Thinking that small animals require less attention
Many people think that it is always a good idea to buy for their kids a little animal because its maintenance involves fewer costs and attention, but this is not a good idea. Small or exotic animals need the same caring.
For instance, different species of fish need special food, just like cats and dogs, and the water should have the right temperature. Or if you decide to buy a turtle, they need a special aquarium with special décor. So, it is not that simple as we thought.
“Many exotic animals come with lots of requirements to keep them healthy. Find an exotic veterinarian near you and ask questions about their care before getting an exotic animal,” said Ochoa.
