Vets who have Experience Treating Rats

Please Note: This is a list of individual VETS not vet clinics. 

When making an appointment please insure you are booking in

to see the vet listed not any other vet at the clinic. 

The only vets that the AusRFS is in a position to recommend are those that

our Club or Rescue Service has worked with directly and we can therefore 

recommend them as being experienced, knowledgeable

and up-to-date with rat treatment and surgery.

These vets are marked below.

The other vets listed are known to have experience treating rats. 

Please contact the vet before making an appointment, to check what

experience they have in relation to specific

treatments and surgery.

If you have any questions please contact the AusRFS.
