Hm, not sure how many people there are around me, but does anyone know of any decent ones in or near South Yorkshire? I only know of two close to me, one is awful and I would never go there, the other I only know is good with cats and dogs..

A very caring vet who specialises in the care of very small animals. Cats and rabbits are the largest animals he sees so no dogs to be seen in his surgery! Very experienced in the care and treatment of guinea pigs. Highly recommended!

Can anyone recommend a good piggie vet in (preferably) Kent or failing that, Surrey? I texted Vedra but she said there weren't any CCT ones (yet) but that was a while back...

Hi there,

I have only had my first piggy Spike for a month now and I think he is absolutely fabulous if a little crazy! I would really like to know if anyone can recommend a vet in the North East especially Co. Durham. I have other pets for who we have a lovely vet but despite his enthusiam for guinea pigs I would prefer someone with a little bit more expertise especially with neutering (if I consider it, though after reading a couple of posts I'm a little bit put off!) There seems to be a lack of piggy knowledge up here in the North!

Thanks

Hi Emma,
I don't know if you are in Liverpool itself or on the Wirral, but Village Vets near us in Mancot, Deeside, is very good for guineas and rabbits... not too far from The Wirral or the M53/M56.

Village Vets are now also in Buckley and Northop, North Wales. We have always felt that our rabbits and piggies have had good treatment there and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

I have used Battleflats for over 7 years for various animals (horses, dogs, pigs & an owl) though not yet for the piggies. I have every faith in the team there and their abilities in dealing with all animals. Will post further if I find differently with the piggies.

They deal with the animals at Flamingoland so deal with a wide variety of animals as well having one vet who specialises in accupuncture and another with an interest in homeopathy.

Hope this helps.....

For Essex I recommend Alex Maute at the South Beech Veterinary Surgery in Wickford, 01268 560660

He has an interest in small animals/exotics

Edit: Alex Maute has now left the surgery, unfortunately. I have not yet met his replacement.

Can anyone recommend a cavy savy vets in or around beeston please? - I love the Alreton Park Vets but it's such a long way (30 miles each way).

I'm looking for something a bit closer now my vets have started charging the earth, whilst becoming pants! >:(
