Vet List | House Rabbit Society


Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This is a state-by-state list of veterinarians who practice veterinary medicine on rabbits. International veterinary listings are at the bottom.

Listings are links to local chapter vet recommendations or recommendations made by experienced rabbit rescuers or guardians.

House Rabbit Society makes NO CLAIMS regarding these veterinarians.

This veterinarian list is another way that House Rabbit Society advocates for the welfare of pet rabbits. Veterinary medical schools typically do not cover rabbits as a required species. Veterinarians interested in rabbit medicine must learn about rabbits elsewhere, such as by attending conferences and completing continuing education modules, and working with rabbit rescue groups. Our aim is to include veterinarians who have demonstrated competency with rabbit medicine and surgery, and who take the time to educate themselves.

If you do not see a veterinarian’s name on the list, or if a name has disappeared, there are a few reasons why this might be:

  1. We do not yet know enough about this veterinarian to add them to the list;
  2. The veterinarian doesn’t want to be on the list because they are not accepting new clients;
  3. We cannot endorse this veterinarian because of negative client experiences or consistently poor patient outcomes.

If you are interested in using a veterinarian not on the list, please do your own careful research on the veterinarian.  Ask them questions to make sure you are comfortable taking your rabbit to them. If you would like to speak privately with us regarding any veterinarians in your chapter or region, please contact your chapter manager or local educator.

Do not assume that because one veterinarian at a clinic is experienced with rabbits, all of the doctors are. If you call for an appointment, and are offered an appointment with a vet you do not know, insist on seeing the vet you asked for. When calling, please indicate you received their veterinary listing from House Rabbit Society.
