Avian Vets in Canada!

Whether you are a new bird owner, moving to a new neighborhood, or you’re simply looking for a new avian veterinarian, here are some tips to help you find an avian veterinarian you can trust.

Birds, like us, need to have annual (or more frequent) wellness visits with a veterinarian. These visits are important to monitor health, as well as to share new information to improve both the physical and social wellbeing of our feathered family members. 

What you should look for in an Avian Veterinarian

After locating an avian veterinarian near you, call the veterinary office, and ask to set up an appointment to meet the veterinarian and visit the office. Veterinarians welcome visits and pre-purchase
consultations. This will give you the opportunity to ask questions about the hospital such as:

• Do all the veterinarians at the facility treat birds?

• Are the technicians trained in handling and treating birds?

• How are emergencies handled if the office is closed?

• Does the facility have a separate area for hospitalized birds?

• Does the veterinarian care for pet birds regularly?

What Does Board Certified Mean? 

Some veterinarians have elected to pursue their studies and practice of avian medicine to a more advanced level and have become board-certified specialists in avian medicine. Board certified veterinarians must recertify regularly. 

While board certification ensures that your veterinarian has had advanced specialized training in avian medicine and surgery, there are many caring, well-trained qualified veterinarians who regularly work with birds but are not board-certified and are able to provide excellent bird care.
