Welcome to the Exotic and Bird Clinic of New England

Board-Certified Veterinary Specialist

A team based on excellence begins with one person’s vision. In 1986, Dr. Michael Dutton began serving Benson’s Animal Park in Hudson, NH as their primary veterinarian. Caring for elephants, alligators, and Siberian tigers fed his constant thirst for learning and the journey began.

Now over 30 years later, Dr. Dutton has since become one of a handful of triple-board certified specialists in the world with a Canine and Feline Specialty, an Avian Specialty, and an Exotic Companion Mammal Specialty. To help further veterinary knowledge of exotic pets, he founded the Association of Exotic Mammal Veterinarians (www.aemv.org).

He regularly lectures to veterinary students, veterinary nurses, veterinarian and clubs on exotic animals and other subjects.

The Exotic and Bird Clinic of New England also volunteers its services for wildlife rehabilitators, the NH Audubon (www.nhaudubon.org), and the NH Fish and Game Department. While repairing the wing of a bald eagle is pretty cool, the experience this wildlife care provides the team is invaluable. The team can explore medical care options without limitations. Caring for an injured fox teaches care for other small mammals; handling endangered and threatened snakes gave the staff confidence in handling reptiles. Dr. Dutton has performed orthopedic surgeries on hundreds of raptors.

Adding this experience to his study and his team’s on-going education gives your exotic pet a team skilled and experienced like no other.
