Here at the Center for Avian and Exotic Medicine we believe in fulfilling an educational component to our practice. We strive to share information on health issues that arise in the care of exotic animals, so that people who have these animals as pets can better understand what their care entails. We also have ideas (recipes) for the nutritional needs of various exotic creatures.

Whether through articles or actual case studies, we will continue to add new information when we can. Check back into our resources section from time to time to discover new things!
