The Auburn University Veterinary Clinic has expanded its service to include avian and exotic animals. Expanding the avian and exotic creates opportunities for veterinary students to receive hands-on experience in exotic and avian animals while providing wellness and advanced veterinary care for these companion animals, according to the university.

The service will see all birds, any non-venomous snakes and other exotics, but will not see primates. Exotics include reptiles, turtles, lizards, ferrets, guinea pigs, hedge hogs; birds include pet chickens.

Seth Oster, DVM, an assistant clinical professor in the Department of Clinical Sciences, oversees the Companion Animal Avian and Exotic Service and is the primary veterinarian for the service. He is also the primary veterinarian for the Southeastern Raptor Center (SRC) and oversees the birds of prey rehabilitation service of the SRC.
