Staten Island Animal Hospital

Exotic Animal Medicine

Staten Island Animal Hospital offers exotic animal medicine for your exotic pet, providing diagnostics and treatment of birds, reptiles, and mammals including rabbits, ferrets and pocket pets, among others. As care for these special pets differs dramatically from that of a pet cat or dog, our hospital also maintains a library of species-specific educational resources for pet owners with exotic pets. If you have questions or concerns about your pet, would like additional information about his or her care or to schedule an appointment, please contact our hospital at 718-698-1400, and we'll be happy to assist you and your special and unique friend.


Staten Island Animal Hospital is pleased to provide an Exotic Pet Care Library containing an array of species-specific pet care educational materials about the care of these very special and unique pets. Please feel free to browse and download the documents from our library below.


Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.

As part of the VCA family, we have over 83 specialty hospitals across the US and Canada which provide referral specialty care, so there may be one near you. Our specialized services include: behavior, cardiology, critical care, dentistry, dermatology, integrative medicine, internal medicine, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, radiology, rehabilitation, reproduction, and surgery.
