Small Animal Supplies

Petland Florida offers valuable information on caring for your small animal pet and choosing a pet that is right for you.  We have a wide selection of products for Hamsters, Ferrets, Rabbits, Guinea Pigs, Chinchillas and more.  We offer all the products you will need to meet your pet’s four basic needs.

Behavioral Needs

  • Niches/Hide Outs – Stress-free hiding places and sleeping quarters for your small pet. Provide physical structures and/or materials for your pet to make their own niche.
  • Exercise Wheel – Many small animals will forage over great distances in their natural habitat. An exercise wheel allows for exercise inside the cage.
  • Fun Ball – Allows safe exercise outside of the cage and a place to put the pet while cleaning the cage.
  • Chew Stick or Block – Many small animals (except ferrets) have teeth that continue to grow throughout their life. Chew toys help keep teeth trimmed.
  • Treat Stick –Small animals forage for their food naturally. Treat sticks provide an alternate food choice, where the pet must work to remove food…this is a natural behavior.
  • Collar and Lead – Helps keep control of your small animal in new situations or on an outing. Also provides exercise and socialization.
  • Book – Background information and instructions for ongoing care.

 

Maintenance Needs
