Our Expertise

The team of health care professionals that make up the LSU SVM Zoological Medicine Service has a focus of total health care for your bird, reptile, or small exotic companion animal. We not only provide quality health care for the patient but also place significant emphasis on client education as it relates to the husbandry and dietary needs of the diverse species treated. Client education brochures and food samples are commonly provided to clients as a way of reinforcing the information discussed during the visit. An office visit includes a complete physical examination along with a comprehensive examination of the patient’s environment, diet, and husbandry requirements that will affect the animal’s quality of life and long term health.
