Hello,

My friend's daughter is away at school with her rats and is in need of a vet.  She accidentally moved her chair and caught her paw.  She is in contact with her vet at home, but that's 8 hours away.

She's at Temple University in Pennsylvania.

Please email me at onlineswa@yahoo.com

Thanks for the help!

Hello:
I live in downtown Los Angeles, CA and am looking for a nearby vet who has experience with rats and won't charge (a poor college student) outrageous fees. I'm worried my newest rat is developing pneumonia, and need someone close and soon. Thanks!

Has anyone here had any experience with a good vet in Tucson, AZ... specifically with neuters?  I live south of Tucson but our vets here are not really experienced with rats and are also extremely expensive.  Thanks for the help...!

Hoping someone can give me a good small animal vet / rattie doctor?
 I'm about 30 miles outside of Atlanta and can drive a little bit, but I'd much rather not drive too too far , for the boys sake.

How about Springfield, MA??  I saw the post about central Connecticut, but thats over an hour away from me.  Anyone have any suggestions? All resources I can find about "rat-friendly" vets on the internet are outdated. Also, Im just a college student, money is real tight  :confused:

I'm looking for a rat experienced vet (surgery) in Northeast GA. The Athens area would be OK, but Atlanta is 100 miles away. I have a vet close by for colds or things but I don't like her odds for surgery survival 50%.

SimplyCathleen- there is quite a long list of vets in Virginia if you scroll down on this site.  I don't live in Virginia, but I found this site- it's helped many with their state's vets (It lists all the recommended vets from members of that site in each state on it.)  Definately worth checking out! http://www.ratfanclub.org/vetref.html

Goosemoose has a new feature to help people look for vets.  Check under the main home page, vet Directory, about half way down the left hand side. Or you can find it under the resource menu at the top of this page, click on vet directory.

Hey, still looking for a rat vet in western Pennsylvania.  People around here think of my girls as either food for something bigger or as icky things they set traps for! :o  If anyone has any helpful info, please, please, please contact me.  I've asked around here and the vets all laugh at me for wanting to bring in my rats.  :-  :worry:


Thanks. :BlueDumboSmile:

There were two articles written about my vet "DR. MIKE" as the Rat Doctor!  his name is Dr. Mike Hutchinson   his practice is called Animal General  it's in laSalle Plaza in cranberry pa... i do not know the phone number (i'm currently living in New York for school so it's not one of those need to know numbers right now)  He is a really good rat guy!  I HIGHLY suggest him!

Hey I need a vet ASAP for my rat, but I live in the 90007 area code in Los Angeles, CA and don't know any vets that take care (or are knowledgable) about rodents. I would definitely prefer one that wouldn't charge inordinate fees, but I'd take most anything as of now. Thanks.

Hi damandawg,
 I use a vet out in Montclair which is about 35-40 minutes for you who is a great rat vet. Check out her information in our Vet Directory (under resources at the top of the site). Her name is Dr. Batt and there is a Dr. Lidikay there who is also an awesome vet to my previous ratties.

PLEASE READ!!!

I know a lot of you are concerned about your animals, and costs seem pretty high. Take the time to search online for a vet clinic near you that specializes in exotics as well--this usually means they care for smaller rodents, including rats, e.g. not just specializing in cats and dogs.

DO use yellowpages.com and google/yahoo local. I just found an additional vet clinic nearby (6 miles away) which offers 50% off new clients first visit exams. There are lots of these offers floating around; do NOT be afraid to call and ask!!! I've called plenty of clinics asking how much the office visit fee is, and also if they were offering discounts.

Lastly, good luck! and good health.

Does anyone know of a good rat vet in Columbus, OH? Two of the vets on the recommended vet list are no longer here, and the other one is the one I'm going to now. I'm not completely happy with him.

Looking for a vet around Westchester,NY.  I love the vet I have, but he's charging OVER $900 for a tumor removal, and if there is another vet in my area that is as good as my vet, I have to look into it.

Hello, I'm wondering if anyone knows of a good vet around Vancouver, BC (Canada)? I'd like to take my two girl rats in for a check-up later this month ^^ (just wanna see if there healthy, or if I missed something). One on the lower end of the price range would be helpful too ^^;. Thank you!
