Bowmanville Veterinary Clinic
2826 HWY 2
BOWMANVILLE, ON L1C 3K5
(905)623-4431
http://www.bowmanvilleveterinaryclinic.com/
Dr. Brigette Rudolf, Dr. Lauren Brownell


This vet's office is the best! They are very caring, accommodating and do a thorough job with reasonable prices. They can usually get you in same day, or within a few days.

Dr. Rudolf is exceptional, she really takes great pride in her work and does not rush you out the door like many other vets. The vet themself does a follow up call the next day to ensure things are going well. A few of my pets have seen her and she's always been great.

Dr. Brownell is also great. When I brought my hedgie Moka in with a lump and was given an estimate of $400 worth of work and testing that would need to be done I was devastated. She called me a few days later and said if I couldn't afford to do all the testing that they could try some other things that would be more affordable. I was very appreciative.

Even with trying different things Moka never recovered and I made an appt. to have him put down but he didn't make it, this vets office were more than accommodating in taking him and providing a burial all at a minimal cost.
All of the employees were very considerate and understanding, the experience truly help me feel better.

This vet's office is great for people who live in the Durham Region and do not want to travel to the Links Rd. in Toronto.

Prior to living in Durham, I lived in Scarborough and would take my hogs to the Links Rd. animal clinic, I found them be overly expensive, and one of the vets there (Dr. Hanadie Nur) determined my hedgehog had mites and over $300 in treatment later, another vet at the same clinic (Dr. Evan Mavromatis) determined that she never had mites in the first place. It was frustrating to say the least and I always found it was difficult to get an appointment that wasn't a week away.

Amherst Animal Hospital - Toronto

It's on Eglinton Ave and Markham Rd. I went to Dr. Robin Lane, who came highly recommended to me by other hedgehog owners. He's very nice and knowledgeable, and squeezed me into his day when I had an emergency with my little one.

I completely agree! The Links Road Bird and Animal Clinic is wonderful.
I have taken both of my hedgehogs there and the vets were knowledgeable, helpful, and very caring towards my hedgehogs.
I would absolutely recommend them. They are expensive, but worth it.

May be the obvious answer for Guelph, ON; but the OVC exotics clinic (attached to the small animal clinic) has no problems at all handling hedgehogs 24/7. I took Reggie there this weekend for an emergency visit and they saw him right away, following up with me via phone fairly regularly. They get hedgehogs somewhat frequently and are knowledgeable about their various issues. Plus it's part of one of the best veterinary colleges in the world!

She was not afraid to admit when she lacked experience or knowledge about hedgies and conferred with her colleagues who had done more exotic work until she found a treatment that worked for us.
I just wanted to say Dr. Renee Fleming is still around four years later and great! She coaxed Reggie out of his huffy ball with liver treats, which he loved so much he did some crazy gymnastics to annoint as much as possible. Very professional, will definitely keep her as my regular hedgehog vet.

I have had three hedgies in the past 6 years, unfortunately all of them required vet visits as they aged and their health declined. We went to several vets who claimed to have experience with hedgies in the Ottawa/Gatineau region until we found one that really knew what he was talking about, Dr. Daren Auger at:

Carling Animal Hospital
2268 Carling Avenue
(at Woodroffe)
Ottawa, Ontario K2B 7G1
Tel: (613)725-3439
Fax: (613)725-3219
[email protected]

Not only does he know hedgies, he is a wonderful, compassionate vet who goes that extra mile for your pet's health. We drove to see him from over an hour away and it was worth it. Knowing that your hedgie is in the capable hands of Dr. Auger is worth the drive. And at $78 the exotic pet fee is very reasonable.
