Default Hello from KCMO!!!

Hello, I am the hedgemom of 10 month old Miss Nellie (AKA Nell-Bell)! After reading through these posts for a while now, I am happy to be a new member of Hedgehog Central and wanted to introduce myself! If anybody lives in the Kansas City, Missouri area or near and has any veterinarian recommendations for hedgies please let me know! I have been on the lookout for a vet that is very good with hedgehogs.

Hey neighbor!! I'm in KCKS. I've used two vets for my hedgies & love them both. The first is Mariposa Veterinary Wellness Center, which is my main vet. Mostly because I'd already started going to them for my dog & really liked the staff there. Their exotics vet is Dr. Burcham & she's really nice. The other one is Olathe Animal Hospital, the exotics vet is Dr. Peuser. I absolutely loved him & he helped me out a lot earlier this year with my hedgehog that had fatty liver disease. He seems more experienced, IMO, and I really liked how he worked with me on choices & explained pros/cons of the different options when Pancake was sick. Dr. Burcham seems a tad less experienced, but I really do like both of them. I keep info for both in case one is available sooner than the other.

And just in case, though hopefully you never need the info...I also found an emergency vet in the area that's open nights, weekends, & holidays, and willing to see hedgehogs! This is their website - http://animalemergencycenterkc.com/ I had to take Pancake in once & was astounded at how cheap they were. It was $85 for the office visit, when I expected over $100, at least. She got sub-q fluids & antibiotics, & the total of the visit was around $160 (ended up paying $115 as I was discounted for taking some wild baby bunnies to a wildlife rehab for the vet ). Very valuable service! The vet didn't know much at all about hedgehogs, but had at least handled them before & was more than willing to do research while we waited, which I really appreciated.

Hello from a northlander!

I've used AEC for my dogs, before, and love them. I saw them recommended on another board here. I'm a future hedgie owner, so I'm picking up all the info I can right now. Following to see if there are any other vet recommendations.

Another Kansan here...LuLu and I (along with Spouse) live in Shawnee, and also can highly recommend Dr. Peuser at Olathe Animal Clinic. I don't spend as much time on the forum as I used to, but I'm still enchanted by hedgehogs in general, and LuLu in particular. She's still the star of our show. Welcome to the fascinating world of hedgies
