Services: Birds

Avian medicine encompasses everything from a canary in a cage to flocks of free range chickens. Our feathered friends benefit from veterinary care as well.

Birds require a variety of services to stay healthy and happy.  Nutrition is a critical part of maintaining the health of any animal and birds are no exception.  Proper feeding varies widely between different species of birds.  For cage bird species we carry the Zupreem line of bird foods.  Zupreem is the industry leader in formulating balanced diets for exotic species of animals and birds.  

Back yard poultry is becoming very popular.  Helping owners understand what is involved in maintaining flock health is a big part of avian medicine.  Maximizing egg production while keeping all the individuals of the flock healthy isn't something that happens on it's own. 

We offer a variety of services for pet and cage birds as well.  Nail trims, beak trims and wing trims can all be part of the regular care of cage birds.  Evaluation of diet and habitat is also part of cage bird health.

The services we offer for our avian patients include:

  • Radiology
  • Laboratory testing and evaluation
  • DNA sex determination
  • Soft tissue and orthopedic surgery
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Flock health
  • Microchipping
