Dr. Sullivan also serves these unique patients at our Waltham location alongside Anne Staudenmaier, VMD, DABVP (Avian Practice). These board-certified avian specialists are trained to offer wellness and emergency and critical care for avian and exotic pets.
Optimal wellness and emergency/critical care for avian, small mammal, reptile, fish, or other exotic pets requires experienced veterinary management, specialized diagnostic and treatment protocols, and equipment and facilities designed for these special species.
