A reminder that we have a published rabbit-friendly vet directory on our website, which is free for you to use.
Vets are assessed thoroughly, and not everyone who applies passes and is included. Any complaints about member practices are taken very seriously and fully investigated.
A lot of work goes into maintaining this rabbit-friendly directory by the practices, who complete a huge assessment, and our fabulous Specialist Vet Richard, who reviews every single one.
It might not be perfect, but it is frequently reviewed and improved, and it is currently the best system.
There is also some guidance on the same webpage about what to ask vet practice before you register with them.
If your vet is rabbit-friendly but not listed, please ask them to join and apply.
If you have any questions or concerns about a vet on the directory, please get in touch with us via email@example.com
Whilst on this subject, we have been made aware that some rabbit owners are travelling to vets specifically to have ‘conscious dentals’, but this is not something we think is appropriate.
It is important that rabbits are always fully anaesthetised when they have their molars (cheek teeth) trimmed, and under no circumstances should incisors (front teeth) ever be clipped; they should always be burred or filed.
