(Ferret vets in NSW – 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!)
The list of NSW ferret vets is in alphabetical order according to the suburb/town the practice is situated in for easy reference.
Nepean Animal Hospital (Dr Antony Karolis said : “All the vets LOVE ferrets although some of us have more experience with ferrets than others. However, we have some very dedicated ferret vets in the team and we will internally refer a patient with something unusual”.)
South Nowra Veterinary Hospital (Recommended by a ferret owner)
Bligh Park Veterinary Hospital (Dr Alan Bennet)
St Andrews Veterinary Clinic (Dr Barry MacDonald) (Dr MacDonald has his own ferrets and breeds them)
St Clair Animal Hospital (Dr Antony Karolis said : “All the vets LOVE ferrets although some of us have more experience with ferrets than others. However, we have some very dedicated ferret vets in the team and we will internally refer a patient with something unusual”.)
Pittwater Animal Hospital (Drs Jillian King & Heidi Furber)
Great Western Animal Hospital (Dr Parsons said that they offer vaccinations, consultations, desexing and minor surgical procedures, but they’ll refer more complex cases to David Vella)

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.
