Full boarding services are available for mammals and reptiles throughout the year. Every possible effort is made to make your pets comfortable while you are away. For reptiles, we have cages that we can safely move outside so that they can get sunlight during the day. The rabbits get fresh greens daily and the ferrets are allowed "scamper time" in the exam rooms daily.

Broward Avian & Exotic Animal Hospital works closely with the Wildlife Care Center and The Miami Chapter of the House Rabbit Society (see links page) to adopt out rescued and abandoned rabbits to loving new homes.
Routine surgical services such as spaying and neutering are available in addition to advanced orthopedic and soft tissue surgical care for birds, reptiles and mammals.
Broward Avian & Exotic Animal Hospital is fully equipped with a Stortz 2.7mm rigid endoscopy unit. This endoscopy system can be used for a wide variety of applications such as surgical sexing of birds, exploratory surgeries for organ biopsies in birds and reptiles as well as many uses in our mammalian patients. Dr. Kelleher has had advanced formal training in endoscopy.
The Ultrasound equipment allows us to perform detailed, noninvasive evaluations of the heart and abdominal organs of all species. Dr. Kelleher has received advanced formal training in ultrasonography.
Dr. Kelleher is available for consults with other veterinarians. At this time there is no charge for consults regarding their cases. Although individual pet owners will often call from out of state for consults on their pets on behalf of their veterinarians, we maintain a strict policy of vet to vet only consults. This is done for the best interest of your pet. It is very important that clients maintain a good relationship with their local veterinarian. Also, by speaking directly to the veterinarian there is less likelihood of subtle, vital nuances of a medical case being communicated incorrectly or misinterpreted.
Our "non-tradional" exotic pet patients require just as much, if not more preventive and wellness care than their dog and cat counterparts. We recommend a wellness exam as soon as possible after you obtain your new pet. This allows us the opportunity to help you get your new family member set up with the best possible diet, care and husbandry right from the start. Unfortunately, improper diet is too often responsible for a very high percentage of illness in avian and exotic patients. Dr. Kelleher, as well as our staff, enjoy taking time to teach clients about proper handling, behavior feeding and care of their pets.
Pre-purchase or pre-adoption counseling is also available and encouraged. There are many, many new and more exotic species available in the pet trade each year. We strongly encourage clients to call or come in so that we can help counsel you regarding the special characteristics and needs of the exotic pet you are interested in BEFORE you purchase or adopt them. This helps ensure a good match for you and your family as well as the best possible care for the pet you choose.
