Sorry for a small rant..... But I have terrible trouble with keeping vets.  When I decided to get my rabbits spayed last year, my current vet just suddenly told me they didn't see rabbits anymore. So I had to go on another vet hunt. Finally found one I really liked that did an awesome job. Call today to set up a time to get my rabbit's sore hicks looked at and they don't see rabbits anymore either.  So now I had to hunt again, found another (more upscale, meaning more expensive) that specializes in exotic pets. But I'm also wondering now how long this vet will see rabbits.

I have the same problem in Montreal  At the few places where there are vets that see rabbits, there's only 1 specialist and maybe one or two technicians - so if they leave I'm stuck finding a new place! I had an emergency but their vet wasn't in that day so I had to take her to another place that cost close to 3x as much for the same thing - and seem to care more about what they're making than taking care of our little fuzzy friends. Pain in the butt!

Lmais makes a good point...

Are these multi-vet clinics and the rabbit vet is leaving?
Or is it the same vet and they're just suddenly saying they don't see rabbits?
I guess I would also question if it's a new (untrained) receptionist who has just never SEEN a rabbit in there, but the vet IS, in fact, qualified to see rabbits.

If it's a vet that has left an existing practice, I would ask for their current location. They should be able to give that to you if you request it. If it's not too far, you could maybe continue to see the same vet.
