Default Ontario vets

Please post good vets you have been to in Ontario. Name the vet clinic as well as the name of the veterinarian you saw as sometimes a vet clinic can have both good and bad vets. Put the city as the subject line.

Thanks

Edited by Nancy to add: This is just a note to add to hedgielover's post, that Dr Munn is very highly recommended by both new and long time hedgie owners. In the Toronto area he is the most recommended vet.

I would also like to add. At the Burloak Animal Clinic above:

Dr Lisa McKinnen is also wonderful with Hedgehogs. Very professional, kind and knowledgeable.

The clinic itself is well run, friendly staff and equipped thoroughly.

Highly recommended!

Default Guelph

Dr. Renee Fleming
Guelph Animal Hospital, Guelph

She specializes in small animals-- not necessarily exotics or hedgehogs, although she has had hedgies of her own. She has been very committed to helping Beck in diagnosing his congestive heart failure and finding an effective treatment. 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 am not sure how to post this(mods feel free to edit)... I would like to post my NON RECOMMENDATION for Dr. Wolfgang Zenker at:

Burloak Animal Clinic
3060 Lakeshore Rd. West
Oakville
L6L 1J2
(905)-827-1171

I agree that the clinic staff was friendly and the clinic was clean, however Dr.Zenker offered no support for Daisy when she was sick, looked her quickly over and was VERY quick to inform me that "she had the wobbler thing"... he had NO bedside manner, flipped Daisy over and poked at her for less than 2 minutes before asking me "what do you want me to do?"... well I would like you to tell me your thoughts and what we can do to make her comfortable.

I also found the clinic highly over priced for a quick exam ($85), as well as their medications, which were outrageously over priced for 1 5mg tablet of prednisone (I can purchase a bottle of 50 tablets from my cat's vet for the same price they charged for 1 tablet).

I believe at one point Dr.Zenker may have been up to date on treatments, however as of our appointment in September of 2011, I believe that is no longer the case.

I would like to repeat that due to our experience I would CERTAINLY NOT recommend Dr.Zenker.

The Links Road Bird and Animal Clinic

Toronto, Ontario

(at Yonge & 401)
Ph: 416-223-1165

Dr. Rick Axelson, Dr. Evan Mavromatis & Dr. Hanadie Nur

As a new hedgehog owner, we have never need to take our hedgehog to this clinic, however the doctors here have been treating our reptiles for several years and I have the greatest confidence in them. The clinic specializes in exotics animals of all sorts, both cold and warm blooded, scaled, furred and feathered. From conversations with the staff and doctors I know they are familiar with and do treat hedgehogs.
