I come to this vet because it's the only place (locally to me) that deals with small animals. The rest are only dogs, cats, etc. So, my review is dealing with the small animal portion of this vet.

We've brought two of our rats to this vet so far. The first time was for a check-up - the vet found that our oldest rat has a respiratory infection, and she gave us some oral medication to give him. It really helped.
We brought the rats back again when we discovered lice on one of them. The vet knew what to do - ivermectin injections, once per week, for at least two or three weeks. That cleared up the lice.

From talking with her, though, it seems that this vet isn't comfortable doing surgeries on smaller animals. I was discussing neutering both of my rats because of some problems with fighting, and she (and a few other rat people I talked to) discouraged that. But, she said there was a risk of anaesthesia with the neutering process - there should be little to no risk with neutering; spaying, however, is expectedly riskier. Neutering is a simple operation that shouldn't be worried over like that.

In short, this vet knows what they're doing with small animals. However, a bit more experience could be used.
