Is this directory still in use? I can't seem to find it anywhere. I could just be missing it, but I can't find the resources link at all. I found a link in a post, but it took me to an error message.

I would really like to know where it is located now as well! I can't find it since the server move, and I'm in pretty desperate need of finding a good vet around here (NE Dallas area) for my girl Lucy, because she has some tumors that need to be removed. Can anybody post the link? :-\
I also can't find it. ???

I can't find it either and am looking for good vets in Southern Nevada with neuter experience.

I'm not sure where the directory went, so I'll post it up here for right now in case it can help anyone in the Southern Suburb area of Chicago, IL.

Suburban Animal Hospital
10929 S Cicero Ave
Oak Lawn, IL 60453
(708) 636-3600

This seems to be the most affordable place to take Rats around here. I've searched and searched for an exotic-friendly veterinarian that wouldn't completely break the bank, and none met both requirements and most were way too far away for me to drive on top of it. Little did I know, our family vet of well over 20 years can take my boys in! The staff at Suburban Animal Hospital are very friendly, helpful and know their stuff. They don't handle too many rats and will require a specialist's eye in a lot of cases, but Dr. Latoza will be able to prescribe you medications for your rats if the need be, as he's done for me. Plus, you can't beat the price on the bill! It was a total of $30 for the appointment and the presription (Sulfadimethoxine, I'm going back tomorrow for Doxy and Baytril)  I can't say it'll be the same price for you, but it sure as heck beats the $65 appointment fee of some places around here!

I have no idea where the diretory is either. But I'll post mine! I don't think there are many people in my area but it's worth a shot. I emailed them in advance, apparently they do have a vet that sees reptiles and rats but he does not work there every day, so it's a good idea to call in advance. It's a very nice facility inside, fairly newer (built in the last 10 years). I've asked them the prices of neutering/spaying rats, but have not yet gotten a reply so I'll update this thread with more info/experiences! They do work with the Animal Shelter, which is about 2 minutes down the street from them.

I live in NYC and have gathered the information of some vets that will see rats. I have also called some of them up and asked how much it would cost for a rat. Out of this list, I have only had personal experience with Dr. Anthony Pilny, but I know that all of these vets have seen rats in the past. Dr. Pilny is great, seems knowledgable, and I am told is the only full time board certified avian and exotic pet specialist in NYC. He also keeps in communication via e-mail after your visit, which is great for questions and followups. He also did a great job of spaying my rat. Feel free to PM me with further questions about my experience with Dr. Pilny.

This list was taken from a post by Raquel on the NYC Rat Meetup thread. The names in parentheses are the people/rat owners who vouched for these vets.

You have to pay on phone before you even book appointment, and it's non refundable and non-exchangeable so if you try to change the date you have to pay again.

I can't find the resources link to look for vets. I am new on this forum so I don't see the resources link at the top of the page like the post says. Can anyone help me or post a direct link to it for me?

Hi everyone,

I have been searching for a vet that treats exotic pets. After asking around with family and friends I have found this clinic, they have two vets on board that deal with exotic pets, and have been doing so for many years. All the people I spoke to had nothing but positive thoughts on these doctors and clinic.

I live in Mt. Carmel, Pa, about 10-20 mins from the clinic. Here is the info on the clinic:
1225 W. Spruce St. Coal Township Pa, 17866
Phone: 570-644-1006
Fax: 570-644-1109

They also have a second clinic that the exotic vets switch with:
6 Northumberland Street, Danville, Pa 17821
Phone: 570-271-1828
Fax: 570-271-1835

Hope this info will help someone.

Breathing life into an old thread.. there's a bunch of vet threads, so I'm sorry if this isn't the most current or best one.

I'm getting ready to move and looking for recommendation for vets in the southern New Mexico area.
