PLEASE don't call the vets listed here to ask for free advice.  Instead, make an appointment for your animal.  One very good rat vet asked to have his name removed from a referral list because so many people who were unwilling to take their animal to the clinic kept calling him for advice when he was extremely busy.  We don't want that to happen again. Please be respectful of the vets on this list.




Tiny Toes Rat Rescue of New Mexico doesn't make guarantees about the quality of care the veterinarians on this list will provide for your animal(s). This is merely a list of veterinarians who have stated they do treat rats. It's up to you to contact the clinic to ask about the veterinarian's background and experience prior to taking your animal for treatment. When possible, we will provide information on background and experience.
