At RVC Beaumont Sainsbury Animal Hospital and vet practice, you can be reassured that you are getting exceptional rodent vet knowledge and expertise. From the very first day you get your new rodent pet and throughout its lifetime- we can support and advise you every step of the way.

Sometimes rodent pets can be seen as an ‘easier’ option - especially as they may be the first pet a child ever owns. In reality, they may need as much looking after as other domestic pets, such as cats and dogs. We encourage clients to look into what is involved in caring for their pet rat or pet mouse before committing to owning one so all family members know what to expect to keep their pet happy and healthy.
