Our Avian Veterinary Services
We at Care Animal Hospital offer the following services for your bird.
Physical Examinations and Check-Ups
These check-ups comprehend a thorough examination of your pets. This is done to evaluate their physical wellness and overall health. Our veterinarian will examine their beak, feathers, eyes, and feet. This way, they will ensure your friend is not sick.
If they are sick, our veterinarians will either prescribe medicine to them or suggest veterinary care.
This service includes nail trimming, wing clipping, and beak trimming. This is done to maintain the bird’s overall wellness. After all, if their beak, nails, or wings overgrow, they might experience trouble eating, drinking, flying, and grooming. Also, they can even injure their own tongues.
If you feel your chick needs grooming, contact our phone, schedule an appointment, and bring them to our bird clinic.
Immunizations and Vaccinations
This service includes important vaccines such as the Polyomavirus Vaccine. This is a deadly virus that can quickly harm your chick if not treated as soon as possible. All animals should get vaccines to prevent common viral and bacterial infections.
This service includes a range of tests to evaluate the health of your animal bird. One of the most important ones is the Serum Biochemical Profile. This is a blood test that ensures the correct functioning of the liver and kidney. Also, it is usually done in parallel with Microbiological Testing.
This is done to identify any abnormal bacteria or yeast infections that might be present in their bodies. This, along with a complete blood count and chemistry, allows veterinarians to confirm your friend is living a healthy life.
These specialized services test your sick bird for specific conditions such as beak and feather disease, parrot fever (Chlamydiosis), and Polyomavirus. Our specialized tests also comprehend virology and cytology, which are used to identify any virus inside your chick and evaluate the health of its organs.
This is a surgical treatment that allows avian veterinarians to check your pet’s internal organs. It is usually done to diagnose conditions such as egg bindings, tumors, and infections. Also, it can be used as a procedure to remove tumors, repair hernias, and remove bonded eggs.
If your chick needs this service, contact us and schedule an appointment.
This service is a practice that evaluates the well-being of your bird’s urinary system. To do this, the animal must be stimulated to urinate into a sample cup. Then, the urine will go through to a test that detects any abnormalities or infections. In that case, the doctor will prescribe or suggest a procedure.
Digital X-Rays are a non-invasive tool that allows our vets to examine the bones and organs of their chick clients. Very similar to what it offers to a human. Since there are a lot of cats and birds in the outside world, it is very common to spot a chick with broken bones.
This can also be used to detect any unusual or foreign objects in your bird’s digestive tract. A treat or any type of food can become stuck sometimes, or worse, your chick can pick up and eat any debris in your house.
Since this can cause their digestive tract to stop working properly, you must bring them to our bird clinic as soon as possible.
We offer general, local, sedative, and topical anesthetics for any surgical procedures or medical treatments our chick clients need. For this service, our anesthesia team will be in charge of carefully monitoring the bird’s well-being during the procedure.
If your pet chick is in need of surgical intervention, our team of experts will be able to treat several conditions. For instance, the most common ones are tumor removals, fracture repairs, and intestinal obstructions.
If you believe your pet requires this service, bring them to our medical center immediately. We always receive new clients.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Often Does My Chick Need to See the Veterinarian?
As a general rule, you should bring your pet chick to the bird clinic once per year.
Unlike your furry feline and canine friends, birds tend to hide underlying illnesses or diseases until they are far advanced. This will only serve as a hindrance to your doctor in treating your pet or preventing further damage.
To help avoid all this, it’s best to follow advice and simply take your chick for a visit annually. A wellness check-up will also ensure your pet is in good health in all areas.
When Should I Bring My Pet Bird to the Clinic?
Any change in your bird’s behavior, eating habits, or voice should be a sign that your pet may be in need of an examination. Since birds don’t easily display signs of discomfort or disease, once you notice any changes in any of those areas, whether big or small, a trip to the vet should be your top decision.
It’s also important to note that there are some diseases in birds that may be passed on to humans. A complete examination should be scheduled for taking in new pets, as its potential exposure to the wild might mean your chick can bring in unwanted health issues into your home.
How Can I Prepare My Pet Chick for a Clinic Visit?
When taking your chick for a trip to the bird clinic, it’s important to ensure your pet’s comfort by traveling with it in its cage. Add some warm towels surrounding the cage and talk to your chick to console them.
Not only will your pet be comfortable, but the doctor will also be able to check the cage for unnoticeable symptoms of disease. Some illnesses in birds can only be determined with the cage at present, and those include zinc toxicity, nutritional disorders, and territorial behaviors, among others.
