Does anyone know where there is a vets near Sutton Surrey?
Domonic at The Village Animal Hospital in Caterham is recommended for rats (various branches, not 100% sure Domonic still works there, so investigate first) as is Heron Vets in Morden (though I've not personally been to this practice).
Alternatively if you can travel, Rob at Seers Croft near Horsham is a really good exotics vet and just generally good with complicated rodent things. He will have seen various degu and chinchillas before as Starlight Trust Animal Rescue use him, but they're not the cheapest practice.
eta - for explanation, I used to live in SW London, and travelled out of more central London to Surreyish places for good rodent vets It's been a good 2.5 years since I was regularly seeing vets down there, and the practice who I do use when I'm visiting family still is in Clapham Junction. They're really good with rats/ mice/ hamsters, but no idea on degu capabilities. All Creatures in any case, should you want to vet out (haha) as many practices as possible by phone before deciding.
I just wanted to offer a recommendation for CJ hall vets in south west London- it's a two hour round trip for me to get there but I wouldn't go anywhere else, they are excellent at taking care of my little chap's dental problems and an infection associated with his teeth.
Would really recommend Allan the vet there. My degu always seems to come round from his dentals amazingly well when Allan does them. He is up and about and eating normally less than an hour later.
I found a fantastic vet clinic in Toronto, Ontario in Canada that focuses on exotic animals and has lots of experience with degus, as well as a number of vets that work in the same clinic. I highly recommend them:
I wanted a check up for my crowd, especially as I know nothing about mine.
For North Hampshire, St. Kitts in Hartley Witney are good, and experienced with little googoos. As a nice little bonus, they have surgery seven days a week at no additional cost, and are open until 7.30pm in the week! St Kitts Veterinary Centre High Street Hartley Wintney Hook Hampshire RG27 8NS

Just wanted to say i've recently been to the Scott Veterinary Clinic in Bedford, UK - they were absolutely brilliant, very kind, caring and especially knowledgable. There are two exotics specialists there, Nathalie and Paz and they are both excellent. Unfortunately it's a 4 hour round trip for me, but well worth it
I have been meaning to add Jacqui Paterson's vets in Stockton, UK. They were who I was referred to when my chinchilla was baffling my usual vet. The vet's there are very knowledgeable with exotics including degus & sugar gliders (as well as reptiles) A lot of local rescues use them. I saw Doninika who was really knowledgeable & had done degu castration & dental work.
3 rescue rabbits - Zak,Janis & Jim 2 rescue cats - Eddie & Nala 2 rescue dogs - Jack Russell Stan, Romanian Terror *cough* terrier Minnie 3 degu - Jelly, Leadbelly & Bo. 3 chinchillas - Sir Ian McKellen & Sir Patrick Stewart & Dame Maggie Smith 3 adopted Guinea Pigs - Aaron, Bea & Heidi
R.I.P my best friends Cat & Bengi, my first & best friends. Never forgotten, always missed.
I keep meaning to add, Piddle Valley Vets in Dorchester, Dorset. They are an exotic specialist and are great with both the goos and our hedgehog. I don't know the number off hand but will happily look it up if anyone needs it.
Exotic animal expert Lance Jepson (as seen on TV!) and vet Sophie Jenkins have expanded the number of days in which they run exotic pet clinics at St James Veterinary Group. To make an appointment call 01792 205000

I've just been given the addresses of two exotic specialists in the Merseyside area for possibly extracting Zoe's tooth - haven't checked either of them out yet, but the vet I see at my regular surgery recommends them for the fiddly stuff.
