    WARNING: Comment from RO Member lough59: I had a horrific experience with a vet (Dr. Billy Harper, at this same clinic) who assured me he was rabbit savvy, when clearly he was not! He administered Oral Amoxicillinto my rabbit and continued to do so after I ordered him to discontinue it. When she developed severe diarrhea, he treated her again with the Amoxicillin. She languished for over 2 weeks then died in my arms on the way to the ER! The vet refuses to return my calls.
    WARNING: Comment from H.A.R.E (HRS): DO NOT ACCEPT THE SERVICES OF ANY VETERINARIAN AT THIS HOSPITAL, OTHER THAN DR. MANN, FOR YOUR RABBIT. WE KNOW OF AT LEAST ONE CASE IN WHICH ONE OF THEIR VETS--WHO CLAIMED TO BE EXPERIENCED WITH RABBITS--PRESCRIBED ORAL AMOXYCILLIN, RESULTING IN THE DEATH OF THE RABBIT.

    Comments: Patients are all my bunnies/and my ex dog Fluffy and my rainbow bridge gerbil Speedy (he was almost 4 when he died)! He...saved Preston's life TWICE when (Preston) was a baby...(helped Preston, Willy and Emilio survive) a bout of coccidia...He was willing to use a controversial drug (Chloramphenicol) to eradicate Bordetella Bronquiseptica...(Preston) made a dramatic improvement in 3 days! He's alive today because of Barsch. He (also) saved Lilly...(when) she had endometriosis...He uses Iso, and is willing to do whatever to save a bunny. He kisses them when they come in,too...and they all seem to like him -- isn't that weird?

    Comments: They see rabbits for the Tampa Bay HRS, and they see *all* of the Bunniesareus bunnies (my babies ;-)). They operated on Bundles and did it efficiently, at a very reasonable price. They are caring for Wee Willy Wonka['s] severe bladder sludge. I'm impressed by their [commitment]. They are wonderful vets, very compassionate women...and the bunnies love them.

    Always check with your state's board of licensing of businesses and professionals to review a vets license status. It will show if there are previous complaints against him and you can also file a complaint there. I found this out too late!

    WARNING: Comment from RO Member lough59: I had a horrific experience with a vet (Dr. Billy Harper, at this same clinic) who assured me he was rabbit savvy, when clearly he was not! He administered Oral Amoxicillinto my rabbit and continued to do so after I ordered him to discontinue it. When she developed severe diarrhea, he treated her again with the Amoxicillin. She languished for over 2 weeks then died in my arms on the way to the ER! The vet refuses to return my calls.

    Had ordered Flopsy to take AMOXYCILLIN orally, he died 4 weeks later. I fully believe that death was due to amoxycillin. Then when my other rabbit had an leg abcess again tried to push the ORAL AMOXYCILLIN even after I showed him my rabbit books where it says "DO NOT USE ORALLY"... never went back.

    Vet has suspended practice on rabbits.

    Cannot recommend him or the rest of the staff highly enough. Even the ladies that answer the phone are highly knowledgeable. He handles all exotic animals. Beyond my rabbit, I've brought in hamsters for surgery, my friend won't bring their ferrets anywhere else and they were trimming wombat toenails when I went in for an emergency once. Compassionate and very detail oriented vet staff.
