Here at Wilston Vet we love looking after our little Ratties. We provide all veterinary services to rats and pocket pets ranging from basic husbandry advice to surgery under anaesthetic. We appreciate that rats make fantastic pets and that people become very much attached to their rats, just as they do to their dog or cat. Your rat or pocket pet is just as important to us as any other pet we treat. We are also happy to provide any advice over the phone or via email so do not hesitate to contact us if you have a question about your little ratty
