Despite the small size of exotic small mammals, such as guinea pigs, rats and ferrets, we can still offer a high level of veterinary care for these patients in the emergency setting. This lecture aimed at vets and nurses, will cover the basics of first aid for common exotic small mammal species including fluid therapy, analgesia, anaesthesia and CPR. We will also discuss common emergencies you will see in practice, such as respiratory disease in rats, urinary stones in guinea pigs, wet tail in hamsters and insulinoma in ferrets.
