Bird & Exotic Pet Care


The Bird & Exotic Pet Referral Center is part of the South Wilton Veterinary Group. Established in 1993 by board-certified bird specialist Nick Sitinas, our practice is dedicated to providing equally excellent care to a variety of species – birds, rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, sugar gliders, chinchillas, frogs, turtles, lizards, snakes, and any other exotic companion animal.

We are one of the first (one of only three centers in the nation!) to receive AAHA accreditation as an Avian Specialty Referral Hospital. Our veterinarians and support staff have pursued special training in this area of veterinary medicine and possess years of hands-on experience with these non-traditional pets.
