Your Special Pet Needs an Exotic Vet!
SC's Premier Avian & Exotic Veterinary Hospital
Exotic Vet Care (formerly Birds and Exotics Animal Care) is South Carolinas premiere veterinary practice dedicated to the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders affecting birds, reptiles and other exotic animals (ferrets, guinea pigs, hedgehogs, rabbits, fish, etc). We are currently the only state of the art veterinary hospital in South Carolina created especially for the needs of birds and exotic animals. Our founder, Jose Biascoechea, DVM, Dipl. ABVP (Avian Practice) is the only Board-Certified avian specialist in the state of South Carolina. We also accept referral cases from veterinarians throughout the state and surrounding areas. Why see a specialist? Traditional veterinary education usually does not adequately prepare veterinarians for the care of unusual pet species. Mammals, birds, reptiles, fish and amphibians all have their own anatomy and physiology, and treating their illnesses requires knowledge of this diversity. When veterinarians attempt to treat these special species as if they were cats and dogs, serious harm can occur. Veterinarians treating exotic and non-traditional pets must make the commitment to learn about these special species, and spend continuing education time keeping up on the latest advancements in exotic pet care. At Exotic Vet Care, our focus on these species allows us to provide the highest and most advanced level of care possible. Its what we do all day, every day.

Our birds and exotics-only boarding facility caters to the special needs of our patients. Boarders receive high-quality diets and treats according to their needs as well as lots of interaction and attention from our doctors, nurses and staff, and are maintained in a stress-free environment that is the next best thing to being home.
Pets who have not been on an ideal diet will benefit from our dietary conversion process, which is done under careful supervision and at no additional charge for boarders in need of assistance. Medication administration, grooming and other services as needed are always available for our boarders.
We are open 9am - 1pm on the first and third Saturdays of each month for merchandise sales and visits by appointment.
