The Rat Fan Club

Rat Vets—Western U.S. and other countries

This is a large file, so please be patient while it downloads, especially if you have Internet Explorer.  It may seem like it has “locked up” but it is just still downloading.

Listed Alphabetically by State and City (Except in California where the cities are arranged geographically.)
Compiled as a cooperative effort of the Rat & Mouse Club of America, The Rat Fan Club, and Brian Lee.
(A date after a referral is when the referral was made, and a name after a referral is the person who made the referral.)

Updated 1/25/18


PLEASE do not call or email a vet who’s never seen your animals before, asking for free advice just because you see their phone number or email address here! Make an appointment, take your rats in, get to know the vet, and let the vet get to know your pets. I’ve already had two VERY GOOD vets ask to have their names removed from this list because too many people were calling for advice without wanting to bring their pets in, and they just didn’t have time for it. So please don’t abuse this information and try to take advantage of these vets.



Neither The Rat Fan Club or the people who have recommended these veterinarians can make any guarantees about the quality of work the veterinarian will perform on your pet. And a recommendation of a particular vet should not be taken as a recommendation of other vets at that vet hospital. (I’m not trying to insult anyone here, I’m only saying that just because Dr. Smith knows her way around a rat doesn’t mean Dr. Jones in the next office over does.) You should thoroughly check out any veterinarian for yourself. We just wish to share our experience with you, and possibly give you a place to start.



If you do not find a recommended veterinarian in your area, you might want to check the website of the Association of Exotic Animal Veterinarians at which as a group represents veterinarians who love the non-traditional companion animal species.



From anywhere!  This vet uses homeopathic remedies and treats over the phone!

Note: One rat owner had a hard time getting an appointment for a very sick rat on a Friday as the receptionist said the doctor couldn’t see the rat until Monday.  The owner said, “I’m afraid that this rat might be dead by Monday.” The receptionist said, “Oh, I don’t think he’s doing that badly...he can wait until Monday.” The owner then asked to talk to the vet on the phone and pay for his time. The receptionist said, “Well, the doctor can’t diagnose your pet over the phone.” The owner replied, “Why not, you just did,” and hung up to find another vet.
