Grr. I really hate this list because it's easily reached by searching, and lots of sites link and use information from it, but it's incredibly out of date!

 

1. As AV said, Dr Phil Sacks is a qualified bird vet, he works with Dr Pat MacWhirter at Highbury Vet Clinic, which is now called Burwood Vet Hospital.

2. Dr Colin Walker runs a bird-only clinic in Wantirna Sth, Knox Bird Clinic.

3. Dr Karl Harrigan has retired. There is no qualified bird vet at Melbourne Uni, Werribee (they will still take them, one of our vets is very keen on birds and exotics).

4. Dr Dave Madill has also retired. Dr Matthew Gosbell is now the bird vet at Springvale.

5. Dr Anne Fowler has moved to NSW, so she no longer works at Torquay.

 

Not picking on you, just wanting to correct some information on that site.

Haha, I was going to say something like "hint hint, soon there will be another one to add to that list". :D

I won't be what is colloquially called a "fully qualified" bird vet for another five or so years, but in the meantime it is my special interest so I am very happy for everyone to bring them to me :) (Any graduate with a vet degree can be very good at their special interest without having, or needing, another bunch of letters on the end of their name. They are still allowed to call themselves a bird or horse or cow vet, they choose to only see those types of animals and therefore get very experienced at it. It doesn't mean they are restricted from doing certain things, but they had be better sure they know what they are doing before they try it! So there are several more qualifications you can add to your basic degree to certify you have passed certain exams. In fact there aren't very many true bird "specialists" in Australia - only one in Victoria).

Anyway, I hope to appearing on those lists in the next couple of years :D

I knew there was one here somewhere but did a search but it didn't work because VET is only 3 letters, then I tried avian and got heaps of results and couldn't find the right one :hug: I was after the one in West Brunswick... Thats the closest...
