There is no substitute for medical care for a sick rabbit and there are no at-home treatments. If your rabbit is sick, it must see a qualified rabbit vet as soon as possible.

Orlando Rabbit Care and Adoptions, Inc. (ORCA) makes NO CLAIMS regarding these veterinarians.

How Can I Be Added to the
ORCA Veterinarian Listings?

Please contact us for more
information on being added
to our recommended vet list.

This veterinarian list is just another way that ORCA advocates for the welfare of pet rabbits. Since veterinary medical schools typically do not cover rabbits as a required species, veterinarians interested in rabbit medicine must learn about rabbits elsewhere, such as by attending conferences and completing continuing education modules, and working with rabbit rescue groups. Because rabbit medicine is specialized, you can expect to pay more for an office visit and procedures such as spays and neuters. Our aim is to include veterinarians who have demonstrated competency with the medicine and surgery of rabbits, and who take the time to educate themselves. The following vets have worked with ORCA members and friends. This is not a complete list of rabbit-savvy vets in Central Florida.

If you are interested in using a veterinarian not on the list, please do your own careful research on the veterinarian. Ask him or her questions to make sure you are comfortable taking your rabbit to that veterinarian. Finally, do not assume that because one veterinarian at an animal hospital is experienced with rabbits, all of the associates are, as well. If you call for an appointment, and are offered an appointment with an associate you do not know, insist on seeing the vet you asked for. When calling, please indicate you received their veterinary listing from ORCA. Remember that choosing a vet is an important, personal decision and you should always meet with or talk to the vet to make sure you are comfortable with his or her experience and procedures prior to your first visit with your bunny.

If you do not see a particular veterinarians name on a list, or if you see that a particular name has disappeared from the list, there are a few reasons why this might be, among which are:

  • It may mean that we do not yet know enough about this veterinarian to add him or her to the list, or
     
  • It may mean that the veterinarian doesn't want to be on the list because they are not accepting new clients.
