She also said that sheknew 3 more vets in the area that see rabbits so she is well networkedand she has someone to consult with...She is also available to herclients by pager in emergency situations and if she is not she refersto an emergency clinic where they have rabbit vets...The business hoursare 10 a.m. to 5 or 6 p.m. with some Saturdays (by appointment). Thefee for a routine check up and all other charges (for surgeries andtreatments) are the same as cats.

We recently went to the Animal KingdomVeterinary Hospital (at the end of Jan.) and I picked up theirbusiness card. Dr. Valentine is not listed on it, so I'munder the impression that she no longer works there. We wererecommended to see Dr. Stacey Weinrick, DVM,but saw Dr.Brigette Dagenais, DVM.She was very niceandhandled Bender (our first bun)verywell. However, this was forjust for a healthcheck-up, not treatment. Both of our rabbits wereneutered/spayed at the Humane Society of Huron Valley in Ann Arbor.

I second the recommendation of Animal Kingdom! Itwas a bit of a drive for us but we got all 3 of our rabbits fixed there(2 spays and 1 neuter) and they couldn't have done a better job, verybunny savvy people there. 2 paws up!
