Bunny-Savvy Vet list

Bunny-Savvy Vet list

PLEASE NOTE: Bunnies are classed as EXOTIC in veterinary terms.  As such, vets require specialized training to treat them effectively.  Vets who have trained and only worked in South Africa are unlikely to have had extensive training in the treatment of bunnies. Our vet list is always under construction. Although we do our best to only recommend bunny-savvy vets, we (admins) have not been able to personally visited each of these vets. If you feel that one of the vets should be removed from the list, please contact us so we can investigate.
