Mr A Von Allman

I cannot speak highly enough of M Allman - He looked after my beloved "Scud" for many years - and they both speak English.

Re: The Vet Thread

Kleintierpraxis Leu Daniela (specialised in cats)
Bahnhofstrasse 64
8803 Rüschlikon (they also do acupuncture)

My mitten's first vet in London was such a lovely young lady, amazingly nice and my cat loved her no matter what she did to her. I always thought all the vets certainly are like her. Maybe that is why I was a bit disappointed by the rather cold attitude over here.
Daniela Leu speaks excellent English and has been very helpful so far and she proved to be a greatly skilled veterinarian.

Re: The Vet Thread

ZH: Dr. Med. Vet. Daniel Suppiger. Near Horgen though not in the centre. Nearer to the Waldegg Centre. Great guy and very good level of English. Found my dog's slipped disc when we were convinced it was constipation! Also, another vet had diagnosed pain caused by diahorrea.

Re: The Vet Thread (Recommendations)

AG: Beinwil am See

Had to add an entry here after my experiences of the last few days - though I've always known they were the best vets in the world . I don't even live near them but they are the only ones I really trust (and I have tried a few).

She is older and works with her son who is also a great vet. Both excellent with dogs and they breed Friesian horses there so also very good with horses. Can't comment on cats / other creatures but they always take their time and get the full background and come up with the right solution. They both speak English.

When Darwin was there the last few days they noticed that the blood work done at the tierspital (where I first took him because it was an emergency and closer) was wrong (she asked them what kind of machine they use and apparently they tested that kind and sent it back because it was unreliable). They definitely saved Darwin's life: Tierspital had said he had eaten a foreign object and would have to wait til after Easter for an ultra-sound. We rang Hauri and she said she would do an ultra-sound that day but when we got there she soon said no ultra-sound was necesasary and diagnosed severe poisoning.

Previously when we took our other Lab in for something unrelated they noticed that his pancreas was not working properly and made him hungry all the time (even for a Lab). I also took a friend's Alsation there once in a last-ditch-attempt after another vet had said that his arthritis was so bad he would have to be put down, and a year on he is happy and healthy (though obviously still not up for long walks).

Sorry for long post - thoroughly recommend the drive out to these guys if you ever need a second opinion on something:

Re: The Vet Thread (Recommendations)

GENEVA:

I have a great vet who is a native English speaker (he's Australian), Robert Campbell. The practice is Cabinet Veterinaire de St-Jean. The address is 28 rue de St. Jean, 1203 Geneva; and the phone number is 022 340 27 27. They're open til 7 pm M-F, and from 8-11 Saturdays. They also do house calls. I found Dr. Campbell to be very kind and patient, and his prices are quite reasonable. I also liked his staff very much, although their English is limited. There is also parking on-site.

I've been using a vet right by the Lindenplatz tram (6) stop in Allschwil, BL.
So far I'm very pleased with him, and he and some of the staff speak English.

Dr Campbell is absolutely superb, both from a professional and personal viewpoint!

Re: The Vet Thread (Recommendations)

We have been very happy with our vet here in Zurich. He speaks fluent English and some of his staff does as well. Our dog had minor surgery a month ago and the care was top-notch. His contact information:

Dr. Norbert Frei
Freiestrasse 148a
Zurich
044 422 40 73

He has a partner in the clinic who we also saw for a leg injury. She also speaks fluent English. I appreciated that she didn't jump to expensive x-rays, surgery, etc. After a thorough exam, she gave great advice on caring for the leg and was available for follow-up (which we didn't need, thankfully).

Re: The Vet Thread (Recommendations)

Have to agree that Dr. Norbert Frei (and the rest of his staff) are very good indeed! Huge empathy for animals (and owners as well!). Explained any problems/issues/diagnoses and gave sensible advice for future treatment. Would recommend him (and his partner - whose name I cannot remember, but also speaks very good English) without hesitation.

Re: The Vet Thread (Recommendations)

BE: Kleintierpraxis IM MOOS
After deciding to change our vet (having been clients for many years of a vet in Neuchâtel and having been to a vet in Biel-Bienne over several months) we spoke in person with four vets in the Biel-Bienne area.

We settled on the above practice in Ins and can not recommend them highly enough.

They are German speaking but can also talk French and English to a high standard. They are competent, efficient, exceptionally well-equipped, organised and patient. We are demanding customers and - having learned from experience - never hesitate to take our animals directly to Tierspital in Bern. This has not been necessary since we started visiting Klientierpraxis im Moos.

Last December, our then vet told us that - if she didn't respond to a drip within 24 hours - our 18 year old female cat should be put down. As I make this post, she's asleep in the kitchen (the cat, not the vet of course) and very much active and still with us. This is in no small part due to the collaborative attitude, proactivity and competence of the above practice.

We like 'em.

In Fribourg area:
Mathias Berther
Route de Corbaroche 14, 1721 Marly
Tel: 026 436 4613

He specialises in small animals and speaks pretty good English. Unfortunately, his staff don't or at least none of them did the last time I was there, which was about 3 years ago now when we had to have our 16 year old cat put to sleep.

I can recommend a vets in Allschwil. It is near the Dorfplatz tram stop, you go up a small alley-way next to the pub/restaurant and it is on your right hand side. Friendly and speaks good English.

Details here:

Looking for an avian vet in Canton Vaud, preferably near Lausanne. Does anyone know of one?
I'm afraid I can't give you a personal recommendation (as I don't have birds, nor do I live in Vaud ) but until someone more knowledgeble than I comes along...

From the Société Vaudoise des Vétérinaires website, under 'Animaux' search using 'oiseaux' as the filter. There are 5 vets listed as caring for birds - but I don't know if any of these are avian specialists.
