....... i would then find the closest vet and ring him and ask if you have a problem in the future would he be prepared to answer a question over the phone.

I would do what Daz said and then ask if they know of anyone in the area that you may have overlooked that specializes in birds. You may be amazed what you will find :glare:

Do ring around and see what you can find out. I found my vet by chance. One of my boys got sick and I rang the Vet that is well known in our area as THE bird vet and got told that he does not sound that bad how about you bring him in on Monday. This was on a Friday afternoon.

 

I rang the 24 hour clinic in Melbourne and they suggested a few, one of the closes (about a 1/2 hour drive from me) is Springvale Vet Clinic on Springvale Rd. Now they are not a Bird clinic but as there is a large Bird and reptile shop next door to them all the yougn vets get trained by looking after the animals for free. Pet store loves them, vets get training with birds and all the animals are so much better off for it! I rang and they said to bring him down. It turned out that he ate to much celery and was bloated! :blink: But still they where really good. When Queenie got sick they knew what they where talking about and treated him and me really well.

 

I have found that some vets do not see birds as real pets and when you lose one they are all like, Oh well next.

 

So sometimes the local vet may not look like a bird vet but they could be one in hiding!

:glare:

I know the large pet store you are speaking of Angelic Vampyre. If the condition of the animals at that place were any condition to go by the vets would be out of business. Last time I was there, which was only a few weeks ago, it was disgraceful. I would go with Daz's suggestion. Word of mouth is a pretty powerful tool. Same thing with finding a good breeder I guess. If they are shonky in any way it gets around.

Huh I was in there about a year ago and it was really good. maybe it has gone down hill since then. I know the vets use to vet the animals there but maybe they stopped or something. The vet however is still really good. I went there today and have nothing but praise for them.
