William R. Pritchard Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital

Clinical Activities and Procedures

Specialized Medical and Surgical Services

Our clinicians work in conjunction with other specialty services within the VMTH (i.e. behavior, cardiology, dentistry, dermatology, neurology, oncology, and ophthalmology). This cooperative approach allows us to provide specialized medical and surgical options for your exotic pet, including oncology services for cancer.


Specialized Imaging Services

We provide specialized imaging services for small exotic patients including digital radiography, ultrasound, fluoroscopy (including gastrointestinal motility studies of avian patients), computed tomography (CT), MRI, and endoscopy. We perform all standard endoscopic procedures including tracheoscopy, bronchoscopy, gastrointestinal endoscopy, and laparoscopy, even for extremely small patients.


Dental Care for Small Mammals

Dental disease is very common in pet rabbits, chinchillas, guinea pigs and rats, and can have a profound effect on your pet's overall health. Working together with our Dentistry and Oral Surgery Service in a joint effort, we routinely perform comprehensive oral examinations and advanced dental imaging and dental procedures, such as occlusal adjustments and extractions.


Flock/Herd Mobile Service

A mobile service is available for flock or herd examinations in breeding facilities or other large collections. We provide consultation for specialized aviculture or breeding needs such as housing, nutrition, and overall medical management.
