This special branch of veterinary care focuses on Birds, Reptiles and Small Mammals. At Charlottesville Veterinary Hospital we realize that our Avian and Exotic pet friends are special. They need special care and a veterinary team dedicated to studying their particular needs. This is why we are members of the Association of Avian Veterinarians (AAV) and the Association of Exotic Mammal Veterinarians (AEMV). We also dedicate considerable continuing education hours towards the care of our exotic patients.
