Everyone knows how challenging it can be to locate a veterinarian who has experience with house rabbits and with whom we feel comfortable as clients. The list below includes vets who regularly treat our chapter’s foster rabbits, as well as others recommended by several of our members. This list is not all-inclusive. In fact, it’s an ongoing work-in-progress that we hope to update and republish from time to time. If you’d like un to include a vet who does not appear below, please send us an email at
