Pet Care Tip of the Day

Be sure your pet rabbit or rodent always has something to chew on. Rabbit’s and rodent’s teeth grow continuously. Small pets need to chew, as this wears down their teeth evenly so they stay a correct length. If your pet doesn’t grind down its teeth, its teeth will grow so long your pet will be unable to eat and could die. Pet stores have many chew sticks and chew toys to help your pet keep its teeth the perfect length.
