We see exotic birds!
Birds need veterinary care too! These unique pets often have specific requirements for husbandry and nutrition, which if not provided correctly could lead to illness and disease. In addition, our pet birds tend to mask and hide signs of illness better than dogs or cats, which means they’re often more sick when their owners notice they have a problem. It is critical to take your exotic pet to a veterinarian that has the experience, the resources and knowledge beyond dog and cat medicine to treat these pets.
Specialized Avian Treatment
Our veterinarians have an extensive knowledge base and background when it comes to the care and treatment of birds. We also have veterinarians who are members of:
Memberships like this keep our veterinarians on the cutting edge of new procedures and treatments for our bird patients.
Arbor View has a dedicated exotic patient hospital ward and specialized equipment needed to appropriately work with these patients. Should your pet require hospitalization or surgery we have specific enclosures to provide supplemental heat, humidity, and oxygen, we can keep prey and predator species separate, and we also isolate our exotic species away from our dog and cat patients, which is important to reduce stress on an already stressed patient. Arbor View also has many medications, vitamins and food supplements specifically used in exotic pets available at our clinic to ensure we have what your pet needs when they become ill.
How to prepare for your appointment:
1. Make sure you bring your bird in an easily transportable container, carrier, or crate to protect them from injury or escape. If you’re unsure of the best way to bring your pet to our hospital safely, please call or text us, and we would be happy to help you!
2. Make sure you fill out our husbandry questionnaire prior to your appointment. This questionnaire is typically texted to the primary number we have on file prior to your visit. This completed form will help your veterinarian review your pet’s husbandry prior to their appointment and possibly determine an underlying cause for your pet’s medical condition based on their home care and environment.
