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.

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!
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 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.
