Exotic and Avian
We see a variety of exotic pets at Bellevue Animal Hospital, including birds such as parakeets and cockatoos; iguanas, chameleons, and bearded dragons; guinea pigs, hamsters, gerbils, and rats; hedgehogs; rabbits; turtles and tortoises; chinchillas; and ferrets. Dr. Linda Rock-Paul takes care of the majority of our exotic patients, while Dr. Tammy Pfeiffer takes care of the guinea pigs and chinchillas. Please note that due to the specialized nature of veterinary care for these pets, appointments with these veterinarians may only be available during certain office hours. For more information about caring for your exotic pet, please see the following pages. If you have any questions or concerns, give us a call at 402-291-1255!
