Small exotic mammals, not typically covered in standard exotic textbooks, beyond a brief blurb in a zoo veterinary textbook, can present from time to time in small animal practices. What does one do in these cases? Never fear, the first step is to triage whether you should see that animal, the next steps will be covered in this lecture.
