Database of Recommended Vets

Finding a good vet for your rats is a time consuming and nerve wracking experience. Unfortunately I have heard too many horror stories about vets who just dont care about rodents and treat them awfully or know next to nothing about them. Hopefully with your help I can compile this database of vets within Australia to help all rat owners find good vets with minimal worry. If you know of or go to a vet whom you think is good enough to reccommend to other rat owners, email me with their contact details and I will add it to this database.

Don’t worry if your vets are not located in the cities below, this is just a starting point and I will add cities and towns as the database grows. Please note that I have not had personal experience with most of these vets and I will not be held responsible if one turns out to be less than reputable. However I will remove vets from the list if they turn out to be duds. Always check with the vet in question before you take your rat to them, to make sure that you believe they can treat your rat with the respect and skill that it deserves.
