We've put together this reference to help hedgehog owners find good vets in this area, but many of the vets listed here will see and treat other exotics as well!
While we try to keep this list up to date, the clinics or locations may not be accurate. I recommend double checking the location and doctor(s) on staff before scheduling an appointment.
Please note: We do not necessarily endorse or recommend any person or clinic listed below. We've compiled feedback and experiences that hedgehog owners have shared with us to provide this list as a reference only.
Choosing a Veterinarian
Finding the right vet to see your hedgehog (or other exotic pet) can be difficult! Unless a veterinarian has a specific interest and background in exotics medicine, their ability to assess, diagnose, and treat exotics will be limited compared to someone who treats exotics regularly. Keep in mind that your overall experience relies on the clinic atmosphere and the skills of the technicians and assistants there as well. Finding a good doctor is most important, but their support staff are crucial too!
