the animal become ill?
A new pet exam isn't necessary, however, symptoms requiring a visit include:
Lethargy Lesions or raw spots
Loss of fur Persistent scratching
Diarrhea Nasal or eye discharge
