Effective Immediately, as of 10/31/22: Please Note that we have a New Paging System! Our old pager number is no longer active. Our new Emergency Paging System is as follows:
**You no longer need to call a separate number to page the doctor on call when you are having a pet emergency.
**If it is after our business hours, please call our Main Number (480-706-8478), and then once the After-Hours Message begins, there will be an option to be transferred to our Emergency Paging System.
**Once transferred, the call will ring through to the doctor on call. If the doctor misses your call, you will be prompted to leave a brief message with only your Name and Phone Number. It is important that you Speak Slowly and Clearly so that the doctor is able to promptly return your call.
**Emergency Calls to this system will only be returned if our office is closed, AND it is between the hours of 8:00 AM and 10:00 PM.
**This is not a 24-hour system and calls will not be returned overnight.
We are excited to announce that we are hiring for three different positions at Avian & Exotic Animal Clinic of AZ! Each position has its own set of pre-requisites so please be sure to read them carefully BEFORE submitting an application.

COVID-19 Update: July 2, 2021:
Dear valued pet owners of the Avian and Exotic Animal Clinic of Arizona:
This last year has presented numerous challenges for all people across our beloved planet. Here at the AEAC, it has been no different. We have truly missed you; our energy levels have diminished because we cannot engage, communicate and interact with you in the ways that satisfy the “Why” of why we practice exotic animal medicine. We appreciate your trust in caring for your pets during this pandemic. You have been amazing. Please know we have always strived to navigate our way through this pandemic thoughtfully while considering the viewpoints and concerns of our diverse client base.
With that said, beginning Monday April 5th we will move to the next phase of our COVID Protocols, which will include the following guidelines:
As many of you are aware, the Governor's announcement regarding masks last week has presented an opportunity for businesses like ours to reevaluate our mask-wearing policy. We also know that case numbers usually lag after restrictions ease so this will require reassessing with the hopefully declining numbers of COVID positives. In an effort to allow more of the vulnerable population to become vaccinated, but at the same time give others a light at the end of the tunnel, we wanted to inform you that we will continue to reassess these protocols as we carefully watch the COVID positive case numbers in our state. It is our hope that by maintaining consistent protocols, we will all be able to be mask-free in the very near future.
This is a complex and divisive issue, and we are striving to find a balanced approach as we move forward. We know that no one answer will please everyone. We are thanking you in advance for respecting the sovereignty of our path forward and out of this pandemic. Should you feel the need to voice your scientific opinion, please direct it at me, Todd Driggers at email@example.com, as debates with the staff will only delay the competent care we wish to provide your pets, and other clinic patrons’ pets. We have lost several clients which we consider part of our AEAC family and we want you to know; we see you and share in your grief. Thank you for helping us work through the means to the end of this unpredictable disease.
Thank you all for your support during this time. We would not be here if it were not for our caring pet owners and their wonderful pets.
The Staff of the Avian and Exotic Animal Clinic of Arizona
March 22, 2021:
♥♥♥ RHDV2 Vaccines are here!! ♥♥♥
As promised, we were able to get the new shipment of RHDV2 vaccines in time for your Annual Booster, and at half the price! The RHDV2 Vaccine is now available for first vaccines as well as annual boosters. Since the State requires all vaccinated rabbits to have permanent identification, we are now also able to offer a Vaccine/Microchip Combo Special! (Existing ID, such as ear tattoos and microchips, are accepted.)
You can add the vaccine to your already scheduled appointment, or you can schedule a new appointment. If you received your first vaccine here in AZ then you have time - you are likely not due for your annual until this coming Summer.
If you are new though, please plan ahead! Appointments are currently booking approximately 2-3 weeks out so feel free to use our APP to request an appointment or contact us via email as well. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for any additional questions about appointments and pricing. Thank You!
