Bird Services

The pet bird population has been growing steadily over the past 30 years. Birds need routine check-ups as much as dogs and cats as they hide illness even more. We are equipped to handle a wide variety of medical conditions, including emergencies for avian pets. Because we can perform many diagnostic procedures in-house, we can often give you immediate answers and start treating your pet faster. In some cases, your pet may require hospitalization and further diagnostic tests. Please take a look at the more detailed descriptions of medical services we offer, or call us to discuss your pet’s needs.

What kind of birds do you service?

We have been treating birds for over 30 years at Briarwood. The focus has been on parrots, canaries, finches, budgies and pigeons.

What type of grooming do birds require?

Birds in captivity need to have their nails trimmed and depending on the housing, their flight feathers trimmed. Contrary to popular belief, unless there is a structural problem, beaks rarely require trimming.

What type of services do you provide birds?

Budgies, cockatiels, parrots, and songbirds tend to live longer, healthier lives when they receive regular veterinary care. We can provide nutritional counselling, health assessments, grooming assistance, sexing, faecal parasite testing
