Owning a small animal

Small animals are adorable pets, especially as a first pet for a child. Aside from providing your child with a fun companion, owning their first pet will also teach them about responsibility.

If you’re thinking about buying a dog or cat for your child soon, seeing how they handle a mouse, rat or guinea pig is a great way to assess whether they can handle the responsibility of a larger pet.

If you are trying to decide between our small animal options, we can advise you on the pros and cons of owning mice, rats or guinea pigs. In general, guinea pigs and rats are better pets in terms of their relationships with humans. Rats are often described as small dogs because they can form a lovely bond with their human owner.

While mice can be fun pets, they are not as responsive or affectionate. Mice make better pets if you are looking for a small animal will keep to itself.
Regardless of which small pet you choose, it’s essential to buy the relevant accessories and pet food. The right accessories will help you to create a comfortable and safe space for the pet at your home and the right pet food will allow them to live a healthy and long life.
