Rabbit Knowledgeable Vets in the Bexar County Area

This list is a work in-progress as more vets are located in the Bexar County area who have knowledge about the unique medical needs of rabbits. Not all vets have experience caring for rabbits and therefore may not accept rabbits as patients. It is therefore very important that rabbit owners locate a vet before they ever require their services. Rabbits with a mild illness or injury can decline quickly and die without proper medical care; you don’t want to be hunting for a vet when your rabbit needs help. This is not an exhaustive list and inclusion of a vet on this list is not an endorsement or advertisement for their services; this is an informational listing only. Edited by Tina Gilson.

After Hours and Emergency Care:

Rabbits are generally hardy pets that do not often get sick, but when they do, they should be seen by a vet as soon as possible. Injuries such as broken bones, cuts or torn skin, need immediate attention. Illness, particularly gastric distress, high or low temps, diarrhea, can cause serious decline or death in a surprisingly short time. Do not take a wait and see approach with rabbits. Emergency vets with knowledge of rabbit care are very limited in the San Antonio area. The following offer emergency care with some rabbit experience. The knowledge of rabbit care depends on the vet on duty, though all should be able to offer stabilizing care.
