YVCipedia: CATS & DOGS, BIRDS, REPTILES, RABBITS, RODENTS AND OTHER SMALL MAMMALS, FERRETS, FISH

Yvcipedia Provided by Your Yarmouth Veterinarian

Yvcipedia is your veterinarian provided source for accurate pet information. Our veterinarians in Yarmouth understand that when you have a question about your pet's behavior or health, you want information that is accurate and helpful. This is why we have created an information database for pet owners with dogs, cats, birds, bunnies, ferrets, rodents and pocket pets.

Small Animals and Pets

Small Animals We Treat

Our veterinarian is skilled and experienced in treating cats and dogs, as well as unusual avian, pocket pet and reptile species. In short, if you have a small pet, we welcome him with warmth and expert know-how. Our veterinarian treats:

Cat and Dog Veterinary Information

There is a plethora of information on the Internet about dogs and cats, their behaviors and signs and symptoms of common ailments. Unfortunately, there is just as much misinformation as there are good sites. To ensure that you are getting veterinarian approved information, we recommend viewing our veterinary information database. We have articles on common dog and cat behaviors, how to correct bad behaviors and the signs and symptoms of the most common ailments in dogs and cats, including external and internal parasites, certain skin disorders and dental diseases.

Guinea Pigs

A lovely little pet, guinea pigs can be long or short haired and come in a variety of colors. They can weigh up to 3 pounds and can live up to 10 years. As with all small animals, our veterinarian can help you design a healthy diet for your pet.

Hamsters

One of the tiniest of the small animals, hamsters fall into the “pocket pet” category and are typically fun and friendly pets. They don’t live as long as guinea pigs with a typical life span of 2 to 3 years.

Geckos

A longer living pet, with a life span of up to 20 years, these little fellows are shy and require careful handling and patience. Their diet consists of worms, crickets and plenty of fresh water.

Rabbits

These fun pets are one of the more popular visitors to our Yarmouth Veterinary Center. They can be trained to leash, understand basic voice command, and use a litter box. You have a wide choice with 60 breeds in the United States ranging from 2 to 13 pounds

Parrots

Remarkable creatures, parrots are intelligent, friendly, and usually establish a strong bond with their owner. With a life span of up to 80 years, our veterinarian encourages owners to make provisions for their pet after they die. They also range in size and color and are known for aping things their owners say.

Ferrets

Ferrets fare best when they can roam freely about the house, and can otherwise become cranky if confined. They are not particularly friendly with strangers and show displeasure by nipping. They typically live 5 to 8 years.

Betta Fish

Not all fish are easy to take care of, but not so the Betta Fish. Beautiful in color and small in size, their average life span is up to 3 years.

Turtles

Another long living pet among small animals, these slow-moving fellows can live up to 40 years. You’ll need to provide them with a good-size aquarium equipped with shallow water and rocks for perching. Our veterinarian will be happy to help you design your pet’s home.
