Avian and Exotic Medicine in Waltham


Brendan Noonan, DVM, DABVP (Avian Medicine) and Patrick Sullivan, DVM, DABVP (Avian Medicine) are board certified avian specialists who serve our avian and exotic patients at our MSPCA-Angell West hospital in Waltham.  Our doctors are available by appointment for primary care of avian and exotic cases. Our specialists are also happy to consult with yoIMG_3338ur primary care veterinarian for cases that may be referred to Angell’s Avian and Exotic Medicine Service.

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.

Members of the Angell Avian and Exotic team, including Drs. Noonan and Sullivan, and Elisabeth Simone-Freilicher DVM, DABVP (Avian Medicine) in our Boston hospital, have completed special training in exotic medicine, including rabbit and rodent dentistry, medical and surgical treatment of ferret diseases, and reptile medicine and surgery.
