Island Exotic Veterinary Care is in Huntington Station, New York. Our practice is on the North Shore and Central of Long Island with easy access to the area’s beautiful beaches. Huntington Station is one of the best places to live in New York for its sparse suburban feel and highly-rated schools. You can also take a quick trip by car or train to Manhattan or Connecticut. Huntington is a suburban area that has a historical feel but also has a lot of shopping, entertainment, and parks too.
Island Exotic Veterinary Care is a small, privately owned avian and exotic practice. We do not see dogs or cats, so everything about us is specialized. We provide primary care of companion exotic pets as well as handle referrals from other local veterinary practices too.
