Who We Care For

Midwest Bird & Exotic Animal Hospital is a complete veterinary medical and surgical facility focusing on exotic pets, one of the few in the Chicago area. Midwest Bird & Exotic Animal Hospital opened more than 20 years ago in Westchester, a farther west suburb of Chicago, and moved to Elmwood Park in more recent years. We are now only 3 blocks west of the western border of Chicago, near Oak Park. We have veterinarians at the hospital 24 hours a day, year round. Our emergency hospital is just named differently (Midwest Animal Emergency Hospital) because we will also give veterinary care to cats and dogs on weekends, nights and holidays, but during regular day practice hours, our veterinarians see only exotic pets.

We care for a wide variety of exotic animals. Here's a peek at some of the fuzzy, feathered and fascinating faces that that have come into our office over the years.
