We are a small animal practice that strives to practice high quality medicine and surgery. We see many exotics including birds, reptiles, and pocket pets. We have an underwater treadmill and a veterinarian with training in physical rehabilitation.
We also have a veterinarian with an interest in advanced dentistry and the ability to perform dental radiographs, surgical extractions, and root canals. We also have a veterinarian with an interest in behavior medicine and weight management.
Our 4th veterinarian has a strong interest in avian medicine and works with a raptor rehab center as well as the aviary in Pittsburgh. We do see after hours emergencies. We have an in house laboratory, x-ray, ultrasound, etc. We feel our practice would offer a veterinary student a well-rounded experience in small animal private practice.
