Stephanie Lamb, DVM, DABVP (Avian Practice)

Stephanie Lamb, DVM, DABVP (Avian Practice), received her veterinary degree from the University of Minnesota in 2010. She became a boarded specialist for birds in 2014 through the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners and has worked exclusively with birds and other exotics in Connecticut, California, and, currently, Arizona. She volunteers her time with wildlife groups to help those animals without human caretakers. Dr. Lamb has written several scientific articles and spoken about avian and exotic medicine at various bird and exotic pet clubs and at both local and national veterinary conferences.

A self-proclaimed “bird-nut,” Dr. Lamb grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada, with various companion animals of her own. From an early age she knew she wanted to work with all types of animals, providing them with great medical care and individualized attention. She always had a strong pull toward working with those species who were less conventional, but it was her hand-tame zebra finch, Leonardo Da Finci, who opened up her heart and mind to the amazing companionship that a tiny life can provide for a human. It was because of him that she became encouraged to devote her attention to seeing that birds and other exotics were receiving the best care and a happy, loving life that they deserved.
