Veterinarian recommendations in Basel?

Hi all, I'll be coming across from the UK in 3 weeks and bringing my trusty sidekick Zola with me, she's an 8-month old black labrador.

The Swiss government website tells me that I must have her registered at a vet within 10 days of arrival. Zola has been known to have some health issues so I'm keen to find a great vet that I can get to know and trust.

Any recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks!

Re: Veterinarian recommendations in Basel?

Will you be living in the city? Which area? Or are you in a town in Baselland?

Re: Veterinarian recommendations in Basel?

I am a full supporter of the VetTrust system. They have locations throughout the city, all linked, so you can go to whatever one is nearest at the time.

I have never had anything but excellent service from the three locations I've visited, and my "home location" knows me by name and is responsive to my questions and concerns.

This is my location that I regularly go to:

Surgery was a couple of years ago and she's fully recovered. Here she is, chilling with her buddies

Re: Veterinarian recommendations in Basel?

One thing that might surprise you is that vets prices in Switzerland are lower than in the UK. In the UK vets charges are now totally outrageous.
My daughter's dog is at the vets every 3 weeks for pancreatitis in Geneva but the fees are far more realistic especially when he has to see a specialist for special treatment.

Thanks for sharing, this is great to hear. My pup has had lots of health complications throughout her short life, so it will be nice to be able to see a vet's bill without having a heart attack!
