Wonderful manner, kind and very knowledgeable about guinea pigs and their care. Not afraid to listen to owner experience and willing to learn about new things.

Dr. Susan Leck Diplomate ABVP
Mountain Park Plaza Animal Hospital

Luckily I've never needed her pig services, but she has successfully neutered an spayed several pigs (that I've actually wintessed), taken out stones, tumors on rats, etc.
That's just what I KNOW she's done. She is gifted and capable.

I have not seen this vet personally but have had a lengthy conversation with her on the phone and am impressed by her knowledge of our furry friends. She has been treating guinea pigs for 20 years and is still not afraid to learn more, indeed WANTS to learn more. She has successfully treated heart pigs. The practice does not have an ultrasound machine. They will refer out for that if needed for any diagnosis. I believe this is a good choice for any guinea pig owners south of Atlanta.
