Hi @VickiA I have just noticed on the vet locator map you have Rob of Severn Edge Vets ( who is my vet and who I recommended ) listed as being at Bridgenorth branch. The bridgenorth branch is the biggest and where you go for ooh but Rob works out of the Much Wenlock branch, he is the piggy savvy vet. Can this be ammended? Thank you :)

Hi everyone. I was wondering if anyone could recommend a vet for our guinea pig who appears to be having problems with his teeth/mouth. He has already been under anaesthesia at our vets who can't see anything wrong in there and I was hoping to find a vet with experience of dental issues in guinea pigs. We live just outside of Portsmouth.
I have seen that the cat and rabbit clinic is highly recommended and could potentially travel there, but would like to see if there is anywhere a bit closer first.
TIA x

Simon and Kim maddock at The cat and rabbit clinic are by far the best vets in the Country for dental issues as they are able to do conscious dentals so there’s no need for anastasia and the piggy is usually eating again within the hour.

I appreciate that it’s a long way but if you can get there, it will be well worth it. @Bill & Ted used to travel there with her dental pigs all the way from Cornwall.

To my knowledge, members from your area that have tried to go local have all ended up in Northampton in the end. :(
Cat and Rabbit Care Clinic | Northlands Vets

More piggy dental vets are sadly desperately needed. :(

Definitely Cat & Rabbit in Northampton. We're currently on our way there now and we travel from North Wales. Simon and Kim Maddock are the best in my opinion. 👍

I agree, with dentals problems they are amazing and relatively cheap too as you are not paying for GA as it’s all done consciously with the piggie just sat on the table

Is Stanhope exoctic vets practise classed as a goto? They’re in Darlington and often deal with small animals including guinea pigs :)

@sport_billy Can Ivan Crotaz be added to Blackwater Valley Vets in Camberley? He is an actual pig and rabbit specialist and is at the Gordon House site every Tuesday and I’m sure my piggy would be on her way out if it wasn’t for him!

I see that you already have the Beaumont Sainsbury Animal Hospital listed already (in Camden, North London) but you only list Nadene Stapleton - there are actually two other exotics vets there in addition to Nadene who I have worked with previously (as a vet student), and who have both treated my own guinea pigs. Jo Hedley and Vicki Baldrey - both very experienced with guinea pigs and I trust them both completely with my pigs! I would love to see them both added to the BSAH entry!

@sport_billy
Blackwater Valley Vets, Gordon House (already on the list) have a specialist rabbit and Guinea pig vet in every Tuesday and he is just so lovely, both me and my mum are a bit in love, could his name be added? Ivan Crotaz. He was just brilliant. Really knew his stuff, clearly loved the animals, and had the best ‘bedside’ manner and took so much time explaining, discussing and LISTENing in these horrid times of not being able to go in. He also engineered me being able to be with BB as she was pts, which they don’t normally do with small furries atm.
