We are able to provide the most up-to-date medical and surgical care for your pet, while keeping in mind the unique needs of your exotic pet.

Our patients encompass a wide variety of species, including birds (parrots, passerines, chickens, waterfowl, other poultry, toucans/toucanet/aracari, and birds of prey), reptiles (lizards, geckos, turtles, tortoises, and snakes), amphibians (frogs, toads, axolotls, and salamanders), and various small mammals (rabbits, ferrets, chinchillas, guinea pigs, hedgehogs, prairie dogs, hamsters, gerbils, rats, mice, degus, and sugar gliders).
