Please post good vets you have been to in Nova Scotia. 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.

I've seen both Dr. Benoit & Dr. Dibblee, both who were very helpful & seemed competent in what they were talking about. Dr. Dibblee also sent me home with some photocopies about habitat, humidity & nutrition that were both helpful & in line with what we say is currently best practices here on the forum.

I am living in Nova Scotia at the moment and wondering if anyone else has had any good experiences with vets in the area. This thread is a few years old now and I would like to take my baby for her first checkup
