William E. Kurmes, DVM (PetBunny)
Highland Housecalls (mobile vet clinic)
Flagstaff, AZ
(928) 522-0376
Comments: A mobile veterinary clinic that does house calls. The fact that Dr. Kurmes provides care for rabbits and other small companion animals at their home creates less stress for them. He performs rabbits spays/neuters and other procedures on site. Dr. Kurmes is a good, compassionate vet who really listens to a client's description of symptoms and is willing to consult with other rabbit vets as necessary (he is not an exotic vet). Dr. Kurmes services the entire Flagstaff area, and is not always able to respond at a moment's notice to emergencies; the mobile clinic is not a pet ambulance service.

I (finally)found a wonderful rabbit specialist!!! YAY!! If you are looking in Tucson, Arizona, he owns the Central Animal Hospital at 3113 North Country Club. South of Speedway on Country Club (behind Chuy's). A wonderful, clean facility. AND in addition to all of his credentials, he is a great man. Funny, compassionate and I immediately felt comfortable with him! Here is his experience:

Doctor Michael Samuels graduated from Iowa State University with a Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine in 1990. After graduation, Dr. Samuels expanded his education via externships at the Bronx Zoo, a large private exotic medicine practice, and the Animal Medical Center in New York City. He has since practiced in a high-volume veterinary hospital in metropolitan New Jersey, while concurrently providing veterinary services to the Turtle Back Zoo of West Orange, New Jersey and practicing in a busy veterinary emergency service.

Dr. Samuels is a member of multiple veterinary societies including: American Veterinary Medical Association, Arizona Veterinary Medical Association, Association of Avian Veterinarians, Association of Reptilian & Amphibian Veterinarians, American Association of Zoo Veterinarians, and others. He is also the Past-President of the Mid-Atlantic States Association of Avian Veterinarians and a past member of the Board of Directors of the Tucson Herpetological Society.

Here is his site: http://www.centralah.com/

For affordable spay/neuters in Tucson, AZ, Animal Birth Control East, Dr. Day, is fantastic. Nice clean clinic, $55/neuter, $105/spay (I think)performed byDr. Day. Shehas s/n many, many rabbits and said she can count on one hand the number she's lost. My male was neutered there and came home without even a minor hitch. The staff loved him and several were bunny owners themselves. Too bad they don't do regular vet care but prices for spays/neuters in Tucson can't be beat. Will be back with my female soon for her spay and feel very comfortable leaving her there.

Kevin Wright has opened his own mobile practice and will come to your home or meet him at the clinic. He has a new website

http://<a href="Http://webph.com" ta.../webph.com</a>

or at 480)495-3420.

He is a very good expert at rabbits and did a emergency surgery on my rabbit Chanel. He is available after normal business hours as well.

I have seen some of the vets listed above, but Mr Wright treated my bunny with the utmost respect and care.

Have a Hoppy Day!
