Specialized Care for Avian & Exotic Pets was formed in August 2008. Originally temporarily located at the Broadway Veterinary Clinic in Lancaster, NY, the service was designed to provide comprehensive primary healthcare and progressive referral medical, surgical and behavioral services for the companion bird, small mammal or reptile as well as urgent care for native wild animal species. We currently do not treat venomous species or wild rabies-vector species (raccoons, bats). We are also able to treat fish on a limited basis. Routine and emergency services are provided during all open hours whenever possible.
We moved to our permanent Clarence, NY location in July 2012. We are proud to be the first practice in Western New York, Eastern Ohio and Western Pennsylvania dedicated exclusively to the care of exotic pets. Since our move, we are also able to provide boarding for our patients. Our clients are seriously committed to their pet’s health and eager to seek the highest quality veterinary care available.
