What is Avian, Exotics, and Zoological Medicine?

The avian, exotic, and zoological medicine service offers the highest quality diagnostic and treatment care for pet birds, reptiles, and small exotic mammals such as ferrets, mice, rats, hedgehogs, sugar gliders, guinea pigs, chinchillas, and rabbits. We are one of only a few zoological medicine services in operation at veterinary colleges worldwide.

Our faculty have more than 40 years experience caring for exotic animals. Working in conjunction with other specialty services within the Veterinary Teaching Hospital (internal medicine, soft tissue and orthopaedic surgery, anesthesia, cardiology, dermatology, neurology, oncology, and ophthalmology), we offer wold class care for our patients.

Our service also partners with several local and regional organizations that care for avian and exotic animals.

Animals we commonly treat include:

  • Rabbits
  • Ferrets
  • Guinea pigs
  • Chinchillas
  • Sugar gliders
  • Rodents
  • Birds
  • Reptiles
  • Amphibians
  • Fish
  • Spiders
  • Scorpions

​We are fully integrated into the Veterinary Teaching Hospital, which means we have access to all of the state-of-the-art equipment and expertise in all of our specialty areas, such as Anesthesia and Pain Management and Diagnostic Imaging. This allows us to provide comprehensive care for your animal.
