In Zürich (Höngg) I can recommend Dr. Büchler:

http://www.tierarzt-buechler.ch

Don't know if he speaks English but he is very friendly and competent!
Dr. Büchler retired this year and his practice was taken over by dr. Denise Dollriess (http://www.kleintierpraxis-hohenklingen.ch/). She is nice (I met her only twice), but speaks little English and prefers German.

Re: The Vet Thread (Recommendations)

For Zurich and for smaller animals I can realy recommend Dr. Beltracchi. She does an amazing job with the animals and knows a lot. and if she
doenst know whats wrong or how to do something she sais so and recommends other doctors. She doesnt just try and up!

Dr. med. vet. Angela Beltracchi
Brunnwiesenstrasse 78
8049 Zürich
044 341 4075

I've been going to her with my guinea pigs for about 18 years.

Re: The Vet Thread (Recommendations)

I know there have been posts about folks looking for English speaking vets etc. I simply wanted to post a note of positive support for Cabinet Veterinaire de St-Jean located in Geneva and Dr. Robert Campbell and his staff.

A few weeks ago I took our cat in to get established with the practice and for his yearly exam and blood-work. While the results of the exam and testing weren't exactly what we had hoped for (looks like my feline friend has early stage kidney disease ) I simply cannot say enough positive things about our experience. The ladies running the front desk were friendly and efficient in helping me schedule our initial appointment. The actual appointment with Dr. Campbell was refreshing and educational. He really took the time to thoroughly check out my cat and as we worked our way through the appointment had an educational and frank discussion about what might be going on health wise with my boy. I liked that it was a DISCUSSION about my cat's current situation and not a vet talking down to me and pushing certain tests or medicines that I HAD to purchase or have performed. The cost for the exam, tests performed, and a few other items did not seem out of line or overly high. I base this on prices I paid for vet care, tests, and similar items back home in USA/Maryland/Baltimore/Washington DC area. It was obvious to me even in this first visit that the doctor and staff here really care about the animals ( and people) that they help.

We have a follow-up appointment in a few weeks. Fingers crossed we can get a jump on my cat's situation and keep him around for a good spell.

I also found out that he offers the SKN theory class in English which might be of something to note for folks in the Canton of Geneva looking to fulfill the SKN theory requirements. (Sadly for me I'm in Vaud so it doesn't help me any)

Another bonus is that the practice is easily reached via public transport. I took a train to Geneva Cornavin. Once there walk out the side of the gare toward the location for bus V and Z stop (you go past a clothing store on the right hand side.Once outside hang a right and then go left (across the tram tracks) Go PAST that stop and hang a left. Make your way down to the stop for bus 9. You will want to get off at the stop marked Mileant. Cross the street and you will see the sign for the vet office right past the bus stop. I'm told they have underground parking for clients and can provide you with a code for garage and elevator access.

Here is a link for their website:http://www.veto-stjean.ch/index_en.html

I will also add that since I started to write this I popped into their office this week without an appointment to pick-up some needed supplies. It was a different staff running the desk but again, very friendly, professional, and proficient at what they do. Looking forward to the day when we get our canine friend and can bring him/her here!

Re: The Vet Thread (Recommendations)

Just A Mutt: Since you say you are bringing your canine over, according to your post, and since you are in the Canton de Vaud, allow me to recommend an excellent lady vet in Rolle, just next to you in Nyon area. DR. Saskia MUSKENS has her clinic right along the lake of Geneva. She is roughly a 10 minute drive away from you. She speaks excellent English and adores animals. As you approach Rolle from Nyon ON THE LAKE ROAD, you arrive in Rolle where the main drag is still under refurbishing. However, as you get to those roadworks, bear sharp right back on yourself, down to the lakeside and she is just there on your right. If she asks how you found her, just say you found out from the lady who owns CHEEKY. This is my little dog whom she actually took home with her rather than leave her on a drip-feed overnight at her clinic! I highly recommend her.

Re: The Vet Thread (Recommendations)

We have lived in Lausanne for about 2 1/2 years now.
We have a Chinese Shar pei which are known for their issues.
Our vet AniMed is Lausanne Based.
www.animedcenter.ch/en/
Under Vet's Dr. Olivier Grin and Dr. Valerie Grin, our dog is healthy and happy. We have taken her to the AniMed for all issues relating to seasonal alergies to large bites wounds to simple check ups.
They have kept our "Lady" healthy.

Re: The Vet Thread (Recommendations)

How come your dog has these huge wounds in her body? Sounds like she has been open to being attacked and I believe they are known for their gentilesse?

Re: The Vet Thread (Recommendations)

Hi Englishforum members, pet lovers and all

I found this post about vet. Recommendations and thought to get some real help in order to fix the health issues of our little dog. She is 3 years old.

I really hope someone help us so that she will be once again healthy!

She is having terrible skin problem especially in her tail and on her sides on the back. Just two days back she finished taking her antibiotics and cortisone for two weeks as prescribed by the vet which unfortunately had no positive effect instead it worsen the problem. We spent lots of money on this but still no cure. Vet had a doubt about thyroid and made a blood-test and after this he prescribed above mentioned drugs.

Now, I really would like to take her to a serious vet who understands the problem and treat her correctly so that we can see her once again healthy.

We live in lausanne and would appreciate your help on this. Thank you in advance.

I will appreciate a lot for your help!

Have a sunny day!

Awesome

Re: The Vet Thread (Recommendations)

awesomewow: If you care to come as far as Rolle there is a darling vet there named Saskia Muskens. If you decide to come to her then take the AUTOROUTE to Rolle. Come off and turn up left to the roundabout. Turn left there again and go until next roundabout and turn DOWN TO ROLLE. At the bottom there is a big carpark on your LEFT and bang opposite is a one-way road. Go down that and over the hump in the road until you arrive at the end of it. TURN LEFT DOWN A HILL (you can't go right anyway), CROSS THE MAIN ROAD CAREFULLY AND GO STRAIGHT OVER IT. On your righthand side if the Vets where Saskia is. She is the nicest, friendliest and excellent vet I have met in 50 years here. PHONE NO: 021 825 46 26. You can say Cheeky's mummy gave you her address. This is a woman with a big heart who loves animals more than life, quite apart from being quite beautiful in face and mind. She saved Cheeky's life. Good Luck.

Re: The Vet Thread (Recommendations)

Hi all

@mayday, thank you for the address and the reply. It is bit far for us but if I end up in going there I will surely get back to you. I really prefer in lausanne area as it is the easiest not only for now but also for the future visits, if any.

Thank you and await more advises.

Have a wonderful afternoon.

Awesome

Veto Chez Vous- Veterinarian at home in the Cantons of Geneva and Vaud
www.vetochezvous.ch
tel:078.879.00.29

I had a very good experience with the above home-veterinarian. She came to my place foe the shot of my 3 years old cat and 5 years old dog. It was always a disaster foe me to take my animals to a veterinary clinic. But now, I find it a very comfortable solution. The veterinarian is very kind and well-organized with a very good equipment.
I highly recommend this service.

Re: The Vet Thread (Recommendations)

Hello all,I am new in Zurich, relocated here just last week from Istanbul. I am looking for a vet for my cat. Not only for the regular injections but someone proven effective with clinical diagnosis as well. (My cat has breathing problems time to time) All the thread here seemed to me a bit outdated so I wanted to ask for your recommendations again. Can someone recommend me a good, english speaking vet SPECIALIZED in CATS in Zurich Area? Thanks a lot for your help,
Ece & Pirtik (my cat)😊😻

Re: The Vet Thread

Hi,
We used to visit the Kleintier Praxis in Dättwill, AG, since day one in Switzerland (June 2013) for their registration, passports, once for Lucy's skin allergy and for Matina's cortison shot and skin allergy as well.
To be truthful, because i was working in a veterinary clinic and have seen the work of many vets (volunteer in the panehellenic federation of animal welfare) i am not satisfyed by Kleintier Praxis in Dättwill way... There are many things for me to complain about, but i do not want to do this here. It was not working good for me and i mean my girls and the vet ( i do not even remember his name), anyway.
The thing is that we need to have a vet here and i'm on search to find the one that i can trust his expertise, have a chemistry ( i find this essential and i can see that my girls do, although they behave excellent on the table and any kind of examination).
For annual vaccination, we visit our vets and friends in Greece every summer, but this can not be the solution, if girls have an emergency situation.

Re: The Vet Thread (Recommendations)

Glad this thread has resurfaced, as I see I have not yet posted this resource in the Ausserschwyz area:

Tiermedizinzentrum Marigin

www.marigin.ch

A large practice which opened last year, with most of the bells and whistles including a CT scan. The praxis is led by Dr Cantieni, and in addition to the full internal staff several of the area's well known specialists practice there on an extern basis scheduled days of the week.

I regularly go there for physiotherapy with Herr Marco Mouwen for Heffalump and Hooligan, and I am there now, watching my Belltie in the oxygen chamber. (That was probably the longest 10 minute drive of my life...)

The TiermedizinZentrum is not scheduled 24/7, but in an emergency one can call the number listed on the website, they will open as needed.

The center also offers a cat hotel. This would be a great solution for those of you with cats with medical issues when you need to travel. Book early, this service is much in demand.

The cat hotel is located in a quiet wing, well away from the practice activity. It looks quite nice.

Marigin is a great resource for Ausserschwyz.

Re: The Vet Thread (Recommendations)

I am currently using the http://www.tuez.ch/ in Tenniken near Sissach.
They are a referral center for smaller vets who need more expertise, and also they are a veterinary clinic in their own right.

Many years ago we were referred to Tuez, skilled vets - and very nice people.

It took me a couple of years to find a good vet here.
I am not sure if they speak English, but I can recommend Dr Schröter:

http://www.klein-tierklinik.ch/

He was able to make accurate diagnosis for both of my cats - one having also breathing problems.

I was searching on the Internet, and came up with this:

http://www.petfinder.ch/adressen/tierarzt

Not sure how comprehensive it is, but apparently you can search by Kanton. It's in German, so just for fun, I pulled up "Genf" (Geneva), and the practice names are a mix of German and French. Not sure if there is a french version of petfinder.ch.

The organization of the list is a little unclear (would be nice if it was arranged by post codes since "Kleintierpraxis" is not all that useful a name (and most practices are called that).

Edited to Add:
I've posted the general list here because our specific experiences might not cover all the areas of Switzerland, and I wanted to provide a resource that anyone can use. If you're new to Switzerland and don't know where to start searching, especially if you live in one of the Kantons not covered in our comments, then at least you have somewhere to search.

Re: The Vet Thread (Recommendations)

Had to call into a vet last night - at very short notice. Absolutely fabulous!

Clinique Veterinaire des Tuileries
42, chemin des Tuileries
1293 Bellevue
022 774 25 25

Not sure which chap was the treating vet, but he had excellent English, great sense of humour and charm, treated our hound with care, and wasn't prepared to charge us except for medicines, which is extraordinary given we're not from the area and with luck will be unlikely to need to attend again. Practice was sparkling clean, support staff were delightful, and access from the motorway was excellent with plenty of parking despite us towing at the time.

Know that this practice has been referred to by previous EF'ers and it really is rave-worthy.
