Exotics Urgent Care FAQs

In the past, the Avian and Exotics department would try to accommodate urgent and emergency cases whenever possible. After hours and overflow cases were seen by our emergency department. From now on, Exotics Urgent Care will handle emergency and urgent cases, and the Avian and Exotics department will handle all scheduled appointments and provide more in-depth and routine care for your exotic pets.

When Exotics Urgent Care is closed, you can bring your pet to our Emergency room at ACCESS  – Los Angeles. However, if it’s not a critical situation, we recommend you time your visit when Urgent Care is open so that your pet can be seen by the doctors that work exclusively with exotic pets.

Yes, our emergency department at ACCESS – Los Angeles will be able to handle avian and exotic pets when urgent care is unavailable.  However, due to a sharp increase in demand for veterinary care, our ER is often busy, and wait times might be long. If your pet condition is not critical, we recommend bringing your pet in during urgent care hours.

Unfortunately for legal and practical reasons, without an examination, we cannot provide specific medical advice for your pet over the phone.

The initial exam is $115. Additional tests, procedures, medications, foods are extra. We will give you an estimate and discuss your options before proceeding with the course of treatment.
