New Patients Are Always Welcome at Avian and Exotic Veterinary Care
At Avian and Exotic Veterinary Care we welcome new patients of practically every species. Whether you are a new owner or caring for a senior pet, we can assist you in providing your companion with the veterinary care they need. From routine wellness care to advanced surgeries, we are experienced in treating animals that are rarely accepted as patients by traditional practices. We look forward to serving you and your avian or exotic companion.
- Monday – Tuesday: Closed
- Wednesday – Friday: 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.
- Saturday – Sunday: 12 p.m. – 5 p.m.
We will be closed Saturday, September 23rd through Thursday, September 28th, so that Dr. Harrenstien can attend the joint annual conference of the American College of Zoological Medicine, the Association of Reptilian and Amphibian Veterinarians, the Association of Exotic Mammal Veterinarians, and the American Association of Zoo Veterinarians. Even though we are closed during that time, feel free to submit appointment requests and client registration forms on-line, or leave us a voicemail or email, because we will be checking for those. Happy Fall!
Appointments are strongly preferred, due to our small staff and personalized care. Walk-ins will be accepted based on availability. We accept appointments from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Wednesday - Friday, and 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
What to Bring
Once you have scheduled your appointment, we ask that you please fill out our new client form and submit it online or print it and bring it with you to your visit. In addition, we also ask that you please bring all of your pet’s previous veterinary records; this is especially important if we are seeing your pet for a second-opinion exam, or if we are going to be coordinating your pet’s care with another veterinarian. Your referring veterinarian may fax or email your pet’s previous veterinary records to us before your appointment.
