We are the first and only practice in Western New York, Eastern Ohio and Western Pennsylvania exclusively devoted to the care of avian and exotic pets!  

Dr. Wade (Board Certified Avian Specialist), Dr. Burdeaux and Dr. Reed treat all types of birds, small mammals, reptiles, amphibians and fish. 

Your pet's health and well-being is very important to us, and we will take every step to give your pet the best possible care.

OUR MISSION IS: To provide comprehensive primary healthcare and progressive referral, medical, surgical and behavioral services for the companion bird, small mammal and reptile. Specialized Care for Avian & Exotic Pets is a full-service animal hospital and will take both emergency cases as well as less urgent medical, surgical, nutritional and dental issues. 

Our practice does NOT see dogs and cats, allowing our environment to be a less stressful experience for the exotic pets that we see.

 If you have any questions about our practice you may call our office at 716-759-0144 during business hours, or email us and we will do our best to respond within one business day.

Please do not email us with urgent issues - calling is the best way to reach us if you have an emergency!


Dr. Laura Wade is a Diplomate, ABVP (Avian) Certified... What does this mean?

"Diplomate" status is granted by the ABVP under the approval of the American Board of Veterinary Specialties, an official committee of the AVMA.  It is intended as a professional and public recognition of advanced knowledge, skills and competency.

To become certified, veterinarians must be graduates of an American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) - accredited veterinary college - Dr. Wade is a graduate of Cornell University.  They must complete a 2 year residency or 6 years of clinical practice with the species of interest, in which Dr. Wade has done both.  They must substantiate a significant case load, document at least 90 hours of continuing education, obtain 3 letters of recommendation, write 2 case reports and pass a difficult two-day written and practical examination.  Residents must also have a manuscript accepted for publication in a peer-reviewed journal.  Re-certification is required every 10 years.  Diplomates must re-certify by either re-taking the exam or showing proof of giving back to the community with continuing education by way of lecturing, publishing of medical papers and documentation of educational cases.

ABVP Diplomates have proven knowledge and expertise above and beyond what is required to practice veterinary medicine.  Beyond that, they have earned the privilege to specialize in the treatment of one or more categories of animals.
