Exotic Animal Veterinary Center has 3 full time and 2 part-time vets, and we just keep growing and growing! We see 100% avian and exotic pets and practice high quality, highly compassionate medicine. We believe in thorough work ups and advanced veterinary treatments, and we provide intensive care hospitalization. We receive frequent referrals from neighboring veterinarians and rescue groups. Our clientele is devoted and caring, and interested in thorough diagnostic work ups, proper treatments, and advanced procedures. It is extremely satisfying to work at a hospital where we are able to treat these special species the way they deserve to be treated and form a gratifying bond with these amazing clients that come from miles away just to see us.
Another perk at our hospital is working with our terrific and highly trained staff. Our technicians are very skilled and are comfortable handling, restraining, intubating, performing venipuncture on, caring for and administering treatments to all species. In addition, the technicians are responsible for comprehensive husbandry education and detailed demonstrations for the clients. This frees up the doctors to concentrate on diagnostics and managing cases. We have a fun work environment, and encourage a positive, drama-free, team approach.
Exotic Animal Care Center has all the toys: digital radiology, ultrasound, rigid endoscopy, in house laboratory including gram stain, Grady therapy laser, high quality dental machine, tonopen, anesthetic monitors, and we are paperless. We utilize a nearby facility for CT scans and radiation, and use a mobile ultrasound specialist as needed.

We currently see approximately 40% rabbits, 30% birds, and 30% reptiles and other animals, including ferrets, pet pigs and goats, wildlife, fish and invertebrates. Each doctor has their special interest, from rabbits to reptiles and wildlife, and the practice helps support and promote associate interests. Our hospital is well known for treating malocclusion and jaw abscesses in rabbits and rodents, and we receive frequent referrals for dental procedures.
