The Avian/Exotic Database


The Avian & Exotic Database is comprised of VJ Index citations focused specifically for the avian or exotic veterinary practitioner.  It also includes all citations that are not species-specific or that reference multiple species, or have to do with veterinary business or education.   (It will not include uniquely Small Animal, Food Animal, or Equine citations, which is why many zoos subscribe to the Zoo Animal Database).  Many practitioners and clinicians worldwide use this as a central means of quickly finding the reference material they need to treat the wide range of avian and exotic animal health problems and challenges associated with every thriving practice. Many also use VJ Index as a way to keep current with the newest research and practice techniques.

Warning: the Veterinary Journal Index database is designed to be used only to find journal articles, and is not intended as a substitute for those articles.  No guarantees are made of accuracy or completeness of this database.
