Since I posted last I moved even farther away from Harper's Vet and found it necessary to find somewhere closer to home.

We now see Dr. Neufeld at the Calgary Trail Pet Hospital who has been really great.
He did recommend Science Diet, and I had to ask for revolution, but otherwise he's been great.

"I go to Calgary Avian & Exotic Pet Clinic"

I took Harper here when we were in Calgary on business and they were great. They did lecture me a LOT for letting her snooze in my sweater, but were good overall. They snuck her in really quickly because she wasn't well and we walked away happy and soon to be healthy!

They book appointments late and have a store there- my appointment was at 8:30pm, and the store stayed open so I could buy some supplies that the local pet stores were missing.

Here is their website: Highly recommend them!!
100% Agree - I have gone there twice. They were amazing both times. Once was a check up & another time an emergency. They were able to book me in the same day that I called. I can't recommend them enough.

I have gone to Park Veterinary Centre for many years. They are knowledgeable and compassionate. I've seen both Dr. Bousquet and Dr. Meckelborg. I would highly recommend them.

Calgary's Avenida All Pet Clinic is where I take Finnick the hedgie along with all of my other exotics. Doctor Phillips is very knowledgeable across a wide array of animals. She is however, extremely set in her ways. I personally don't think this is a persistently negative trait, but it's good to be aware that you may need to put up a fight if you have strong opposing views (such as on mite treatment).
She will suggest operations other vets won't if she believes it is in the animal's best interest, and she will then perform the operation herself, which is excellent in the case of cancerous growths. She operated on my dwarf hamster's ear to remove a lump.
She is rather expensive (at last visit ~$80 for just a consult of an exotic animal with bloodwork, fecal exam etc adding to the total) but I definitely trust her and I know she and her team genuinely care about the wellbeing of my pets.

I took Tinkerball to Calgary North, and they were very kind and helpful. The doctor I saw knew a lot about hedgehogs and respected Tinkerball and the fact that she was terrified and in pain and that I had only had her for one week so I wasn't much comfort either. I was very happy that she was given pain medication, and so was she.

However, I would not go to Calgary North unless it was an emergency, as I ended up spending nearly $500 when all was said and done. I spoke to my friend who has experience with hedgies, beardies, ferrets etc., and she told me that Avenida is about half the cost of Calgary North for the same procedures and medications.

Also, I was quoted $90 as a consultation fee, and then on my bill it was $110. When I took my dwarf hamster to Avenida, the consultation was only $80 and I paid what I was quoted.

DeWinton pet hospital was wonderful! Lindsey in reception was very friendly and fit us in for an emergency that day. Obviously I really appreciated that.

We saw Dr. Eva. She was extremely through, knowledgeable and very personable. She made sure I knew exactly what was being done. My hedggie required anesthesia and she knew I was nervous about it. She took the time to do everything in her power to reassure me.

They told me she would be finished with him in about 40 minutes and she was done in 20 minutes.

I am very pleased and will continue to return with our hedgehog

Dr Heather Steele and Dr Tanya Marrazzo both helped me with my little guy - they know their stuff and are comfortable with our prickly friends! We just had to put him down (3.5years old with lymphoma) and they were caring and compassionate for the whole journey.
