LafeberVet does not provide medical advice to pet owners.

If your pet is ill, please contact your local exotic animal veterinarian. Your veterinarian will want to obtain detailed information about your pet’s history before performing a complete physical examination. This crucial information can then be used to develop a plan for further testing and/or treatment. To find a veterinarian in your region, please use a veterinary locator service.
