« Guinea Pig Care In Hot Weather -- Revisited | Main | Guinea Pigs Cannot Live On Cedar Bedding »

In Westchester County, New York (and the surrounding counties) I would strongly recommend Dr. Laurie Hess at:

Veterinary Center for Birds & Exotics (VCBE)
709 Bedford Road
Bedford Hills, NY 10507
VCBE is a state of the art facility that treats only birds and exotic pets, no cats or dogs. Dr. Hess has over 15 yearts' experience treating guinea pigs. Her knowledge, expertise and compassion are unmatched.


I've had great experiences with everyone at Essex County Emergency Animal Hospital in Mass. On Christmas Eve and Christmas Night of last year, they were pleasant, professional, and did everything they could for my little piggins. There is an attached vet practice as well, but for the middle-of-the-night panic, I am more than impressed with the hospital!

Contact info for them:
Essex County Animal Emergency Hospital
247 Chickering Rd
North Andover, MA
(978) 682-9905


Trylon Animal Clinic
Dr. Wilder
9883 Queens Blvd.
Forest Hills, Queens, NY
Between 66th Ave and 66th Rd.


Dr. Richard Jacobs
Higganum Veterinary Clinic
265 Saybrook Rd.
Higganum, CT 06441

Dr. Jacobs is very knowledgeable and takes his time explaining what might be going on with our pigs - we never feel rushed. He handles all exotics, including birds and reptiles, as well as helping rehabilitators with wild animals, including foxes and skunks!

Old Lyme Veterinary Hospital
1 Davis Road West
Old Lyme, CT 06371

The Old Lyme folks handled an emergency call for us on a Sunday afternoon and saw us after hours.


In Rhode Island, I can heartily recommend Dr. Daniel Cardosa at:
Big River Veterinary Service
774 Nooseneck Hill Road
West Greenwich, RI 02817

He was recommended to me by the folks at Sweet Binks Rabbit Rescue. When Snowball got sick, his staff moved incredibly quickly to accomodate us, and everyone I encountered there was knowledgeable and kind.
