    I see Dr. Nur, she is wonderful and I've never had a question that she wasn't able to answer. She's very thorough, and I insist on seeing her when I go in. I find that Dr. Axelson knows the least about bunnies off the top of his head. Dr. Mavromatis also impressed me.

    Edit: My problem with these vets is that they contradict each other if you see different ones, so it gets confusing when different vets see your bunnies. Dr. Nur is on maternity leave and I've since stopped going to them for anything other than getting their teeth clipped. My new vet is the Greenwood Park Animal Hospital.

    * They are open 24 hours.


    They are not a specialized rabbit clinic but they treat bunnies too. Wetook our rabbit with an eye infection there and they were great.

    The Links Animal Hospital specializes in rabbits.

    ***We take our bunns to see either Dr. Guerrard Roberts or Dr. Claire Maine. Both are rabbit saavy.Rockwood vet clinic is about 10 minutes outside of Guelph. I trust no one else to look after our bunns!(Or any of our other pets for that matter!):) Excellent vets and very knowledgable!***

    Dr Daren Auger

    I took Yofi to see Dr Auger when it was time for Yofi to be neutered. Dr Auger was amicable, easy to talk to, extremely helpful, very knowledgeable about rabbits, and handled Yofi wonderfully. He performed the neuter the following Monday with no problems; Yofi went home with me that evening and was in great shape. Dr Auger handled post-op pain issues well, and told me to contact him if there were any concerns. I'd recommend Dr Auger to anyone who is looking for a good, rabbit-savvy vet.

    Dr. Lisa McKinnon is Rupert and Penelope's vet. She is great, as is the entire staff there. Very rabbit-savvy! Dr. McKinnon spayed Penelope and neutered Rupert. She also saved Rupert's life when he had bloat.

    This is my new vet and I absolutely love her, you can tell how much she cares about animals and she handles my buns with such care.

    I live just by lawrence and the DVP so she's really close to me even if it does say scarborough.

    Edited to add that we took the kittens there and they had a stool test, but the lab they used messed up and said the kittens didn't have worms when they clearly did (There were worms in the stool sample that was sent in for testing,) I had to add that in because it shook my confidence in them, so if your rabbit gets testing here and they send it to the lab be on guard.

    But ONLY Dr Heather Hannick, she was great with our boys and owns bunnies herslef. Even Mr Carrots relaxed enough around her to be examined and he hates people.

    I cannot reccomend the other vets there as we lost baby boo after one of them treated him, but Dr Hannick is excellent and the best we found in London

    Neuter: around the 120 mark.

    Spay: 184 (tax in)


    Had angoras at one point. Seems confident with buns; willing to suggest home remedies when I can't afford the bills.

    EDIT, OCT 2008 >>> Really conservative about pain meds. Refused pain meds to my girl post-spay. Had to go back next day and beg for them. Be sure to demand aggessive pain management!!!


    Update Sept 2010:
    AVOID FOR ANYTHING BUT SPAY AND NEUTER
    Deal only with Dr. Bassi.

    Dr. Munn is the only doctor in the practice and she's fantastic. She has her own bunnies and isextremely knowledagble. She does spays and neuters as well as provide medical care for the Rescue Rabbit organization here in Ontario.

    She really knows her stuff and I can't go on enough about how great she is. She explains everything and I trusted her right away with Oliver. Instead of picking him up, she got right down on her knees to check him out because he was obviously nervous.

    She was open to hearing about things I read on the forum and about trying new treatments if there was something she didn't think about that someone here on the forum mentioned.

    First, I'd recommend Campus Estates in Guelph. (Southside Plaza, #1460 Gordon St, Guelph Phone: (519) 837-1212/Fax: (519) 837-0209) They are amazing. They saved Finley when we had a rough spot a few weeks ago. They were great to work with, very attentive and willing to help or answer questions whenever.

    As far as the followinggoes (for those in North Bay)...

    I like Dr. Wasilewicz. She is very gentle, and is willing to work with you. She takes your thoughts, experience, and research into account and doesn't make you feel like an idiot. The downside - she doesn't do dental work.

    However, I wouldn't under any circumstance return to the Airport Animal Clinic. We had a rough experience there. There was a complete misdiagnosis, and a wait and see mentality when my bunny was suffering. Obviously not everyone will have this experience, but it was enough for me to look elsewhere and un-recommend them. (sorry).

    I've also been to the North Bay Animal Hospital (1875B Seymour, North Bay, 705-476-8387). They were decent, but I much prefer Dr. Wasilewicz. North Bay Animal Hospitalis more expensive and had a tendency to fluff me off with some concerns (which turned out to be valid).

    Kahlin, I can see why you would unrecommend Airport, as both doctors there talk pretty quick, and don't take your comments and research into account. It seems like they only give a bun a cursory overview.

    What pleased me about them was the fact that they tried to work with my budget to some degree. The original estimate for a wound stichup was in the $300 range, and they were willing to work down to $240. However, that was still out of my range, so they showed me how to do the next best thing at home.


    I do not like the conversations I have, but I appreciate someone who understands my financial situation, and is willing to suggest alternative solutions that .


    Sept 2010: Recommended for speutering only :grumpy:. Deal only with Dr. Bassi.

    When I was dealing with bunny challenges, I had not yet heard of Dr. Teresa. She will be my next rabbity vet.

    UPDATE:
    Dr. O'Connor
    Seymour Animal Hospital.
    North Bay, ON.
    - distinct possibility for rabbit help.

    Hi Jennifer,

    Wondering if you've had any more experiences with this clinic. I have 7 buns and have been taking them to Amherst Vet Clinic at markham Road. For me I find there's too many vets. I see a different one each time and often with the same rabbit. On one occasion I was told to try a certain treatment and we had problems. I called back and was told They didn't use that particular treatment!!!! One doesn't always know what the other is doing. Another time I called for advice re. meds they gave me and they didn't call me back. So I'm looking for a new vet. Thanks Jenn

    Hi All,

    Called for a quote from Campus Estates in Guelph, not sure what the going rate is for a spay/neuter, they qouted us $79 for a consultation, and then $379 for the surgery. Will try the Rockwood vet to compare rates...
