Greater Charlotte NC’s Only Bird and Exotic Pet Veterinary Hospital

Griffin Exotics is the only bird and exotic pet veterinary hospital in the greater Charlotte, North Carolina area. We exclusively treat birds and exotic pets (such as rabbits, ferrets, chinchillas, hamsters, rats, snakes, lizards, etc). We strive for professional service with a personal feel. In fact, we’re on a first name basis with all of our patients. We know our clients trust us to provide care and comfort to their pets, a responsibility that we both relish and revere. After all, whether scaly or soft, feathered or furry, we know that your pets are family, too.


Griffin Exotics Veterinary Hospital exclusively treats these exotic pets:

  • SMALL MAMMALS or "Pocket Pets" (rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, chinchillas, rats, hedgehogs, hamsters, mice, gerbils, sugar gliders, degus, and other small rodents)
  • BIRDS (parrots of all descriptions, canaries, finches, and others)
  • REPTILES (non-venomous snakes, lizards, turtles and tortoises, salamanders, frogs, toads, newts and others)
  • OTHER PETS (fish including koi and goldfish, some invertebrates)

We do not see cats (including “Big” or “Exotic” cats), dogs, farm animals, monkeys, crocodilians, pot bellied pigs, venomous reptiles, dangerous animals as defined by the state (including foxes, skunks, raccoons, etc).

This little clinic is a great place!

Thus little clinic is a great place! They go above and beyond your expectations. I wouldn't take my rats anywhere else. They even sent me a card in the mail when one of my rats passed. They're the best; compassionate, welcoming and straight forward.
