View Full Version : Compiling a list of vets/vet clinics/ for reference for our forum

06-21-08, 04:12 pm
Ok, quite simple here. All I'd like for members to do is add the vet that you use to treat your pigs.

Name of Vet or Vet Clinic
City, State, Zip Code (or City, Country and Zip Code for those not in the US)
Phone number
Office hours
Does this vet treat emergencies? Answer yes or no
Is this an emergency clinic? Answer yes or no

That is ALL I want put on posts. Nothing else please. I don't want to wade through a bunch of stuff just to get the info. If you post other stuff or ask questions I will edit and remove all unrelevant information.

What I will do is pull the info from the posts and start compiling a list of vets for each state in the US or for your Country. Then when we have quite a few vets on the list, I will turn it into (hopefully) an easy to use database that you can download from this site.

I'm doing this project because we get tons of questions on vets in different areas. In order to help people better, a good list is needed.

GREAT IDEA. I had been working on a different site for a database of vets for a quite a while, but it got too complicated.

I wasn't quite ready to launch this new site, but here you go.
For Guinea Pigs - Home (http://www.forguineapigs.com).

I'll still be making some upgrades to it, but you can use it as it is.
It's for cubes and coroplast listings, hay, VETS, and other local resources--to start with. It also has Sue's new store.

Please DO add your vet listing on this site: For Guinea Pigs - Veterinarians (http://www.forguineapigs.com/index.php/Veterinarians/)

In addition to adding your listing, you can edit it. If you ARE the vet, you can have ownership of the record transferred to you. Any can add their comments about the vet. So, it's not just a single one-time listing.

Please. No more listings are to be posted on this thread.
