Adolf Maas, D.V.M., with a wallaby
For nearly 20 years, I’ve been treating exotic animals throughout the United States. After receiving important foundations for this career at SPU, I attended the University of Washington and University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine for my graduate and veterinary medical schooling.
Since then, I have worked and received advanced training at the Pittsburgh Zoo, Toronto Zoo, Louisville Zoo, and the Wildlife Care Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. In addition to consulting for the Indianapolis Zoo and the Cincinnati Zoo, I was a clinician at the Avian and Exotic Animal Clinic in Indianapolis, Indiana, and at the Indianapolis Veterinary Referral Center, which is one of the highest ranked referral and specialty facilities in the Midwest.
Before moving back to the Pacific Northwest, I was the owner of Exotic and Companion Animal Veterinary Services, a mobile exotics-only practice in Indiana, providing in-home and on-site care to owners of all exotic animals -- including snakes, venomous lizards, tigers, deer, elk, wolves, mountain lions, bears, pet birds, skunks, and fish.
In addition to staying current on advancements in avian and exotic animal medicine, I have co-authored research articles ranging from reproduction in Sumatran rhinoceri and ophthalmic surgery in snakes to cellular growth-factor regulation and identification of novel fungal infections in exotic species.
I’m now the owner of the Avian and Exotic Animal Hospital in Bothell, Washington, the largest, most advanced private bird, exotic, and zoo animal hospital on the West Coast.
