Family Veterinary Hospital welcomes all types of pets. While we love cats and dogs, we also see ferrets, guinea pigs, rabbits, birds and lizards. Our staff has personal experience in many of these exotic pets. Dr. Chau raised a 4-foot iguana named White Birch, and also had 3 birds (which she later adopted out when her kids were born due to allergies and salmonella risk).
Some may know Dr. Chau from her experience as a relief vet in the DC metro area. She worked with a well-known ferret specialist for several years in Maryland, and also substituted for an avian specialist in Virginia. Dr. Chau completed an externship with Kaytee research lab in Wisconsin where she was able to assist with research on all types of exotic birds.
We understand that not all of our family members are on 2 or 4 legs. Feel free to bring your family pet for a checkup or exam, whether they walk, crawl, scamper or fly! Or in the case of White Birch, she would jump and make daily raids on the birds’ food to then go back and bask in the warmth of her heat-lamp digesting the bounty of her ambush 🙂
