Birch Island Veterinary Center is proud to be an all-inclusive veterinary hospital featuring cutting edge diagnostic, surgical & dental equipment in addition to offering all the fundamental wellness services your pet needs to stay healthy and happy. Dogs and cats have separate treatment areas as to maintain a calmer atmosphere for both. We strive to provide all of our clients and patients with exceptional comprehensive care in a compassionate, supportive manner while easing any anxieties you or they may have.

Dr. Robyn Borger is our exotic pet specialist as of May 1st, 2024. Her patients include reptiles such as tortoises, turtles, lizards & non-venomous snakes as well as legally licensed and owned foxes, skunks, opossums, kinkajous & raccoons (all wildlife owners must have proof of their Class III Permit to Possess). Like other veterinarians at our practice, Dr. Borger also sees rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, hedgehogs, chinchillas, sugar gliders and other “pocket pets”. In addition to routine & advanced medical care for all these animals, she also provides surgical services including spays (rabbits, foxes, kinkajous), neuters, mass removals, dental procedures and more.

Thank you!


Emergencies are accepted anytime that our clinic is open. If you feel your pet needs emergency treatment, please call for assistance or come in immediately. If possible, phone ahead so that our staff can better prepare for your arrival. We have veterinary personnel on duty six days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any critical care your pet may require. Some examples of life-threatening situations include being hit by a car, ingestion of a poison or toxin (rodenticides, medications not intended for pets, grapes, raisins, chocolate, toxic plants, etc), collapse and trouble breathing.

We are also available for urgent care when the condition is concerning but not necessarily an emergency. If you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment, our veterinarians will work to fit you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate of how long you may have to wait to be seen.
