Recommended Veterinarians

It is CRUCIAL that you go with an exotics veterinarian. Not every licensed veterinarian is qualified to care for rabbits, guinea pigs, rats, hedgehogs, etc. (In other words, if your annimal is not a dog or a cat, chances are that you will need to find an exotics veterinarian.)

There are a lot of well meaning veterinarians out there that will try to help you with your exotics, but the truth behind those well meaning docs is that they are going by what they find in a book to help them out. If you have a true emergency, you need somebody who doesn't have to waste precious seconds trying to research a solution. A lot of the time, those precious seconds could mean life or death (and I am NOT being dramatic about this - these litte guys can crash extremely quickly!)
