Community Outreach


Bird & Exotic Pet Referral Center

Since 1993, we have been serving the very specialized population of pet birds and exotic animals including rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, sugar gliders, chinchillas, turtles, frogs, lizards, and snakes. We offer years of experience and veterinary training in handling and treating non-traditional pet patients.

We offer a board-certified avian specialist to serve our unique and diverse bird patients. We are one of only three AAHA-accredited Avian Specialty Referral Hospitals in the nation!
