Avian Vet Needed In Case!

Recommended Posts

Once I took my budgie to a vet to have its ring removed. When we were filling out forms for surgery she asked us what species it was and was it a cockatiel? She didn't even know if it was a budgie! and she couldn't tell what sex my bird was! Can you understand why I need to know if there are any avian vets in my area? Those vets near me don't know a thing about birds and my bird was frantic when she came out!

There are three bird-specific clinics with registered bird vets in Victoria. They are:

 

Burwood Bird and Animal Hospital

Dr Patricia MacWhirter and Dr Phil Sacks

Springvale South VIC 3172

Phone 03 9546 5022

The following places will also see birds, they're not specialists but know more about birds than regular dog-and-cat vets:

Melbourne School of Veterinary Science

Dr Tina Knight

Werribee 3030

03 9741 3500

 

Templestowe Veterinary Clinic

288 Manningham Road,

They're all I can think of.

This must be a guessing game,by the look of it,you don't live in the Melbourne area.

Is there any more clues say like,Northern Vic,Gippsland,Central,South West & the Mallee. :D

Age has little to do with simply saying what suburb you live in so members can help point you to a local vet :)

 

 

so what suburb are you in ?
