    Sari Kanfer

Shortly before vet school she became hooked on rabbits and later followed her addiction to the west coast. After 10 years of building a great clientele in the exotic pet community, she opened the Exotic Animal Care Center as a full service hospital dedicated to high quality, compassionate veterinary care for avian and exotic pets. Dr. Kanfer believes that no matter how small or unusual your pet is, it deserves the best veterinary medicine has available.

Testimonials

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "I love my rabbits and Dr. Kanfer is the bunny whisperer. She knows everything about rabbits and was able to help my two bunnies. Dr. Kanfer also helped me with my boy (when she was booked) when I went to another vet and I was still able to call Dr. Kanfer who actually called the vet I went to and talked about my bunny’s status. And of course, I followed up with Dr. Kanfer."
    -Laura Sirikulvadhana
  • "Many vets say they work with bunnies, but they don’t! I had two terrible experiences with vets that almost killed my little rabbit. When I found Dr. Kanfer, I was desperate! THIS IS THE MOST WONDERFUL DOCTOR …EVER!!! She is the leading expert and immediately knew what to do to save my girl. She genuinely cares for these animals. Plus, everyone at the clinic was so kind and gentle with my little rabbit. I’m so deeply grateful to Dr. Kanfer."
