Default !Anyone from Halifax, NS...Know Any Good Vets?

Just wondering if anyone here lives in NS and has any recommendations on where to take my Flower girl I've found a few vets listing exotic treatment, and i just thought if anyone was in the area they might know of a particularly good vet! Thanks...

Fairview Animal Hospital. They're great. I went to a few others in the area who 'treated' hedgehogs, but they had no idea what they were doing. One I think was even scared to touch her. Fairview is really good, personable & informative. The vet will have a technician with them but you can hold your hedgie instead for check ups, which generally goes a bit smoother

I talked to a few places today on the phone, and the receptionist at Fairview definitely seem to know what she was talking about more so that the others. Thanks

You won't be disappointed there. They're nice & friendly. The vet is comfortable & knowledgeable about hedgehogs. Annabell was just in for her check up this week & I'm always happy with the service there. I do stay close to the table to help the vet out (Annabell likes to try to walk off the examining table or climb out of the weight bowl while the vet is examining, almost gave the vet a heart attack)
