Avian and Exotic Medicine

Pet owners are accustomed to taking the family dog or cat to the veterinarian for an annual checkup. It is even more important for a pet bird and exotic companion animals to have regular examinations because symptoms of diseases in these pets can be difficult to identify. We understand their unique health needs and can provide diagnostic, therapeutic, and surgical services, as well as counseling on nutrition, behavior, and general care. Consequently, an annual health check is essential in the prevention or early detection of illness.
