Award-Winning Veterinary Care from a Board-Certified Exotics Specialist!

Welcome to Belton Animal Clinic & Exotic Care Center where we understand how much you care about your exotic pet. Whether your pet is an iguana named Izzy, a hedgehog named Hazel or a Savannah monitor named Yoda, we strive to keep him or her healthy and comfortable with an emphasis on preventative medicine in order to give you peace of mind.

Today, exotic pets have become much less “exotic” as more and more people purchase and adopt them. These pets have become family members and best friends, offering companionship and unconditional love. We provide exotic pet owners with more options, better resources, and educational involvement to develop a lifetime health care plan for their special companion. Dr. Teresa Bradley Bays is currently one of only sixteen people in the United States and twenty one people worldwide to be certified in Exotic Companion Mammals. Her dedication, knowledge and compassion ensures that Belton Animal Clinic staff understands and utilizes the latest technological advances and implements the foremost exotics medical practices.

Our state-of-the-art facility is equipped with most modern amenities to assist our staff in the care of your exotics, including:

  • Expanded Exotics Ward
  • Surgery Suite
  • Dental and Treatment Center
  • Isolation Ward
  • Radiology Room
  • Ultrasound Room
  • Surgical Recovery Ward
  • Acupuncture and Rehabilitation Room


Belton Animal Clinic and Exotic Care Center has a long history of quality medicine and surgery. Established at its old location on Main Street in the late 1950s, it is currently owned by Dr. Teresa Bradley Bays. In October of 2005 we relocated 2 miles north into a new and expanded facility at 1308 N. Scott Ave, Belton, MO on a two acre tree-lined property.
