VCBE is the only American Animal Hospital Association-accredited bird and exotics specialty referral hospital in NY, and the only hospital caring exclusively for birds and other exotic animals in Westchester and surrounding counties.
We specialize in the treatment of birds, rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, chinchillas, smaller rodents (rats, mice, gerbils, hamsters, degus), reptiles, amphibians, and less commonly seen exotic species such as wallabies, kinkajous, fennec foxes, and opossums. (We do not treat dogs or cats.) Everything at the Veterinary Center was designed with the special needs of exotic pets in mind. Dr. Hess, the Centers board-certified bird specialist, who is one of only about 130 bird specialists in the world and who served as president of the international Association of Avian (Bird) Veterinarians from 2009-2010, has over 16 years of experience in caring for these special pets.
Hours: Mon - Thurs 8am - 7pm; Fri 8am - 5pm;
Sat 9am - 1pm; Sun (Emergencies by apppointment only)
