Avian Care

Our experienced team of veterinarians specializes in providing top-notch medical services exclusively for birds. Just like cats, dogs, and other traditional pets, birds require regular veterinary care to ensure they stay happy, healthy, and continue to bring joy to your life.

Birds are unique creatures with specific needs and sensitivities. That’s why having a specialized avian veterinarian is crucial for the well-being of your feathered friends. Our avian veterinary care includes:

Comprehensive Wellness Examinations: Regular wellness check-ups are essential to assess your bird’s overall health, detect early signs of illness, and address any concerns you may have. Birds are skilled at hiding signs of illness, making routine examinations a vital part of their care.

Beak and Wing Care: Birds require special attention to their beaks and wings. Our avian veterinarians can perform wing trims to prevent your bird from flying away while ensuring their safety. Beak trims are also available to maintain proper beak length and making feeding easier for your bird.

Nutritional Guidance: Each bird species has unique nutritional requirements. We work closely with you to determine the most appropriate diet for your feathered friend, helping them maintain a healthy weight and thrive.

Diagnostic Testing: Our state-of-the-art facilities allow us to perform essential diagnostic tests, such as blood testing, to gain a deeper understanding of your bird’s health. These tests can reveal nutritional
imbalances or detect diseases in their early stages.

Radiology Services: In case of injury or illness, we offer X-ray services to provide a closer look at the affected area. This allows us to make accurate diagnoses and develop tailored treatment plans.

Surgical Procedures: Should your bird require surgical intervention, our avian veterinarians have the expertise and specialized equipment to perform procedures, including mass removals, with precision and care.

The Importance of Avian Veterinary Care

Birds, like many exotic animals, are prey species and excel at concealing pain or illness. This instinctual behavior can make it challenging to detect issues until they become severe. Regular veterinary check-ups are crucial for:

  • Early Disease Detection: Routine check-ups help us spot subtle signs of illness and initiate treatment promptly, improving your bird’s chances of recovery.
  • Injury Prevention: Common injuries or illnesses related to your bird’s environment, care, or contagious diseases can be mitigated with regular examinations.
