Vets in Zurich

Hey all!
I just got a new cat (Norwegian forest cat), and I'm pretty sure I'll get him neutered in a couple of months; Just wondered if anyone can point me to a reputable vet in Zurich? I don't have a car, so ideally somewhere easy to get to with public transport (Not that that's often a problem here ).

Thanks!

Re: Vets in Zurich

Congrats on the new addition!

It might help if you said where in Zürich you are, and how far/which OV lines you'd consider reasonable to travel.

I am not in ZH, so can't be much help there, other than to mention one place every pet owner in the greater Zürich metro area should know, the University of Zürich Tierspital:

https://www.tierspital.uzh.ch/de.html

This is where you might need to go in an emergency, or if referred for specialist treatment. It is one of the premier vet schools in Europe, a resource we are all very lucky to have access to.

While the clinic does indeed offer regular primary care, you likely will want a private vet as your primary carer, if only for the personal relationship. Hopefully someone in ZH will be along with recommendations.

But when you need the 'bells and whistles' the Tierspital is the place to go.

(After hours emergencies call first; for specialist consultations generally you should have a referral from your primary vet.)

Re: Vets in Zurich

in Albisrieden there is Letzi Tierarzt, they are ok (quite expensive but work so far cannot be complained about). the Bus stop is right next door.

Re: Vets in Zurich

We have a very good vet in Zurich (8032): Dr Norbert Frei, Freiestrasse 148A, 044 422 4073. My landlord (who is Swiss) recommended him to me and we have been really impressed with his practice. Apparently, he is a very skilled surgeon as well.

Hope this helps!

Re: Vets in Zurich

When we lived in Zürich we went to Kleintierklinik at Spyristrasse 8, Kreis 6. Frau Felder was particularly good though she might be off on maternity leave.
