There are only 3 other exotics only hospitals in the country that have an in-house CT designated for these species and we are very proud to join this group. The intern will have primary care responsibilities for all wildlife. We provide veterinary care for 2 licensed wildlife rescue organizations, and the intern will provide veterinary care to wildlife at the Wild Bird Fund once a week. We are affiliated with a 501 c (3) non-profit organization: Rift Valley Wildlife Clinics ( Our case load is currently based on more than 50% emergencies.

Our clients expect state of the art care for their avian and exotic animal companions. A visit to the practice is a pre-requisite to be considered for this position.
