Avian and Exotic Medicine

Dr. Madden and Macaw

While dogs and cats are the most common household pets, other animals have become more and more popular as well.  Our doctors are comfortable treating birds, reptiles, and small mammals such as ferrets, rabbits, and rodents–in fact, we love the variety.  We offer vaccines where appropriate, as well as diagnostics, surgery, and advice regarding environment and nutrition.  We also have experience with dentistry and beak and nail trimming for many different species.  (We cannot resist noting that a few years ago Dr. Bodkin was pictured on the front page of the Coeur d’Alene Press while treating a big cat.  That was an unusual occurrence that is not generally a part of our practice. But it sure was fun and the cat was doing quite well the last we heard.)
