"Now Offering Virtual Veterinary Care from the Comfort of Your Own Home"

We Offer Virtual Care

At Avian & Exotic Veterinary Housecall Service we strive to help you support the captive avian, herps, fish and other exotics you share your life and home with. We offer a variety of flexible consults from online visits*, to visits outdoors on site, drop off visits, and in-vehicle visits.

We strive to provide timely and accurate advice. We can help you with numerous concerns, from management of husbandry, diet, management of chronic issues, virtual assessment of urgent issues and behavioral consults. We can assist with determining the urgency of a situation and deciding whether your friend requires immediate care or whether you can wait to see us or alternatively provide some management at home. Clients can use this website to request medication refills, request appointments and share updates on their pet's progress with Dr. Nalezny.

*Telemedicine services are available to current clients with patients with an updated exam on file.
