Default need a good vet

Hi guys and gals just wondering if anyone on here knows a good small animal specialist vet. The current vet i'm using is ok but i have lost most of my pet rats there during surgery, my rat now has quite a large tumor on her chest and i'm hoping someone knows of a vet with a better success rate of rats surviving surgery. Any help will be greatly appreciated

No i'm not joking why would i make a thread like this if i was joking
it may just be a rat to you but to me she means more i have looked after her since the day she was born so if i can extend her life a bit longer that would be great.

But if pets are disposable things to you whatever...

I'm not saying they are disposable, I'm saying the rat is prob in pain? That's all. Animals are the same as humans, when they no there times come they usally want it to happen quickly rather then their life be extended a few months and be in pain that's all I kno wat I said soundedean but I didn't mean it that way

Fair enough , i'm pretty sure she is not in pain as she still bounces all over the place even with the tumour and thats why i want to do the surgery now so it won't become more of a problem. If she was an old rat and near the end of her life i would put her out of her misery. But there is still a lot of life left in her.

And Thanks for the answers guys
