(Ferret Vets in Tasmania – 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 Tasmanian ferret vets is in alphabetical order according to the suburb/town the practice is situated in for easy reference.
Forbes St Veterinary Clinic (Dr Bob Clippingdale)
Kingston Animal Hospital (Dr Chris Lee) (All the vets are happy to treat ferrets at this practice)
Animal Medical Centre (Happy to treat ferrets)
Launceston Veterinary Hospital (Dr Kim Barrett)
Longford Veterinary Practice (Dr Martina McPeace) (Do not claim to be experts however they have access to a good information source if needed)
Mowbray Veterinary Clinic (Dr Peter De Boer) (Dr De Boer has been involved with ferrets for some time and can perform the most delicate surgery, such as vasectomies)
North Hobart Veterinary Hospital (Dr Jenny Cormack) (The vets love seeing ferrets)

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.
