Dr Frank Verstappen


EBVS® European Veterinary Specialist in Avian Medicine and Surgery

My passion lies in avian and exotic animal medicine.
Graduated in 1995 (Utrecht, NL) and followed an internship in companion animal medicine and a residency with Dr. Lumeij and Dr. Westerhof in Avian Medicine and Surgery (ECAMS) at the Department of Clinical Sciences of Companion Animals at Utrecht University.
From 2003 onwards involved in both clinical work in my avian and exotic animal hospital and in zoos (Artis Royal zoo in Amsterdam and veterinary advisor in multiple smaller zoos) and private collections in The Netherlands and abroad. Advising authorities on avian and exotic animal matters also became part of the weekly workload.
