I currently live in Ormeau (the middle of Brisbane/Gold coast). Would anyone be able to suggest a good vet in this area, or some where close by that is not so expensive?
I do know that greencrossvets are very popular but they are quite expensive...or is that jus the normal price for a vet visit?

thank you for the info. its also great to know that they will have experience in piggies since they are classed as exotic. would you know if they are expensive?

I have no idea tbh, I've never used them personally (I live in Melbourne), but they may do a payment plan of sorts...so instead of one massive hit to the bank balance you pay it off in instalments.

BBEVS are a little expensive (but very good, they're my vets, I highly recommend them!) -- a standard check-up will set you back around $90, and that's without meds or any extras. All the vets (Deb, Melinda, Sasha) are very good with cavies, they know their stuff. They also don't offer payment plans in house. Deb at Camp Hill Vet is also very piggy savvy and she's much cheaper, she's probably the most affordable cavy savvy vet on the southside. On the Gold Coast Green Cross Oxenford (Ryan) has a good reputation for guinea pigs, as does the Gold Coast Vet Surgery (Kevin). I'm not sure about how expensive they are though.

All these vets work with guinea pigs, but I would lean towards Deborah Pears at Camp Hill if you're concerned about price. But, yes, vet visits can get expensive! I've spent thousands over the years in vet bills. It just happens.
