Bird Care: Veterinarians
General Information  •   Veterinarians  •   Health and Safety

The following list of clinics have vets which have indicated an interest or a specialty in avian care. This is not a complete list but is meant to help you find an avian vet. Ask your vet if they are experienced in bird care. If they are not, find one who is.

Birds should have an annual vet check-up and blood work done to provide early detection of avian disease. Birds will hide illness and can be sick with no apparent signs. Also, birds can be carriers of very contagious avian diseases. If you have other birds at home, this could be a problem. Sometimes stress to a bird will allow a disease to take hold and make the bird ill.

If your birds are vet checked annually it allows people to more readily accept your bird into their homes in the event you have to relocate your birds (emergencies, house painting, travel, and so on).
