Thank you, great to know! As far as Como goes…I have been happy with them for the most part. They saw Lola, our bearded dragon a few times due to her becoming gravid. (Her eggs became stuck in her) They saw Tilly, the chin one time because she MAY have eaten some weed. However, they have a new policy that if you want to make an appointment for a checkup, you have to pay a $50 deposit just to schedule it. For whatever reason (maybe the fact I’ve given that place thousands in the past few years) it really annoys me. I feel like any vet that requires me to pay them money over the phone before they have even seen my animal does NOT have their best interest in mind. That being said, if i had to use them for an emergency i would not hesitate, but also i shouldn’t be putting all my eggs in one basket! As big an area as MSP is, i would like to find the BEST for our Tilly, not the cheapest, and not the most convenient. Thank you so much for your input!Hello, we live by St. Paul! I have had chillas for a long time. We bring ours to Como Park for emergencies, but to Cedar Pet Clinic in Lake Elmo #651-770-3250. It's not really that far and they are great. Dr. Bailie is partially retired, but very knowledgeable. My sister brought their geriatric 29 year old cockatiel there and they were good with Crash too. They treat a big variety of animals and they know that a chinchilla is not a dog... or guinea pig... Ugh. I'm curious why you don't want to go to Como Park? They were quite knowledgeable, but were more expensive due to after hours ER charge. We were able to get Critical care (food supplement for sick chillas) at Como Park if you ever need it. We buy food, sticks hay in the mail because either the one choice of food is expired, full of bugs, or full of unhealthy treats.
