    Hi, welcome to the forum I'll ask one of the Mods to move your post to Rabbit Chat where it will get more views. Hopefully, someone will then come along to give you some recommendations. I know of a really excellent vet in Maidstone, but that might be too far for you. That's Mark Rowland at Trinity Vets.

    Welcome to the forum. I cannot help you with your question, yet know you will find RU to contain much information about your bunnies; along with a support system for you and your rabbits.
    We would enjoy seeing photos of your bunnies and hearing stories about their personalities.

    GBH Rescue are over that way somewhere, so it might be worth asking who they use too.

    Definitely Mark. I live in Dartford and wouldn't go anywhere else. I went to so many vets and even a specialist when Doughnut was ill and no one recognised her symptoms or told me she was OK, when in fact she was really ill. Mark was my last hope and he was fantastic. She was then on long term medication for acid reflux and slow gut mobility. When I had to put her to sleep last month, he was the only vet I trusted to tell me the time was right as she bounced back so often. And he was the one to put her to sleep and sent me a card afterwards to say how sorry he was.

    Weeks before I had to put her to sleep I went to my local vets as an emergency in the night and they basically didn't have much of a clue involving rabbits and told me to take her back home and literally die! They also don't have the specialist medicine that is at a specialist. So worth the drive, if you're in Orpington it will probably take you about 25-30 mins.

    Richard is also very good there. He's also an exotic vet specialist and the prices aren't any more expensive than local vets. In fact because I had to visit so often sometimes and Doughnut stayed in a lot, Mark didn't charge me for consultation fees or overnight stays during these periods.

    Brilliant thanks everyone, sounds like Mark at Trinity is the one to go for. Just need to convince my taxi driver (my mum!) to make that trip for my little bunny’s check ups. Thanks again everyone!

    If you need any help convincing your mum, I would say that a specialist rabbit vet ends up saving a good amount of time and money in the long run as they will normally do the right diagnostics, identify any issues and get them on the right treatment plan much earlier. Unfortunately with some vets who aren't very rabbit savvy you can waste a lot of time and money going backwards and forwards before you end up getting referred to the specialist anyway!
