That is WEIRD. The two Basking Ridge Animal Hospital vets are
supposed to be in the list. They are excellent. Again, they are Joe
Martins and Abe van Beveren, and the hospital number is
1-908-766-4211, and is easily enough reached from both 78 and 287.

Ben Otten is no longer at the AMC; he finished the specialization he
was doing there are moved on to the Mount Vernon, NY area. Kathy
Quesenberry (Yes, of _Ferrets, Rabbits, and Rodents_ fame) and others
are at AMC, though. The AMC tends to be expensive.

I've heard good things about Dr. Kim, too, but have never used him.
