    Comments: [Dr. Clark] is a wonderful bunny vet, very knowledgeable but also will listen to any suggestions we may have. She helped our Biggles through a nasty abscess that he got from a fight wound last year. [The clinic has] 24/7 emergency care, but there are several vets at this clinic and Dr. Clark is the only bunny vet.

    Comments by Cathy: Early in 2004 Gwynedd Vet re-opened in their new state-of-the-art facility. (Original building was destroyed in a fire.) They offer 24-hour emergency service, 7 days a week. (Do not assume all doctors are experienced with rabbits.) This is the vet I use. I have seen both Laura and Alan. Laura specializes in exotics and is very knowledgeable. She is considered the clinic's "bunny vet". She maintains many contacts with professors and colleagues at her veterinary school. Alan used to be my regular vet before Gwynedd had an exotics specialist. He is a very good and sensitive, caring person.

    Comments: (Do not assume all doctors are experienced with rabbits.) 24 hour emergency service. I have used Anna Edling when she worked at Gwynedd Veterinary Hospital. She is very good and keeps up-to-date on rabbits by going to seminars, etc. I was very impressed with her work. When I had diet questions regarding Nutmeg, she copied her notes from a seminar and sent them to me. Anna also diagnosed and treated Alice when she broke both back feet. Hickory appears to be a VERY BUSY hospital and I have no personal experience with leaving a bunny overnight.

    Comments by Libby: Dr. Ibrahim is a wonderful doctor and surgeon. He has been treating a very bad case of head tilt in one of my bunnies for a few months now and has operated on my other bunny twice for fatty tumors. His bedside manner is amazing and his techs and staff are wonderful too. They really go above and beyond for my buns. Dr. Ibrahim seems to really care about my buns and I couldn't have gotten through the past few months without him.

Ardmore Animal Hospital

Ardmore, PA. 19003

Phone: 610.642.1160

This animal hospital is located in the Greater Philadelphia suburbs. Zeke and Misty see Dr. Peters for check-ups. Zeke was also neutered, and they both get their nails trimmed,here. I've had nothing but fabulous experiences with them. Everyone seems very knowledgeable, and very sweet and accomodating, as well. Highly recommended!

I don't how how amazingly rabbit savy the doc is, but he was a hugehelp when my dutch rabbit, Gideon came down with something odd andstopped eating, drinking, and was almost 2 pounds underweight and feltliek a skeleton in my arms. They were able to take me almostimmediately and Giddy looked 80% by the next day after multipleinjections and the medications perscribed. Within' a week he was hisold self again and put on at least a pound, maybe pound and half fromhis perscriubed diet. I will definitely go back here again. They askedme to call in 3 days and update them. I was at work that mornign andplanned on calling in he evening when I got home, but when I got homthey had already called asking if Gideon was alright. I thuogh that wasvery nice of them.


Mobile Vet Rainbow Clinic

Also a great place. They do house calls and emergencies at all hours ofthe night. They were able to repair a backwards overlap of my one dutchrabbit Artemis's teeth. After one visit and a perscribed diet of acrapload of timothy hay, Artie's teeth actually returned to normal.When I brought her back for a checkup, they said she doesn't need themtrimmed again, she's fine. And since we didn't do anything we're notgoign to charge you. Nice. Artemis went on to win 2 grand championlegs.


I would highly reccomend both of these vets.

Dr. Wagner is wonderful. I just started taking my boys to see him backin February, and I absolutely love him! His clients are mostly exotics,and he is also an experienced veterinary surgeon. He is the vet thatperformed the extraction of Alfred's incisors. Additionally Dr.Wagnerallows all of his clients to watch the surgical procedures that heperforms on their pets.

Hi Vanessa,

I live in the Berks County area near Sinking Spring. I was searching for the best qualified bunny vet in the area. You mentioned Willow Creek in Leesport, PA. I adopted a 1 year old female Rex bunny named Pancake. She has never been spayed and we would like to get it done. We were thinking of taking her to the Berks County Humane Society to get her spayed since maybe they had some experience with spaying bunnies. We love this bunny very much and want to make sure the place we get her spayed is qualified. The closest place we were looking at was that place in Downington, PA listed on the recommended list of rabbit vets. That is about an hour drive away though. Since you mentioned Willow Creek in Leesport, PA, I was wondering if that would be a good place to take my bunny to be spayed. Your opinion would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Michelle

Dr. Donato and his staff are so caring and knowledgeable about rabbits and all exotics. They look at all of the options for treatment, from high cost, to lost budget, and help you decide what option is best for your particular situation. I've been bringing Tiny to Dr. Donato for his whole life, and won't go anywhere else.

I live just over the PA border in WV, but I travel for my exotics vets. The only people I'll see are:

Dr. Robert Wagner
VCA Fox Chapel
1152 Freeport Rd
Pittsburgh, PA 15238
(412) 781-6446

or

Dr. Mike Hutchinson
Animal General
20411 Route 19
Cranberry Twp, PA 16066

(724) 776-7930

I see Dr. Mike for my rabbits and Dr. Wagner for my reptiles, but I've seen Dr. Wagner with the rabbits in a pinch and I have learned more from him then from any other vet I've ever used. He's extremely hands on!

I second the good vote for Radnor Vet Hospital. I take my cats and turtles there as well. The staff is friendly and work so well with the animals. Dr. Donato is fabulous! They are very careful with the exams so they don't miss anything on an animal that likes to hide illness. I feel that a thumbs up from them really means that my animal is healthy.
