This presentation will cover some of the more unusual small mammal species seen in practice. The species range is growing and with changes in the Dangerous Wild Animal Act a few years ago is changing ever-faster. The main emphasis of the presentation will be on some of the more common diseases, but a basic guide to natural history, husbandry and diet will also be covered as these can have a profound effect on the incidence of disease. The species covered will include skunks, pygmy hedgehogs, sugar gliders, degus and prairie dogs
