I'd like to recommend Frances Punt at Ouse Valley Vets. They have their main practice at St Ives but have others in St Neots and Brampton all in Cambridgeshire. She has done a couple of lumpectomy's for me recently and did a great job, her surgical skills are excellent and she's willing to try new treatments. They don't charge the earth either and offer a £50 flat rate for all small furries surgery (within reason obviously) Contact details for each practice are below

Both exotics specialists, and care about ratties. The other vets in Cambridge seem to phone them for advice!

Seconded.
Both are lovely, no-nonsense, highly experienced Vets that my rats always greatly enjoy weeing all over. Marion Ford is what Jill Pearson once described as 'A surgeon with a capital S'...she has done a lot of research into best practice relating to rat-surgery.
Emma Jarrett and Caren Stubbington at the same practice are both very good too....if there is anything they are not sure about they will check with their more experienced 'exotics' colleagues, and always radiate a sense of caring.

I would like to recommend;

Joe at
562 High Road
Benfleet
Essex
SS7 5RF
Tel: 01268 793843
http://www.riversidevets.com/benfleet-h ... et-hr.html
Emergency Tel:
01268 793843

Joe is really good with small animals, she has done a great job removing Bubbles' tumor & has also put a splint in a gerbil’s leg as well as spaying one.
Their prices are ok and Joe does give discounts with small animals as prices tend to be high in general. Joe has also been brilliant with our dogs.

I'd like to put forward the Luton branch of the Icknield Veterinary Group. I've used them several times now, with conditions ranging from resp infections to pyometra and aggressive tail infections, and they've been very good throughout. Consultations have been quick and efficient, but not in a cold 'get you out the door' way - they've always had time to answer questions, and have listened (and mostly agreed) when I've offered my opinion too, including increasing baytril dosages and the like.

Their general prices are very good - £22 total for a consultation and two weeks' worth of baytril - and the two surgeries that I've had them in for have been very well-performed and healed up quickly (a spaying and a full tail amputation). They cost £66 and £132 respectively; I have no idea if that's normal or expensive, but I certainly got what I paid for!

As an added bonus, several of the staff have remarked that they love rats and just don't see many any more :) (My lot often get a little extra fuss during consultations :love:)

I would like to recommend the Barn Veterinary Practice in Ipswich for those of you living in Suffolk. They have two practices, one at Copdock and one on Ashcroft Road. The practice at Copdock is registered with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons as a small animal specialist but the same staff work at both practices. The have an emergency service and open on a Saturday and Sunday morning as well. What's better, they are very reasonably priced- their quote for my boys to be neutered was the cheapest and it included all the meds and aftercare unlike some... (one quote was £75 just for the surgery, plus more for meds and more for aftercare!). My mum has used them for six years and they have always been brilliant- friendly but also professional.
