Exotic Animal Urgent Care
Urgent care is by appointment only. Long Island Bird & Exotics is not a walk-in clinic.
Please note that due to high call volume for urgent appointments, we cannot guarantee that we can see your pet in an emergency.
After Hours Urgent Care
Long Island Bird & Exotics Veterinary Clinic takes emergency messages until midnight and will call you back as soon as possible. Please note that the on-call doctor is not in the hospital after hours and will come in on an emergency basis only as determined by the doctor. If you feel your pet is in need of urgent care and you did not receive a call back, please refer to a 24-hour emergency clinic such as Veterinary Emergency Group in Carle Place 516-693-8859 or Animal Medical Center in Manhattan 212-838-8100.
Non emergency calls will be replied to in the following morning.
In face of Covid-19 restrictions and staff shortness, we cannot guarantee that after hours emergency services will be provided at all times.
