    Comments: [Dr. Clark] is a wonderful bunny vet, very knowledgeable but also will listen to any suggestions we may have. She helped our Biggles through a nasty abscess that he got from a fight wound last year. [The clinic has] 24/7 emergency care, but there are several vets at this clinic and Dr. Clark is the only bunny vet.

    Comments by Cathy: Early in 2004 Gwynedd Vet re-opened in their new state-of-the-art facility. (Original building was destroyed in a fire.) They offer 24-hour emergency service, 7 days a week. (Do not assume all doctors are experienced with rabbits.) This is the vet I use. I have seen both Laura and Alan. Laura specializes in exotics and is very knowledgeable. She is considered the clinic's "bunny vet". She maintains many contacts with professors and colleagues at her veterinary school. Alan used to be my regular vet before Gwynedd had an exotics specialist. He is a very good and sensitive, caring person.

    Comments: (Do not assume all doctors are experienced with rabbits.) 24 hour emergency service. I have used Anna Edling when she worked at Gwynedd Veterinary Hospital. She is very good and keeps up-to-date on rabbits by going to seminars, etc. I was very impressed with her work. When I had diet questions regarding Nutmeg, she copied her notes from a seminar and sent them to me. Anna also diagnosed and treated Alice when she broke both back feet. Hickory appears to be a VERY BUSY hospital and I have no personal experience with leaving a bunny overnight.

    Comments by Libby: Dr. Ibrahim is a wonderful doctor and surgeon. He has been treating a very bad case of head tilt in one of my bunnies for a few months now and has operated on my other bunny twice for fatty tumors. His bedside manner is amazing and his techs and staff are wonderful too. They really go above and beyond for my buns. Dr. Ibrahim seems to really care about my buns and I couldn't have gotten through the past few months without him.

This animal hospital is located in the Greater Philadelphia suburbs. Zeke and Misty see Dr. Peters for check-ups. Zeke was also neutered, and they both get their nails trimmed,here. I've had nothing but fabulous experiences with them. Everyone seems very knowledgeable, and very sweet and accomodating, as well. Highly recommended!

Banfield Pet Hospital
Monaca, PA

I don't how how amazingly rabbit savy the doc is, but he was a hugehelp when my dutch rabbit, Gideon came down with something odd andstopped eating, drinking, and was almost 2 pounds underweight and feltliek a skeleton in my arms. They were able to take me almostimmediately and Giddy looked 80% by the next day after multipleinjections and the medications perscribed. Within' a week he was hisold self again and put on at least a pound, maybe pound and half fromhis perscriubed diet. I will definitely go back here again. They askedme to call in 3 days and update them. I was at work that mornign andplanned on calling in he evening when I got home, but when I got homthey had already called asking if Gideon was alright. I thuogh that wasvery nice of them.

Mobile Vet Rainbow Clinic
Darlington, PA

Also a great place. They do house calls and emergencies at all hours ofthe night. They were able to repair a backwards overlap of my one dutchrabbit Artemis's teeth. After one visit and a perscribed diet of acrapload of timothy hay, Artie's teeth actually returned to normal.When I brought her back for a checkup, they said she doesn't need themtrimmed again, she's fine. And since we didn't do anything we're notgoign to charge you. Nice. Artemis went on to win 2 grand championlegs.

I would highly reccomend both of these vets.

Dr. Robert Wagner
VCA Fox Chapel Animal Hospital

Dr. Wagner is wonderful. I just started taking my boys to see him backin February, and I absolutely love him! His clients are mostly exotics,and he is also an experienced veterinary surgeon. He is the vet thatperformed the extraction of Alfred's incisors. Additionally Dr.Wagnerallows all of his clients to watch the surgical procedures that heperforms on their pets.
