  • Peachtree Hills Animal Hospital
    Dr. Tara Rittle, DVM
    3106 Early Street
    Atlanta, GA 30305

    Phone: (404) 812-9880
    Fax: (404) 812-1818

    Dr. Rittle used to be at Bells Ferry Animal Hospital. We have seen her as
    both a primary vet and as backup to Dr. Ahearn.

    She is well skilled with guinea pigs, and open to listening to owner input,
    questions, concerns, and up-to-date care methods. She is an excellent
    surgeon, and is willing to try things, with owner consent, if it comes to
    saving a pig's life that other vets may shy away from or refer out for,
    wasting precious time. She saved the life of one of our males with a
    bladder stone adhesed to the urethral wall by creating a temporary
    alternative channel for urine.

    This practice is owned by Dr. Duffy Jones, who also used to be at Bells
    Ferry. Dr. Jones was one of the very first vets we ever saw to even be
    willing to consider heart conditions in cavies, and did an echocardiogram
    on one of our pigs in 2001 or 2002.

    My pig was extremely ill with blood in stool and completely dehydrated, he recovered in about 3 days with Dr. Houston's help. She is very dedicated and passionate about animals and takes them in immediately. Prices are very reasonable.

  • Brantley & Jordan Animal Hospital, PC
    Dr. Melissa Kling
    5698 Thomaston Road
    Macon, GA 31220

    Phone: (478) 757-1600

    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.

    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.
