Avian patients are just as susceptible as dogs and cats to developing problems.  Their thin, light skeleton makes them highly prone to broken bones and their inquisitive nature prone to toxicities and accidents.

As most birds are prey species they are very good at hiding signs of disease, until it is very advanced.  Some diseases such as Psitticosis can also affect humans, so it is important for your own health to get them checked out.   Here at the clinic we can perform basic maintenance procedures such as wing, nail and beak trimming, and our blood analysers can run samples from birds.  If your feathered friend seems a little off, our vets are more than happy to examine them and offer general advice on husbandry as well as perform various tests to identify the problem.
