Avian, Exotic & Small Animal Care

We currently do not treat avian or exotic animals at Graylyn Crest Animal Hospital. But if you ever wanted to own a bird or exotic animal but shied away because you aren’t sure what’s involved? We have several doctors at our other hospitals that can help. They can help you decide what type and breed of avian and exotic is right for you with our pre-purchase consultation. Your personalized, in-depth discussion with an experienced veterinarian about avian and exotics will cover important topics such as:

  • Husbandry
  • Housing
  • Breed-specific medical concerns
  • Diet
  • Disease prevention
  • Wellness care

These consultations help prepare people for their new pets and their unique needs and are available to anyone considering bringing a bird or exotic into their home. Dr. Anthony Dallatore at Hockessin Animal Hospital or Dr. Morgan Dawkins and Dr. Lisa Haviland at Windcrest Animal Hospital a are available for consultation.
