    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

    [url]Http://webph.com [/url]

    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.

    I've not seen Dr. Wright. It's always good to have a recommended back up.:wink

    I've used the following vet. He was recommended by Brambley Hedge Rabbit Rescue. They've used him for years. (and I now see that Dr. Wright is also on their list of recommended vets.)

    I am very sad to say that Dr. Kevin Wright of Wright Bird and Exotic Pet House Calls, and the Arizona Exotic Animal Hospital before that, passed away on September 26, 2013. He was an excellent and very kind vet for our bunnies. I'm sure he will be hard to replace.

    The exact cause of his death is not yet known. He went into the hospital with some pains, slipped into a coma, and passed away within just a few days.

    If you are looking for low-cost spay and neuter for rabbits the best I've found is at Santa Cruz Vet Clinic on 12th ave. It's pretty far on the south side but for $75 it's the best in town! I've had a few bunnies fixed there and they were knowledgeable, helpful, and very caring. The doctor is the same one that used to perform S/N at the humane society for $75 so he is just continuing this service (the humane society no longer offers S/N to privately owned rabbits). They do not do general rabbit vet care, just S/N.

    Ahh all these are so far from me but I guess thats what I get for living in San Tan Valley. Thanks for they great list guys! The campus for compassion ASPCA does rabbit s/n still, I got a quote from them a month ago I just forgot the price. I do know they don't do s/n on those mobile clinics. (which sucks because they are here almost all the time!)

    I really liked Dr. Holmes knowledge. I'm way west of Phoenix so probably would have the same drive distance to him as you! He would be the one to go to if an emergency popped up with one of your bunnies. Thankfully its been very rare that I've had to go.

    Thank you for the recommendation, I will definitely keep his information in case a problem popped up! I've never had to go to a vet before (I guess that is a good thing(although it would be nice to have a yearly check up for my girls)!) So if there is an emergency do you have to pay them to get your pet looked at or do they bill you?
