I highly recommend Dr. Alexandra Wilson at NYC avian and Exotics, up on Columbus and 86th st, nyc. Very nice, super knowledgeable and they have all the right equipment! I've had good experiences there.

Beware, St Mark's in NYC is the most expensive vet around. I was shocked to get a $200+ bill for a mouse that needed antibiotics. They did a bunch of unnecessary tests (urine, stool) and charged a huge fee for same-day service. Later on I read that they were the most expensive vet in the area, maybe in NYC (though there must be expensive vets in the UWS).

Another person recommends:
"the prospect park animal clinic on prospect park west. Two of the vets there work with rats, and they are very sweet people."

A meetup member recommends:
"I wanted to let the group know that we have found a 'exotic' vet in Park Slope, Brooklyn at Park Slope Veterinary Care, that we like very much. His name is Dr. Madden and he is located at 413 5th Ave. (between 6th Ave & 7th St). The phone number is: (718) 788-0500.
He has now performed 2 surgeries on 2 of our rats for different issues and they came through with flying colors. We like his manner with them and he is obviously fond of the animals he treats, which is a good thing in my book."

Recommended in New York NY:

"Dr. Shachar Malka, DVM, Diplomate ABVP (Avian Medicine) has been practicing medicine exclusively on birds, exotic mammals, reptiles, amphibians and other exotic pets."

We would appreciate an evaluation of the vet's abilities by your rats from 1 to 4 paws with 4 being superior.

From Drusilla: ...I highly recommend Dr. Fairlie at the Creature Comforts Animal Hospital in Poughkeepsie. The facility is new (opened a little less than a year ago) and lovely, and Dr. Fairlie is very good with rats. Last time I was there with a friend a few weeks ago, they were treating a pet duck. :)

I recently started with working with Dr. Loose who is a Vet that makes house calls in areas in Brooklyn as well as work weekends in Long Island. She is extremely knowledgable of rats along with other pets. Her services are also a fraction of the price of the exotic vets I have worked with in the city.
