Advanced Medicine & Diagnostics

Exotic pets all have their own specific care requirements, diets, and medical conditions. Unfortunately, they are also masters at hiding signs of illness. That means by the time they show you they are sick, they may be very sick. This makes an examination with an experienced veterinarian essential as soon as you see any abnormalities. Recognizing that time is often of the essence, we built Avian & Exotic Animal Hospital of Georgia in the Savannah area with the capability to see your pet, diagnose the problem, and start treatment as soon as possible.

We have an in-house laboratory with a special bloodwork analyzer capable of running a blood panel on a very small amount of blood. Other in-house tests we can perform include fecal exams, urinalysis, and cytology. We can also obtain samples for send-out tests as well. Most of our patients cannot swallow pills, so we also offer in-house compounding of medications into liquids, specially flavored for your pet’s taste! We have specialized equipment such as small incubators for providing heat and oxygen if needed. We also feature an ICU facility in the main area of the hospital, where staff can provide constant observation of our patients.
