Ferret Wellness & Vaccines
Ferrets are susceptible to diseases such as Insulinoma, Adrenal Disease, and Lymphoma. Vaccinating your ferret against these diseases will help bolster their immune system. Aside from vaccinations, ferrets should also be fecal tested to check for any worms and parasites. Keeping up with wellness exams is also key in maintaining your ferret’s health.
On average, ferrets can live between 7 to 10 years and can make for good pets for those who live in a smaller space. Ferrets are active and energetic, and they love to dig and chew on everything!

Goat Wellness & Vaccines
Owning goats is a big commitment and can be very time-consuming. Before getting any goats it’s important you consider if you have the time, resources, commitment, knowledge, and facilities to care for them. Goats are not gardeners – an overgrown garden or hedge is not a good reason to get some goats. These animals need 24-hour access to dry, well-ventilated housing of sufficient size, construction, and containing suitable facilities.
Goats should be given a wellness exam once a year to check for any possible health issues. While vaccines and dewormers are important, undergoing wellness visits are just as crucial.
