Welcome to Island Exotic Veterinary Care

Exotic Animal and Bird Specialist in Huntington, NY

Call us at (631) 424-0300

IEVC is a unique animal hospital devoted to the care of pet birds, small mammals (like ferrets, rabbits, and guinea pigs), and reptiles. We do not take care of dogs and cats, so everything about us is specialized in exotic pet care only.

IEVC has veterinarians with advanced specialty training in birds and companion exotics. We provide a wide variety of services from pet care consultations, behavior advice, grooming, and vacation care, to advanced procedures, diagnostics, surgery, and therapy. All this in a warm, friendly, clean environment with a passionate, knowledgable, and cheery staff! We do not treat dogs or cats so that our more timid pets do not feel threatened or stressed.

We are happy to offer a number of resources that enable you to learn about how to take better care of your exotic companion. The best veterinary care for animals is ongoing nutrition and problem prevention, so becoming knowledgeable about preventative pet care is essential to the ongoing success of your animal’s health. If you have any questions, call (631) 424-0300 or email us and we'll be happy to help you. Our Huntington Station veterinarian office is very easy to get to -- just check out the map below!

  • I've had rats, rabbits, geckos, and a bird over the years. I would never take any of them anywhere else.

My neurotic rat always gets treats to help distract her from the exam and the staff enjoys playing with her and hearing stories. They have squeezed me in when emergencies have come up, and even wrote me a beautiful hand written letter when my bird passed. I'd had a vet suggest having my bird
