    Hi there, Can anyone recommend a Vet in North East England who specializes in Guinea pigs?

    One of our pigs has a suspected ovarian cyst, however while the vet we saw was lovely, she admitted they do not see many pigs and we'd only like to explore surgery as a last option, any help would be greatly appreciated!

    (we are located in Darlington)

    Hmm. I will tag some North East members (I have a bad memory for geography!). @Stewybus @AbiS @Elwickcavies -they spring to mind as in your area.

    I run Tees Valley Guinea Pig Rescue & we recommend Dominika at Jacqui Patersons, Stockton. Just off the A66 near Makro (Ingleby Barwick junction). She's been treating one of my girls for ovarian cysts. 7-year-old Pixie has had them drained 4 times, on 2 occasions having 168 ml & 62 ml drained. Pixie has also undergone hormone treatment which unfortunately had no effect. She's too old for an op at over 7 years but if your girl is younger there's a chance it would be more successful on her. Dominika has done lots of successful ops on our piggies & is the best piggy vet I know in the Teesside/South Durham area. She is also on the forum vet locator x

    I've been AWOL from the board recently but would like to add Harriet Nicholson, from Village Vets Potters Bar, to the list
    Vets in Potters Bar – Cockfosters Vet – Hertfordshire Vets – Village Vet
    After a bad experience of the vets in Nazeing I looked elsewhere. Harriet has her own guinea pigs and has been really good with Pansy with her respiratory problems. I go there no without hesitation and have confidence in what she is doing.

    Is she the best vet in the area? I've been wanting to switch and they are about 20 mins away from me.

    Any other recommendations for this area?

    Can anyone recommend any vets near the South border of Hertfordshire and the North West border of Greater London? I want to switch to more piggie experienced vets, without driving to Northampton (most brutal journey ever for me).
