Dr. Jewell at
Allpets Veterinary Center
1219 Dorsey Lane
Louisville, KY 40223

True to the name, this vet treats all species of pets, except horses. When one of our first ferrets had an Insulinoma attack in the middle of the night, she was not our regular vet. But we were so desperate for help, that we were scouring the internet for any helpful phone numbers. We stumbled upon her clinic, called, and were directed to an "after hours emergency" number. We called it, expecting to be redirected to another small animal emergency clinic that wouldn't help us. Nope - It turned out to be her personal phone number. She talked us through what to do, and had us call her back to confirm that what she had said to do was helpful. Needless to say, she became our regular vet the next day. She actually treats all of our fur babies (has included two ferrets, a dog and a cat, so far) as patients with personalities and feelings. She treats our ferrets as ferrets, not "little cats" like our previous vets. And she actually gets down on the floor with our 13-YO lab mix and does his exams/vaccinations down there, where he's comfortable, instead of having us lift him up on an exam table.

We love Dr. Jewell!

Dr. Bob Dahlhausen, D.V.M., M.S.
Avian & Exotic Animal Medicine
5989 Meijer Dr., Suite 11
Milford, OH 45150
(513) 576-1990

Dr. Bob is awesome! He specializes in Avian medicine but he's great with other exotics also. He treats everything from Hamsters and Sugar Gliders right up to skunks and Fox. I take my Fennec to him as well as all my skunks and I know of at least one other Fennec that he treats.

He's a very compassionate vet and doesn't believe in putting an animal to sleep unless he's exhausted all other avenues and there is absolutely no hope and the animal is no longer living a good life.

My Fennec came to me with a horrible ear infection. Dr. Bob has had her in his office since before Christmas. The infection had gone into the bone by the time she came to me. He's been unable to find an antibiotic that will completely clear it up (although he has been able to keep it from getting worse). Because his office is over an hour away from me and I was having to take her there twice a week, he offered to keep her in his office and continue to run cultures on her until he finds the right antibiotic

I would recommend him to anyone. He's located close to Cincinnati

OT but has he tried antibiotic beads? They are used to treat lumpy jaw as it's an infection that goes into the jaw bones, it's the most affective treatment. They implant the beads and they time release right where the infection is. So same idea they could be implanted into the bone where the infection went. Might be more difficult on such a small critter though.

Actually yes, that's why I was having to bring her back to him several times a week - so he could implant more of the beads. Unfortunately, they seem to have stopped the infection from getting worse but they aren't making her any better. He's talking about taking a culture to a human hospital to see if they can have any more luck identifying and treating the infection....

Oh that's too bad. I know it doesn't always work but it's saved a lot more animals than before they started being used.

Darn, was hoping against hope that someone from Nebraska(current location) or Missouri(where we plan to move) would have posted a reference to someone in those areas to the list.
The vet in Nebraska City is the one that came out and vaccinated the raccoons and foxes when we lived down at Lake WaConDa, but I don't know if they are still around.

have you tried looking up all the vets in the area nearby you?
call and ask if they treat exotics.

also, you can try calling a local zoo and ask who they use for vets.

Dr. Harris does wonderful work. He's very polite and he explains to you in detail what he's doing and why. He's basically my go-to vet.

Never shared my vet here.

Riverwoods Pet Hospital
3820 N University Ave, Provo, UT 84604
(801) 224-2233
Dr. Yoeny Calas-Dobson

She is the vet you want. The others are good with domestics, but she has specialized in exotics. She absolutely adores them too, and isn't patronizing at all. Very good with the animals and knows how to interact around them. Defers to you always and asks if certain things are okay. She treats a variety of wildlife and reptiles. She's seen my two foxes and has always been really good with them.

I'm Fable and Ifrit's mommy. Also mommy to Carousel, Breeze, and a bunch of snakes, lizards, and spiders. Oh, and one amphibian!
