The Exotic Animal Medicine Service at North Carolina State University has officially opened its doors! We are located in the Health and Wellness Center, as a part of the NC State Veterinary Hospital. We strive to provide a safe and caring environment for your pet bird, small mammal, reptile, amphibian, fish, or invertebrate. We ask that you arrive with your pet in a carrier; this will help keep them safe from other animals that may be in the lobby, and will help reduce stress. We also ask that you bring a sample of your pet’s diet to your appointment. Upon check-in, you and your pet will be escorted into an exam room where someone will talk with you about your animal’s lifestyle, diet, and current and previous medical concerns.

Please call 919-513-6999 if you have any questions about our service, or to make an appointment. You can also email us at If you are having an emergency outside of business hours, please call 919-513-6911.
