      Comments: Dr. Z is one of the best rabbit veterinarians I have found so far. Very thorough, very gentle, explains everything, follows HRS standards, stays up to date on latest rabbit medicine, reasonable in price and is a very kind and nice person. She spends the time necessary to talk to her clients because she is truly concerned about their rabbit's health. Her practice is mainly exotics (birds, rabbits, reptiles, hamsters, etc.) but she sees a small [number] of dogs and cats as well. She spayed my little girl Precious, examined Billiey for his one year exam, and consulted with me about Skip's jaw abscess (after I moved 625 miles away)...truly a TOP NOTCH, highly qualified rabbit veterinarian and has many good reliable rabbit veterinarian contacts as well! Dr. Z has clients all over Kentucky and as far as Ohio and Indiana.
      She is extremely kind both to bunnies and people...very gentle in her examination of bunnies. Our Oliver never once has acted afraid of her. She recommends but does not insist on a particular test or treatment, especially if there is a large expense involved. She calls with test results and will recommend another vet if she is going out of town.

      Comments by Kristy: Dr. Deck does a great job. He treated my rabbit for 3 years. He cares for all types of animals, e.g. possums. In addition, until he opened his clinic a few months ago, Dr. Deck was a veterinary resource for the Humane Society.
      Comments by Arlene: [Dr. Deck is an] exceptionally kind man who helped with our kidney failure bun to the end. Even made a house call on Easter Sunday when she was terminal...Highly recommended for his willingness to teach and allow the rabbit owner to treat buns at home when feasible.

    I don't know if this is already listed in the linked section, but this is an Etherbun post (from sheilag1257@aol.com):

    After a long search I found a bunny savvy vet close to home. He is at the Cumberland Valley Animal Hospital in London, Ky...

    I am very new to buns. I have only hadmine since June and am stumbling through this! I just visitedDr. Jewel and was very impressed with her. (I do have otherpets--so I am not new to vets) She was very kind and good with my guysand gave me a much needed education on how to take care ofbuns. I found out what I was doing right and what I wasn'tand she also took the time to instruct my kids on how to properly pickup a bunny. It only took a few minutes for my buns to relaxand get into mischief in the exam room.:) She brought out atowel for them to sit on, so that they would not have to sitona cold table, and put then moved then moved the other tothe floor, again on a towel so he wouldn't be cold--even though hedidn't stay for long--while she examined the other. Eventhough this was my first experience, I found her very kind andknowlegable.

    The vet in London that was mentioned is AMAZING. He and I are the closest of friends. I would never take an animal anywhere else. He goes to our church and will come out at just about any hour of the night to help with anything we need.

    I just made an appointment with Dr. Gregory to get my new found little bunny checked out. I learned that Dr. Jewell in Louisville is not accepting new patients any longer and they recommended Dr. Gregory. So glad to see someone on here has had good luck there as well!
