Midwest Bird & Exotic Animal Hospital


Midwest Bird and Exotic Animal Hospital was established in 1985 as the first of its kind in the U.S., treating avian and exotic animals exclusively. Exotic pets have very individualized needs and our doctors and staff are specially trained to attend to these unique patients.

About Midwest Bird & Exotic Animal Hospital

If it has feathers or claws, we consider it exotic! Our team is trained in screening these very special pets for common diseases, as well as administering advanced care like surgery and dentistry to help unique animals with unique needs live longer, and healthier lives. We serve the greater Chicago area and are located in Elmwood Park.

Our staff at Midwest Bird & Exotic Animal Hospital values feedback from our clients. Here is just a small sample of the hundreds of happy and healthy pets that we have cared for since 1985.

From the time I walked in with my bunny to the time I picked him up the next day, the service was great. You can tell all the staff are animal lovers and care for your pet like it was their own. Great place to have for the special critters.

I love the fact that they specialize in exotic animals! They saved my guinea pigs lives! I also love how you can book anytime online, in addition, that they are open 24 hours for emergencies!

Kyle R.

I had an emergency with my bird and having this facility open 24/7 really sets them above all others. The knowledge and experience the staff has also gave me such a peace of mind knowing my feathered friend was in great hands!
