On average, how much time does it take each day to care for a pet hamster, mouse, guinea pig or rabbit?

A: Thirty minutes. Amphibians, reptiles and fish require the least amount of care, about 10 minutes a day and 3 hours to clean their tanks or homes every few weeks. Cats and birds require around 30 minutes of daily care while dogs are the most “”time consuming”” at more than one hour per day. This includes feeding, grooming, cleaning, exercising, training and veterinary care.
