Bay Area Bird Hospital is an exclusively exotics practice located in San Francisco, CA. We've been located in the outer sunset/parkside area of SF since 1989 and provide care for birds, rabbits, rodents and reptiles. While birds have always been the foundation of our practice, exotic companion mammals are increasing in popularity...and thus in frequency.
No dogs or cats allowed!
You do not need extensive exotic experience - Drs. Dustin and Marcucci are both Avian ABVP diplomats and are willing to train. Newer graduates will be considered. However, experience with dogs and cats (or other mammals) provides a good base to launch into exotics.
Exam times are usually 30 minutes (with 15 minute rechecks) and we set aside a 3 hour block for procedures in the middle of the day during the week. The practice is open 6 days a week - appointments are from 9-6 pm on weekdays and 10-3 pm on Saturdays although we would consider Sunday hours if that is what you are looking for.
Dr Dustin (who started the practice) is backing down on her working hours, thus the need for a new vet. The position is part-time (3 days a week) but if you are looking for a full time position please let us know - it is definitely a possibility. Initial training or "ramp up to release" will depend on experience level with exotics.
Do you have a special interest you'd like to bring to the practice? Are you considering becoming board certified? BABH is always working to stay current and welcomes new skills and ideas.
San Francisco is a great place to live - but, as a local, I may be biased. If big city life is not your thing, BABH is located in the southwest section of the city with easy access to busy suburbs such as Daly City and San Bruno as well as coastal towns (Pacifica and Linda Mar).
