For pet owners living with exotic pets, our team at Apollo Animal Hospital in Surrey, BC, offers veterinary services to exotic animals. One of the exotic species we serve is birds. Our British Columbia team is dedicated to providing quality care and service to different pets, including avian species. Our “veterinarian near me” is here to help.
It is important to have your bird's annual visits as well as any visits needed throughout the year by a veterinarian with the credentials to take care of your bird's medical needs. Unfortunately, specialized veterinary medicine is not available at all pet hospitals. The good news is that you can get the care your birds need with our veterinarian on our veterinary team.
Wellness Visits for Birds in British Columbia
During your visit to our hospital, the examination will check your bird's overall health status. This includes checking his body for any signs of trauma, wounds, or other abnormal signs. Our veterinarian, with the help of our team of assistants, might check the bird's weight against his height to ensure there is a healthy balance. Your bird's mobility and general appearance might also be recorded.
If necessary, our veterinary services may include taking samples to be evaluated at the lab to determine any health conditions. This may include blood testing.
During the visit, our veterinarian might have questions about your bird's environment, attitude, eating habits, and if there have been any behavioral changes. This information is recorded, which we can refer to, and update, during future visits.
Information About Bird Care
There are a few things to consider when you become an avian pet owner. Consider the following:
● Birds might not display symptoms when they aren't feeling well. This can be detrimental to their health and why annual examinations are recommended, as well as a checkup if a change in their look or behavior is observed.
● If you are planning to bring a new bird into your home, it may be a good idea to have it checked for transmittable sicknesses.
● For those new to bird owning, some birds can have long lifespans.
