    I love Dr. Rich and his accociates. This is a clean, loving facility. I brought my ferret, Jilly here since she was a baby and I highly recommend them. She was boarded here and her health took a turn, Dr. Rich and his staff called me to tell me all of the information that took place. My Jilly passed about two weeks ago, but her health was W.E. Esplanade Clinic's first concern. She was 7 years old, she was loved and will be missed.

    Thank you Dr. Rich.

  • Excellent Care for Your Pet Bird or Exotic

    Anyone who have every had a sick pet knows the importance of a great vet, I can speak from personal experience. Dr. Greg Rich is by far the best avian vet in the area. Dr. Rich has over 20+ years of experience with only avian (birds) and exotic animals. Just like people would seek a specialist, Dr. Rich is exactly that for your pet bird. I would not trust my little guy to anyone but Dr. Rich!

    His clinic was severely damaged from the Hurricane Katrina flooding but is now totally rebuilt and better than ever. West Esplanade also offers boarding (or ""bird camp"" as we call it!) if you are going out of town and your feather friend's need a qualified caretaker.

    If you have a pet bird (or exotic) or are considering becoming the caretaker of one, you need to get to know Dr. Rich.
