Welcome to the Companion Exotic Animal Medicine & Surgery Service at the UC Davis Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital, where we provide wellness care, specialized diagnostic testing, medical treatments, surgical options and emergency care for exotic companion animals.

Animals seen by the service include:

  • Birds
  • Turtles
  • Rabbits
  • Snakes and other retiles
  • Fish
  • Frogs and other amphibious animals
  • Others

Our clinicians have extensive expertise and experience in exotic animal medicine. Our team leaders are board certified in Zoological Medicine, Avian Practice, and Animal Welfare.

A mobile service is available for flock or herd examinations in breeding facilities or other large collections.

To schedule an appointment for your exotic pet, please call 530-752-1393.

During daytime hours, the Companion Exotic Animal Medicine & Surgery Service also provides care for injured and sick wildlife and works in conjunction with the California Raptor Center to rehabilitate injured birds of prey for release back to the wild. PLEASE NOTE: We do not accept injured bats, deer, raccoons, opossums or healthy baby birds that have fallen out of a nest, as we do not have capacity to support these animals.
