Really good for pet rabbits! ???????????????? Kuah, Nata and Haseko worked out really well here. The service was much faster than expected given we had 3 bunnies.

Great expertise and well taken care of. As a bird owner finding someone who knows what they're doing is rare and this was a wonderful, and educational experience. They took fantastic care of my cockatiel and I will be back for any future needs for my birds.

Words cannot describe how much I appreciate this entire team at Seavs, it has always been clear in my experience that this team is passionate and truly do care for your pet’s well-being. I’ve been bringing all my bunnies to this veterinary office for years, usually they are seen by Dr. Nielsen (who we love!!). Today I had to put down my heart bunny, Rex, and Dr. Hartzler and Katie his nurse, went above and beyond to make sure my best friend was cared and comfortable in his last moments. Saying goodbye to a beloved family member/best friend is always incredibly hard and painful, but I am honestly so so thankful that we were able to give him a peaceful and gentle passing. I will continue to bring my bunnies to seavs because I trust that my exotic friends are in the most caring, capable hands of this amazing team of professionals here.

Whenever my rats need to be taken to the vet Stahl exotics is always my go to. Every time I come to stahl exotics I am 100% confident that my babies are being well taken care of. Their kind demeanor and professionalism goes above and beyond for me.

The staff at Stahl are the kindest and most professional and thoughtful people you could hope to work with. They were the only vet that would urgently see a chinchilla and although I was reluctant to make the hour drive, I am so grateful that I did. Every person I encountered was so kind and so empathetic. My poor boy was quite ill and they addressed this serious issue in a way that was professional and respectful. They outlined the prognosis and my options and gave me the space to make the decisions I needed to. If you have an animal that the typical vet is reluctant or unwilling to see, please don't hesitate to reach out to Stahl. I will gladly make the trek to work with them in the future and will be forever grateful for their caring and thoughtful service.

Super friendly FLEXIBLE vet office! While the rest of these vet offices are struggling and over crowded and can't see anyone for months they have available appts either that week or next week! Very knowledgable vet for exotic animals! I was impressed with how much my vet knew about my sugar gliders. As I told the vet the last time I was there I will be going there for all my exotic animal health needs! Oh and reasonable prices!

Our first time taking our guinea pigs to the vet and SEAV was fantastic. We were concerned about a possible infection and they did a great checkup and reassured us that everything was okay. SEAV was recommended to us by the Metropolitan Guinea Pig Rescue. Excellent COVID procedures.

We normally take our guinea pig to Pender Exotics over the years, we have been very loyal with keeping the same provider but with the holidays, our doctor was unavailable. Our pet, which I treat like my baby was treated with the utmost care. Dr. Train was thorough and detailed, took her time to explain her diagnosis and was super nice. With COVID, these are tough times to work through for any professional but we’re immensely grateful that we can find quality medical care, amid the holidays particularly, we called around to seek help and this was the only practice available. I was super hesitant as I hate the idea of bringing her to a new doctor and someone that I’ve still never met in-person but I appreciate the precautions in place. I’m just grateful that my beloved pet has what she needs to hopefully, feel better soon.

We've taken our pets to Dr Stahl for decades. He and his staff are by far the most professional, caring, and capable we've ever met.

Skilled care for our guinea pigs! We have met snakes, lizards, birds, bunnies, turtles, and more as other patients! ~15 happy years as Stahl customers.

All and all just a wonder Place! It may be 45 minutes from my house but was well worth the drive. They had a very reasonable price for my hedgehogs nail trimming compared to places in my local area. They completed the trimming within 20 minutes and were also had a quick and efficient program for checking out and in. Highly recommend:)

Dr Bailey took such great care of my little grumpus. I was afraid because he had never visited a vet before so he would be so freaked out. But they knew exactly how to handle him so he wasn’t so afraid. Very knowledgeable doctor and so good with birds. This is a great place to take your birds.

A rabbit rescuer told me that SEAVS is the best rabbit vet in the area, and I don't doubt it. I've been here three times with my rabbits and everyone was extremely friendly, professional, and extremely hardworking. It's so hard to find vets that really know rabbits, but from their questions, answers, and actions I know that they are extremely knowledgeable and that my rabbits and I are in good hands.

Stahl exotics has been my go to vet for my rabbit for years. After a struggle with anemia and being told she likely wouldn’t make it from other vets, stahl helped provide the care to keep her healthy. During peak covid times, they came outside and taught me how to administer fluids to my rabbit safely, and they are the reason for her full recovery. I can’t thank the staff enough at stahl, and their prices are very reasonable. The vets always take the time to explain treatment options and give you all the pertinent information. Highly recommend for smaller services like nail trims as well, they are prompt and affordable and won’t overcharge you for every line item. Thanks to stahl exotics from me and Puddles!

Oh boy I could not wait to login today to leave a great review of this place. I had to bring my parakeet in for an emergency, and I called 10 vets near me, only 5 saw "exotics" and all of those were on vacation or not accepting new patients, even on an emergency basis. What, did they all take a vacation together? This was a super long drive for me, but so worth it. They are how vets should operate. Fast, affordable, accessible, and friendly. They charged me for an emergency visit what my last vet would charge for a regular visit. And they gave me lots of great info on the after care. And staying open until 8 shows they really try to make it convenient for the patient, not themselves (although I felt bad they had to work late, but very grateful). Many thanks to them!

I’ve been going here for years and I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my sweet Guinea pigs. The doctors stick to the estimates they give you and are very kind! I’ve never left unsatisfied! You can trust them with your piggies :)

Awesome doctors, terrible service. I would highly recommend if you love sitting in the parking lot waiting for them to bring your pet out to your car for over an hour after they have the animal sitting, ready, and they know you’re there, but are really really busy doing receptionist things and can’t be bothered to bring your pet out. Oh and also if you like being put on hold for 25 minutes to even talk to a person, or like leaving messages to have them not call you back. Or having monumental wastes of your time being marginalized because after all there are other more important things going on. I pray I never have to come back here.

This is a change from 3 years ago. When I first got to the practice, there was a doctor I truly enjoyed going to. He was very helpful and gave me his professional opinion on one of my rabbits that had a serious medical condition. After I moved and came back, he was not there any more. The other doctors I would see were good for the most part. One of them upset me when they wanted to perform a surgery regardless of it not being in the animal's best interest. I would be asked on more than one occasion if my rabbit was altered/ wanted to be altered and I made it very clear what the answer was (this pet had two major oral surgeries and putting the animal through anymore is unfair and inhumane). On top of this, the quality of service from the front desk has drastically declined. I came in for an emergency visit and was treated as if I was not a client of many years. I was forced to give a down payment to only have them return more than 200$. Then recently I called for an emergency for a different rabbit and was told clearly by one of the receptionist, a rabbit with sore hocks is not an emergency and had an attitude with me. Poorly trained and educated receptionists.. I will not be coming back with any pet of mine. My rabbit is now feeling much better with antibiotics and pain medicine without their 'help'.

I unfortunately had to go in this morning for an emergency visit for my pet rabbit, Molly. The front desk was able to squeeze me right in and they took great care of Molly! It is more expensive than my previous vet but I would rather spend a little more and leave with a healthy rabbit than receive no answers. She saw Dr. Lauren Duthie who was great and explained everything so well and was upfront about all costs. I never leave reviews but I know how hard it is to find a trusting and qualified rabbit vet so I hope this review can help others!

I highly recommend Stahl Exotic Animal Veterinary Services. Our domesticated rat was ill. They understood she was part of the family and took great care of her. She has made a complete recovery and we are so grateful. Thanks to everyone at Stahl’s!
