What To Do If Your Pocket Pet Gets Sick

Is your beloved pocket pet sick? He could be sick if he shows any possible symptoms, such as having breathing problems, have diarrhea, is lethargic, or abruptly stops eating. You might also need to consider separating your sick pocket pet from his pack if you have a multi-pet household.

In the case of a gerbil or rat that is sick, you should carefully weigh the idea of separating him from other pets in the enclosure, unless the other pets are picking on him or he is really really sick. You should note that there is a high chance that other pocket pets have been exposed to the sick one even prior to the time you detect or diagnose the sickness yourself. Because of this, it's just proper for you to treat them all as suspected cases regardless if some of them appear normal. Observe him carefully as he might need immediate care from your vet clinic Crown Point IN.
