The Vet Thread (Recommendations)

Ok, I'm going to start culling through various posts and put vets here. Feel free to add on. Right now this is just a place holder.

We may just accumulate vets here for a while. While I suggested this, I have to admit that organization is not my strength.

There will be some general resources to vets in Switzerland (e.g., links to lists of vets), so pet owners can find services even if no one here has prior experience, but in general, we're aiming for personal recommendations.

So if you have vets, put them here....and please remember to preface each entry with the kanton abbreviation. If the vet has a website link, then put it here too.

like this - unless folks have a better idea. (BE is Bern, obviously).
BE: blah blah blah

Re: The Vet Thread

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

These ladies have helped us out IMMENSELY and our boys love, love, love them, which I think is incredibly important to the whole "oh my god vet!" experience:

Canton Aargau (in Baden):
Kleintierpraxis im Ländli

JANINE MAUER & FRANCOISE LEICHTI

Ländliweg 4a
5400 Baden
Tel. 056 210 97 00
Fax 056 210 97 01
info@tierarzt-baden.ch

And here is their website (thanks Mrs. Doolittle) http://www.tierarzt-baden.ch/aktuell.html
They do speak a bit of English, although sometimes it's broken, but I understand it gets the job done if you're in a pinch (I speak German, so I'm lucky on that front).

GREAT idea for a thread, by the way! Thanks edot, you're such a true furry friend lover. Speaking of which, it's time for a walk!

My vet also sent me a link to behavioral medicine specialists in Switzerland and I just have to comb through my various email accounts to find that one. I suppose that if you have specific comments about these vets, it might be helpful to add them somewhere, too.
This is for all of Switzerland.

My understanding was the information here was to be posted by members who have had experience with a particular vet and that communication in English is possible.

Re: The Vet Thread

In Kanton Zürich, my recommendations are for:

Dr. med. vet. Lorenz Jöhr
Allmendstrasse 4
CH - 8700 Küsnacht
Tel. 044 912 04 04

http://www.joehr.com/

Within Zürich city (Zone 10):

Dr. med. vet. Emil Büchler
Hohenklingenstrasse 45
8049 Zürich
044 341 07 07

http://www.tierarzt-buechler.ch/

Both speak excellent English and are extremely professional. Dr Büchler's practice is larger and much more self contained. He did my dog's castration operation and left minimal scarring. The people manning his after-hours helpline also spoke good English.

Have only been to Dr Jöhr for shots so far (thank goodness) - he came highly recommended by melloncollie when I moved down here and it worked out perfectly as he is the closest vet to me as well. He is friendly and I love the way he handled my dog. He also took the time to chat with me and interact with my dog. I was pleased on a return visit that he remembered what we chatted about previously, and it showed that we werent just another one of those faceless patients that pass in and out of his examination room.

Re: The Vet Thread

All vets I've listed here are happy to conduct consultations, write reports, and correspond in English; some of the telephone staff may be less comfortable using English, but are more than willing to put up with my very imperfect German.

All the vets listed have encouraged me to be actively involved in my dogs' treatment whenever possible, making the procedure less stressful for my dogs, I think. That these vets have treated me as an equal partner in my dogs' care is something I value highly.



My primary vet, general practice:

I've been with Dr.Jöhr for years now. Although I now live over an hour away, I continue to see him because he is has been superb with, and understanding of, my... ahem... less than cooperative collies. That my usually vet-phobic mutts have been able to relax with him is quite a testament. This is a small practice providing all the basic services - which accounts for about 95% of our veterinary needs. For specialist treatment, Dr Jöhr refers me to trusted colleagues at various larger clinics.

Edot, how do you want to handle vets recommended by more than one poster? The information probably only needs to be posted once, but I think the fact that several EFers use a certain vet might be useful information for readers of this thread...

Sorry about that...as usual, I type before I think. I wanted to include a link to a list just in case someone's looking for a vet somewhere that none of us have been before. I'll clarify that in the first messages for each thread.

Uhhhhh. Not good at organization. Given the mechanics of the board, it would make sense to keep the messages about a given vet together. So the best thing I can think is to quote the previous message about the vet. So if you and I recommend the same vet, I'd quote your message and add my comments. Could we ask a mod then to prune out the duplicates? I don't know if there's a better way to do it given the linear structure of the thread, but I think accumulating responses together is a great idea.

Re: The Vet Thread

Bern/Thun

Here's our vet:

http://www.tierarzt-thun.ch/
Dr. med. vet. Gabriel Hofer
Allmendstrasse 6
3600 Thun
Telefon: 033 222 22 54
ghvet@swissonline.ch
Hours
Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday
07:30 - 12:00 13:30 - 18:00
Thursday
07:30 - 12:00 14:00 - 17:00
Friday
07:30 - 12:00 13:30 - 18:00
Saturday
07:30 - 12:00

Dr. Hofer speaks reasonable English, his staff doesn't speak much English at all. He's very nice, as are his office staff. Lily's had a couple of weird episodes in the middle of the night, and in each case we called him, after midnight. Neither episode required anything additional, but he was very good about being accessible. Because my husband speaks German, he often will go with Lily, but when I've gone by myself, I've been able to communicate with Dr. Hofer and his staff.

Re: The Vet Thread

Geneva, near the airport.

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

Dr Wolfgang Uebersax
Dr Alain Guerne

Both Doctors speak excellent English.

Sorry for all of this commentary when maybe all that was asked for was a list, but I feel that this veterinarian is the very best I have come across in the 30+ years I have owned dogs.

My first experience with this clinic was a few years ago. My oldest Bull mastiff, Dani, was losing muscle mass, her fur was thinning, and she had become incontinent. At the age of 9, which is a fairly ripe old age for a really big dog, I guessed either cancer or just old age in general.

When she reached the point where she had trouble standing,I brought her in with the intention of putting her to sleep, but Dr Uebersax suspected something could be done. I was hesitant to spend money on extensive treatment due to very few bull mastiffs living this long regardless of of health problems. Dr Uebersax told me "Let's try some tests. I will only charge you for treatments that produce positive results". Dani and I were at the clinic at least 3 times a week for at least a month doing various blood tests, and observations. Eventually Dr Uebersax found that Dani was suffering from a fairly rare condition called Cushings disease. My friends in the Bull Mastiff community scoffed at the idea because none have ever heard of a Bull Mastiff having it, and it most commonly affects small dogs. Within a couple of months of treatment, Dani's hair had grown back as beautifully as ever and she was running around like a puppy. She lived for two more years very comfortably. True to his word, Dr Uebersax billed me only for the specific tests and treatments that helped her.

On an occasion when another dog had developed a limp and required a tibial plateau osteotomy, Dr Uebersax was not able to perform the surgery himself, but did arrange for it to be done by the one Doctor in Switzerland who does. Fearing that I might have trouble finding the clinic, Dr Uebersax arrived at my house at 4 a.m. on the morning of the surgery, and drove me and my dog across Switzerland to the clinic in Zurich, and assisted in the surgery.

Dr Uebersax has made house calls for me when it was difficult to move an ailing dog, and opened his office for an emergency at midnight when the Geneva emergency clinic was too busy. I have called him for medical advice while he was vacationing in France, and he insisted that I call him back to tell him how that advice worked out. He has mediated on my behalf so that I could adopt another Bull mastiff from the Geneva shelter, which was not an easy thing to do due to Bull mastiffs being a banned breed here, and even mediated on my behalf with the police on an occasion in which someone made a complaint about my dogs barking at her (the police admitted to him that they suspected a mental imbalance in the woman because she makes several complaints every week concerning the weather and other injustices).

Of course, this kind of service could be attributed to the fact that we have become good friends, and please don't go there demanding that you receive the same. But I do know that I am not the only customer that gets this kind of service from him. Now I just have to find a way to convince him to move his practice to the United States when I move back there.

I would highly recommend this vets, in April something bit and broke a bone in my cat's paw, which subsequently required months of regular splint changes due to the infection the bite wound caused. The 2 lady vets were fantastic and clearly loved animals, which made the whole process easier. They speak good English and there is also an emergency phone line for out of office hours.

Weidmann Marianne Tierärztin Kleintierpraxis Sonnental Sprechstd. n. Vereinb. Birchlenstr. 75 8600 Dübendorf Telefon 044 821 51 51


I mainly talk to her in German but she does speak pretty good English. So far I am very happy with her, she knows about the pet passport regulations and has been great with all the injections and one dislocated tail she has had to deal with.

There is another Vet in Dubendorf on the main street, do not go there.

I do not know all veterinaries of the centre personally but I can recommend two of them (if the others are at the same level you can be sure you are in great hands!):

Dot. Beagler: dermatologist (he speaks German, French, English and Italian)

He helped me so much with my dog when she had skin and allergy problems (she is a sharpei... so she has many many probs with skin and allergies) and I am still in touch with him because of a treatment he suggested me to do for my dog. He is really caring and experienced. I was desperate before meeting him...

Dot. Reitano: ophthalmologist (he speaks German and Italian; not sure about other languages)

He visited my dog when she had eye problems (other weak point of sharpei) and he is really professional.

Re: The Vet Thread

I recommend Maurizio Gianini at Mondo A Tierpraxis in Riehen, just outside Basel, on the tram 6 line (www.mondo-a.ch). His wife is also a vet there, but I've only been to see him.

Mondo A was recommended to me by several neighbors after I was having problems with another vet regarding a paw infection one of my dogs got. While Dr. Gianini's English isn't fluent, he's very patient and he was wonderful. He took a lot of time to make sure I understood the dog's condition and the treatment options and his specific recommended course. My dog's paw healed perfectly under his care, and I've been using him ever since.

He seems very knowledgeable and likes to explain things to his clients (which I like). I wasn't surprised when a neighbor said something about him being previously affiliated with a university (my German isn't good enough to have caught in exactly in what way, though).

P.S. I've been to two English-speaking vets in Basel that I didn't like -- PM me if you want the names and details for why I didn't like each.
