Dr. Sari Kanfer, originally from New York City, was able to escape the big city and attend veterinary school at Colorado State University. 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 Veterinary 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 available.
Dr. Kanfer is our small mammal guru and sees primarily rabbits, guinea pigs, and chinchillas. She has a special bond with the rabbits and is well-known for her huge amount of medical knowledge in treating them. Dr. Kanfer has extensive experience with dental diseases in rabbits and rodents. She has advanced training and over 20 years of experience, commonly performing complex dental abscess surgeries and extractions as well as routine tooth trimming.
Dr. Kanfer’s additional special interests involve cutting-edge veterinary care for mammals, and she provides advanced therapeutics, ranging from rhinotomies, blood transfusions, and feeding tubes, to abdominal surgeries, and cancer treatment. She also advises owners on mammal behavior and trains them to care for their geriatric and paralyzed pets.
