We are an exotic pet first opinion and referral veterinary practice in SW London. We have been working with guinea pigs for 20 years. We are well equipped to diagnose our patients` conditions with a hospital standard x-ray machine and automatic processor, ultrasound scanner, endoscopy, ECG and on-site laboratory facilities to reduce the time spent to reach a diagnosis. The surgery has a fully equipped dedicated operating theatre with isoflurane anaesthesia, air drills, diathermy (a cutting system which minimizes blood loss), operating microscopes and surgical suction. We have full surgical facilities for operating on all species. We have full hospitalization facilities with temperature regulated hospital tanks as well as nebulization and piped oxygen for respiratory cases.

This is a registered charity and it costs £20 a year to join. They did, however, offer me telephone advice and an appointment for an emergency before I joined. Members have 24 emergency contact (text Vedra 07721 026401 - she will call you or tell you to call her back and she will pick up). They will also give non-members the name and address of the nearest Cavy experienced vet, or rodentologist to you.

Polly is an exotic vet specialist and has a keen interest in guinea pigs. She will always put the guinea pig's interest first and will always try to do things without anesthetics. She is incredibly knowledgable & I trust her a 100% with any of my pigs. If you're really stuck for money Highcroft will allow you to pay by installments or over the phone at a later date. they have several surgeries, but I recommend the Brislington one as it's Polly's main surgery & it's small and friendly.
They also have a site full of info: http://www.highcroftvet.co.uk/

Very good with guinea pigs. Very reliable & knowledgeable. I trust them with my piggies wholeheartedly. They are prepared to do anything rather than put down a piggie they can help.

Several 'small furry' enthusiatic vets, including myself, work at this practice - we all love piggles and most of us have experience keeping them ourselves as well as treating them medically. One of our vets is also very experienced at concious molar teeth trimming (eliminating the risk associated with a general anaesthetic) and the practice sees regular rodent surgeries so we have plenty of experience operating on small pets.
