Services

Dr. Harris has accumulated over 40 years of skills and medical knowledge concerning birds, reptiles, and exotic mammals. In addition to caring for regular patients, Dr. Harris’s passion now is to pass on his experience to successive generations of veterinarians and exotic animal caretakers. In light of his dedication to do so, all fees are negotiable for onsite consulting services to universities, veterinary hospitals, wildlife rehabilitation centers, private or commercial exotic animal collections, etc. Expenses such as airfare, lodging, meals, etc. will always be directly passed through to clients.
