Some information about our clinic
Our clinic for birds and reptiles is one of only five highly specialised university clinics in Germany. We are the only clinic to offer a certified European training programme for birds and reptiles. Numerous cooperations with experts from Germany and abroad enable us to provide expert care and treatment for our often exotic patients.
Expert staff for our patients
Expert veterinarians specialised in birds and reptiles work at our clinic. They are either European or nationally certified.
Our patients are pet birds, birds of prey, pigeons, pedigree poultry, diseased wild birds as well as lizards, snakes and turtles. We examine or treat them for purchase examination, husbandry advice or in case of illness.
About 80 animals can be treated in the clinic at the same time. The outpatient and inpatient care of bird and reptile patients is carried out by our expert team according to the latest scientific findings and using the most modern medical technology.
Cooperation with other institutions
Depending on the need, we cooperate with various established facilities within and outside our faculty to enable rapid, safe and targeted diagnostics. Our comprehensive range of diagnostic services includes imaging procedures, laboratory diagnostics and post-mortem diagnostics.
Research at our clinic aims to optimise diagnostic and treatment options in avian and reptile medicine. In addition, we carry out various research projects, for example on animal-friendly husbandry or on the approval of medicines for ornamental and productive poultry.
