How to Choose a Rabbit-Experienced Vet
The time to find a veterinarian is now, not when your rabbit is sick and you are forced to take what you can get. A good place to start in finding your rabbit’s veterinarian is to ask for recommendations from pet shop personnel, other rabbit owners and rabbit special interest groups. Then move on to interviewing the veterinarians. The secret here is not to ask “Do you see rabbits?” but, rather, “Who in town should I take my rabbit to?” If the vet volunteers “We see rabbits,” jot down his or her name. Take the time to call around in a radius from your home that you feel would be close enough to take your rabbit in case of a problem. Select two or three and call for an appointment to meet them. Most hospitals charge for an office visit, but some waive the fee for a quick non-medical consultation. Don’t be afraid to ask questions.
You need to have a way to discern his or her level of knowledge and experience with rabbits and, just as important, your ability to communicate with each other. A good rabbit veterinarian will have a working knowledge of rabbit anatomy and physiology, nutrition and the common diseases and syndromes of rabbits. Rabbits should make up a sizable part of the vet’s practice. Unless you find a specialty practice, it is unlikely that rabbits will make up a significant portion of the patients, but 10 percent would be an acceptable minimum.
