My name is Dr. Fritz Karbe, my team and I have a veterinary practice in Leinburg-Diepersdorf – a town just north-east of Nuremberg, between the cities of Lauf and Altdorf.
I am an American citizen and you will therefore not have a language barrier in our practice – so don't hesitate and make an appointment with us.
Our practice focuses on small animals and exotics. In addition to „normal“ cats and dogs, we look after sick avian, reptile, and fish patients as well as exotic mammals.
Our practice has a specialisation for Zoo and Wild Animals as well as for Aquatic Animals. We help local authorities with escaped or dangerous animals, using blowpipes, dart- and net guns.
We are only 46km/35min from Sulzbach-Rosenberg via Highway A6. Coming from Vilseck we are 70km/50min away via B85 and A9.
In order to prevent longer waiting times we request you make an appointment each time you come to our practice.
We would be happy to work together with your vet on base or elsewhere. Re-referrals as well as x-ray images or lab results can be quickly sent by email.
Are you planning to take your pet to the US or another country? We can advise you and help with the necessary documents.
Don´t forget to bring your VAT form. We prefer cash and EC-cards but we also accept credit cards.
