Meet Our Veterinarian

  • Dr. Paul Stewart, DVM

    Dr. Paul Stewart opened the Avian and Exotic Pet Clinic of Roanoke in 2010 to provide emergency/after-hours veterinary care as well as daytime therapeutic and preventative care to all birds and exotic pets in an environment suitable for their healing.

    Dr. Stewart obtained his DVM at Kansas State University in 1996 and a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science at Virginia Tech in 1990. For 22 years, Dr. Stewart’s special interests include avian and exotic pet medicine, surgery, ultrasound, endoscopy, radiosurgery, dentistry, and geriatric medicine. He had been the primary care provider for birds and exotic pets in two veterinary practices for 14 years prior to opening this clinic.

    Dr. Stewart has been a guest lecturer at the Virginia/Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine, The Southwest Virginia Bird Club meetings and Annual Bird Fair, as well as the Roanoke Valley Bird Club. He completed externships at the Topeka Zoo, the National Wildlife Health Lab and has appeared on Animal Planet’s “Wildlife Emergency”. He is also Veterinarian-in-Charge at Mill Mountain Zoo.

    In Dr. Stewart’s spare time, he enjoys spending time with his family, antique car restoration, camping, canoeing, fly fishing, mountain biking, playing drums and guitar, and drawing wildlife. His family pets include tiny dog Tetley (a Chiweenie), Carris the cat, and Casper the “ghost” boa.
