Dr. Walter J. Rosskopf owner of the Avian & Exotic Animal Hospital in Hawthorne, California. Dr. Rosskopf has extensive experience in treating a wide variety of animals like birds, dogs, and cats in addition to some rather unusual and exotic pet companions like snakes, ferrets, hamsters, tarantulas, fish, and rabbits just to name a few. If your pet walks, flies, crawls, slithers, hops, swims or swings in the trees, the good doctor is here to help.

The doctor is assisted in his practice by an experienced technical staff which he has personally trained. Karen Lee Allen, "The Parrot Lady" ™, has had the distinct pleasure of working with Dr. Rosskopf for nearly twenty years. Dr. Rosskopf has earned local, national, and international recognition for his accomplishments and contributions regarding the veterinary care of caged birds and other companion exotic pets. As a matter of fact, our Dr. Rosskopf is one of approximately 70 certified avian veterinarians in the United States.

His work includes lecturing both here and abroad, the authorship of well over 100 professional journal articles, and written contributions to numerous textbooks. Their most recent published accomplishment is the textbook "Diseases of Cage & Aviary Birds", 3rd edition, for which both Dr. Rosskopf and his retired partner, Dr. Richard Woerpel, made substantial written contributions and were the coeditors. Dr. Rosskopf cheerfully accepts the responsibility of teaching veterinary students and other veterinarians who visit his hospital about companion exotic pet medicine and surgery. Last but certainly not least, our own Dr. Rosskopf often answers your questions on the Birdhotline's "Vet Talk" column giving lots of wonderful information and advice on pet birds.
