There are many different vets in the U.S., but Dr. Susan Kelleher is one of a kind. Known as Dr. K, she runs South Florida’s Broward Avian and Exotic Animal Hospital.
Along with her staff, she’s had all types of patients. Some are relatively tame, but she’s also treated ferrets, marsupials, and even primates.
In addition to practicing medicine, Dr. K enjoys spending time with her family and their pets. She currently has a cat, three dogs, a Macaw, and a 100-pound African Spur Thigh tortoise.
Overall, Dr. K does not think domesticating wild animals is a good idea, but that doesn’t stop her with from taking care of them. “If it will fit through the door, I’ll treat it,” she says.
