Avian & Exotic Veterinarians

Avians (birds) and exotic companion animals require routine wellness visits to a veterinarian just like cats and dogs, but they have very different anatomy and physiology than furry, four-legged pets. Because of this, your family veterinarian may refer you to a veterinarian specializing in their care.

What to Expect During an Initial Visit

When you schedule your appointment, our team will share information about pre-registering for your visit and how to prepare, which may include making sure your pet has not eaten (if fasting is required) or bringing a list of their medications or foods. 

During your pet’s consultation, our team will review your pet’s medical records and discuss your pet’s lifestyle and health history with you. Your pet may need additional testing for a complete exam. 

We will talk with you about your pet’s diagnosis and treatment plan and answer any questions you may have. Our team partners with your family veterinarian to provide the best treatment options for your pet.
