Ferret Vets in British Columbia


(Ferret Vets in British Columbia – I’m always happy to add sites which have been recommended by other ferret owners so if you have a good ferret vet who is not listed here, please let me know and I’ll put the details on this page … I reckon it’s great to have a list of vets we know are good so that if our ferrets ever get sick, we’ll feel comfortable in the knowledge that our pets will get the best treatment possible from a vet who knows what he’s doing!)

DISCLAIMER: The vets listed have either been recommended, or have advised me personally that they are happy to treat ferrets, or have mentioned that they treat ferrets on their website. However I have no firsthand knowledge of how experienced any of the vets are with ferrets.
It is up to you to make sure that you are happy with the treatment your ferret is getting from your vet. If you have any doubts at all, please think about getting a second opinion so that you know that your pet is getting the best possible treatment available.

  4. Thank you SO MUCH for your help, Dave! I’ll update the vets’ page tomorrow.

  5. I just had an amazing experience with Dr Chow at the Capitol Hill Animal Hospital in Burnaby. I highly recommend adding her to this list. I’ve also had a wonderful experience with Dr Mulder ten Kate at Gladwin Clinic in the past. Both vets are very knowledgeable about ferrets and truly care about their well being. Bless them both!

  6. Thank you so much for that, Maria! I’ll make sure that I add the fact that a ferret owner highly recommends the vet ?
    Hugs to your ferrets from the granny down under ❤
