Avian Medicine and Surgery

Did you know budgies, parrots and songbirds require regular veterinary attention too?! We advise yearly visits to the vet for your feathery friends. During their yearly check up we will examine your bird’s beak, nails and feathers to determine if they require any specialized attention. Some birds require more frequent examinations. Note: a bird that doesn’t groom itself correctly and exhibits a ruffled, un-kept look associated with its feathers is usually a sick bird and should be examined as soon as possible by a veterinarian.
