A good exotic vet is hard to find...and an excellent one even rarer still.
Having used 'local' vets for our Chinchillas we have encountered many problems, especially when it comes to dental care. Many vets fail to spot the signs or understand the importance of checking roots. I have had mis-diagnosis and even worse, refusals of pain management.
The exotics team at Manor (we usually see Marie but have also seen Toby)are professional, caring and give out a realistic prognosis. I have a Chinchilla who requires regular dentals and pain relief. The dental work has always been top notch and as a result, he is still with us some 18 months after diagnosis of terminal root elongation.
They have a great understanding of the species, and a ton of experience. They are certainly not the most local vet to me, but the only vet I would trust the care of my Chinchillas too.
If you need a good Chinnie Vet, Manor Edgbaston is the place to go. Worth every Penny.

Marie Kubiak, Toby Trimble, and the staff at Manor Vets Edgebaston should be recognized and applauded for going above and beyond with their services to prairie dogs and Richardson Ground Squirrels (RGS). In a field where knowledgeable veterinary care of these species is in short supply and a rare commodity, it is refreshing to know that I have a place to refer my clients where I can trust that these animals will get the best care available in the UK.
What I find as their strongest asset is that they are continually striving to stay knowledgeable and up to date with the various species they see and are flexible, open-minded, and willing to seek out information from those that may have more experience hands-on with an animal in order to benefit who they may be treating. They ensure that they are getting the best and providing the best to the animals under their care and treat the animals and their caretakers like family. They understand how important exotic species are to their owners as cherished and beloved family.
I'd say they are worth the time and drive, regardless of your location, especially when it comes to prairie dogs and RGS.

I have been with these vets for years & they have never disappointed me! Always there when I need their help, be it on the phone or when I'm having a panic attack (usually over nothing) & insist on my dog being seen ASAP. They will do everything possible to help you 24 hours a day, Everyday of the year. They saved my Ridgebacks life so many times & helped give him a long & happy life with his illness.
I travel 30 minutes to get to them & I do that because they are fantastic, trustworthy vets & nurses.
I highly recommended them especially David - My dogs love him!

The exotics team at Edgbaston really know their stuff - would recommend to all rabbit owners.
The 24 hour assistance is a god send - don't think my little mini lop rabbit would be here today without the emergency care he's received.
All staff are kind and upbeat - the care and attention they give is outstanding.

As owners of 17 Ground Squirrels and Prairie Dogs, we really value Marie's/Toby's expert knowledge of exotic species, which in our experience is unrivaled. Over the last few years year most of our pets have needed Marie's attention in some form, be it cutting a very scared Prairie Dog's nails, or arranging for CT scans of one of our Ground Squirrels teeth to assist in understanding the cause of his Odontoma. A year ago one of our Squirrels developed an abscess beneath his eye the day before we were due to fly away on our Christmas vacation. Marie truly went beyond the call of duty and agreed to personally look after our pet for the duration of our holiday over both Christmas and New Year holidays, including post-operative care following the removal of his eye in order to treat the abscess. Not only was Marie able to save our pet by operating to remove the eye and abscess, but she also saved our holiday as we would otherwise have had to cancel our travel plans. Our pet spent the whole period with her and we were kept updated every day via email of his progress until we returned from our holiday. Toby has had to deal with emergency Rut repairs on our baby Gizmo (When PD hormones kick in and their temperament changes) and then having to deal with Mamma issuing instructions of it SLEEPS IN BED not in a cage so can you take it home with you! During the course of the last year we also have also sadly last 3 of our 'babies' and Marie and Toby and Manor Vet Staff have showed us much compassion. We are very thankful to have found someone with not only such an amazing knowledge of exotic species, but also having such a caring and generous nature. We are very grateful towards Manor Vets for everything they do...it is our 'home away from home' as we are there every month!
