Regarding COVID-19, New York Sate has confirmed that veterinary services are an essential service, and we will remain open during this outbreak. Our hours will remain the same (every day 9am-7pm). We are accepting wellness visits on a limited basis. Additionally, we will not be allowing clients, or anyone, into the practice. Pets must be placed on the table outside our door. Owners should call the office, place the carrier on the table, and step 6 feet back in order for our staff to retrieve the pet. The appointment will happen over the phone with the doctor and using online bill paying and document signing. We currently are still boarding pets, with our usual boarding requirements. We know this is a scary time for everyone, and we hope that our willingness to care for your beloved pets who may be sick during this times is a comfort to you. -

Our commitment to helping your pets in this difficult time has led us to a new virtual consultation platform called TeleVet. This service will allow you to communicate with our vets and nurses to help navigate the health of your pet from home.

  • "Customer Review: Everybody at the Center for Avian and Exotic Medicine is extremely knowledgable, compassionate, and clearly loves animals. They take a personal interest in the pet, as well as its human companion."
  • "Customer Review: I brought my Guinea Pig to Avian & Exotic Medicine and in my opinion they are GREAT because of their services. The staff (Up Front, Nurse & Doctor) were all very friendly and helpful. They treated my pet and myself with respect and I look forward to go back. If you have an exotic
    pet, it is the place to go with your pet. Even the prices were very reasonable."
  • "Customer Revew: Even though they were fully booked-up, the Center squeezed me in, examined her, & gave me the supplies & directions to try getting her digestion & appetite going again at home, which worked well. By the following morning, she was starting to perk up, & the day after, she was almost back to normal. Everyone was friendly & supportive & kind, which I really needed that day."
