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.
Dr. Bradley Bays has been a veterinarian at Belton Animal Clinic & Exotic Care Center since 1993 and has been an owner in the practice since 1997. In addition to caring for the dogs and cats of Belton, she is an internationally-acclaimed author and lecturer on exotic pet species and recently earned Board Certification as a specialist in Exotic Companion Mammals, a designation held by less than 20 veterinarians worldwide. Her interests in veterinary medicine are varied, but she loves surgery and takes great pride in performing difficult and life-changing surgeries on dogs, cats, and exotic animals. As a Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist, she has helped many dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets, birds and a few lizards to live a better and more comfortable life. Additionally, she is also studying Chinese Herbal Therapy in order to provide additional pain management and supportive care to the clinic's patients.
Dr. Bradley Bays is the author of many articles, several book chapters and co-editor and co-author of Exotic Pet Behavior: Birds, Reptiles, and Small Mammals. She is past president of the Association of Reptilian and Amphibian Veterinarians and of the Missouri Academy of Veterinary Practitioners. She is currently a member of the following organizations:

An avid supporter of children and animals, Dr. Bradley Bays is co-leader of the KC-C.A.N. (Caring for All Network), a group that works to disseminate information about the link between animal abuse and domestic violence. Away from the clinic, she loves camping, reading, writing and spending time with her family as well as their two pets, Bonnie and Flash, both shelter rescues.
