Vets Good with Rats In Milton Keynes?  
This is a total long-shot, but I was wondering if anyone knows of any good vets in Milton Keynes, in particular ones that are good with rats.

My rats had a check-up recently and I wasn't too happy with the vet I saw as he wasn't as through as I would have liked, and wasn't too knowledgeable about rats either. So, I'm looking for another one because if my rats ever get sick (I'm hoping they won't of course, but I'm not willing to take the chance) I'd like to be able to take them to someone I trust.

So if anyone has a recommendations (even just for vets regardless of being good with rats or not) I would very much appreciate it.

I have no idea if they're any good with rats but we take our dog to Willow Veterinary Group in Newport Pagnell and have never had any complaints

Thanks! Unfortunately Newport Pagnell is a bit too far out as I live in Two Mile Ash and don't drive, but it's nice to have the recommendation for when I do drive (hopefully soon). I've actually visited the Astonlee Vets in Newport Pagnell with friends, and they seemed quite good too (that was with cats though).

I use This group for both my cat and my tortoise. Dunno about rats, but they do have a reptile specialist, so they seem to have a fairly wide range. I've been to both Stony Stratford and Willen branches and they're both great.

Thanks! The Stony Stratford branch of that would be great for me, but they sort of put me off because a year or so ago I had a rabbit and was told by one of the vets at the Stony branch not to bother vaccinating against VHD. Since it wasn't me paying for the vaccine I couldn't really argue, but said rabbit (and others) died from VHD a couple of months later, so it has sort of put me off going back.

That doesn't mean they're not knowledgable or good, and the staff I met were actually been great (apart from this one vet I now don't trust), especially when my rabbit was so obviously sick - I just got a bit put off by the whole vaccination thing.
