Park Veterinary Group
http://www.parkvetscardiff.co.uk/

Has practices in Cardiff, Pontypridd and Penarth.

See Barbara as she is: kind, understanding, very knowledgabe and competent.
If taking a rat you must make an appointment as otherwise some vets will not see you and will keep passing you on the list.
Most of the vets are very nice but there are the odd one or two who seem less keen on rats, so ask to see Barbara.

I don't want to put you off as Barbara is amazing but its best to know the ins and outs.

Very competent and a great vetinary surgen (he removed a lump from Opal a few months back and she healed up wonderfully. There was some bleeding into the void but with his wonderful free aftercare (which was on offer for 10 days after the removal) that was drained and she was never in any pain. :) ).
The one downside of this vets I would mention is the price. As it seems most other vets are near half the price of Park!

Carmarthen Veterinary Practice, Llysonnen Road, Llanllwch, Carmarthen - 01267 220404 - http://www.carmarthenvets.co.uk

Ask to see Catherine that is good with rats, not sure what her surname is but they'll know who you mean as she has several clients with rats and is genuinely interested in them. I had a girl go through an op to remove a mammary lump with Catherine and she was very good. The stitches were cleverly hidden so they weren't chewed. Although I haven't had a lot of experience of her yet (my previous vet moved away) she came across as knowledgable, caring and will listen to you.

The vet at Carmarthen Vets mentioned above that is good with rats is Catherine Hancock. I've had another lump removal done by her and again was very pleased with everything, tidy stitches and good after care. I've also had a guinea pig have a small skin tag type lump removed by her and was very impressed. They also don't charge too much, £48 for the rat lump removal and £55 for the guinea pig. £12 for a consultation.

I've also had another vet recommended to me that has experience with lump removals, although must add that I haven't had experience of her myself. Catherine MacPherson BVM&S MRCVS who has a keen interest in the diagnosis and care of cancer patients. She is with Davies and Potter vets in Lampeter, Ceredigion: http://www.lampetervets.co.uk/

W.J Downes
3 Blaenberllan Park Avenue
Aberystwyth
Dyfed
SY23 1PB
01970 624173

Recommended vet is Sharon (not sure of surname but there are only a few vets as it's a small practice) performed four rat neuters for me recently. I must say there were very neat and also good value at £25 each but that was with a multiple animal discount so is normally £30. She came highly recommended by another forum member who had three neuters done by her as well as other treatments.
