Care for Avian Patients

Wellness ServicesAvian Care

Sometimes the hardest part about choosing an avian veterinarian is simply finding one. Finding an avian veterinarian and establishing a good relationship with him or her are perhaps two of the most beneficial things you can do for your pet bird.

A bird's anatomy and physiology are quite different from other pets. They require specialized care administered by a qualified veterinarian. We have full diagnostic and treatment capacities for our feathered friends. We're comfortable and confident in handling your pet bird.

Birds' instincts are also different from other pets. Birds mask symptoms to avoid showing signs of weakness to predators. Early detection of diseases and problems are difficult to see and are important to recognize. At Animal & Bird Hospital of Del Mar, we recommend new bird and annual health examinations. These visits give us the opportunity to examine your bird fully, undertake any minor procedures (nail, beak and wing trimming) and discuss important aspects of husbandry, nutrition, behavior and disease prevention. It also allows us to familiarize ourselves with each individual bird and their owners.

Different types of birds react differently to certain medical procedures. We're knowledgeable about specific treatments that work for your particular species of bird.

If you are a new bird owner, it is likely that you have many questions about what to look out for in an avian veterinarian. We are capable of providing clear answers to all your questions.
