Those who share their lives with pet birds know that these charming animals make great companions. Not only are many birds covered with beautiful colours, but their songs make a home come alive. Their ‘human-like’ voices and antics can also amuse people for hours. In addition, many pet birds can live for over 50 years, providing decades of joy to those who choose these wonderful pets.
Like other kinds of pets, birds have unique needs. Many bird owners may need help understanding how to provide their birds with proper nutrition, training, hygiene, and grooming and how to facilitate social interactions with other pets and family members. Birds can develop many of the same medical conditions that dogs and cats develop, as well as a variety of illnesses unique to birds. However, birds are well known for being able to hide signs of illness, which adds to the challenge of diagnosing their medical problems.
Regular wellness visits are an important way to help ensure the overall health and longevity of pet birds. Wellness visits offer you an opportunity to ask us any questions about your bird and give us a chance to examine your bird for signs of health issues. We may also recommend wellness screening tests to help us assess your bird’s health.
Pet birds bring a special type of joy to a home, and we consider it our duty to provide quality medical care for them. The services that our avian veterinarians provide are designed to address the full range of your bird’s needs. Our team is dedicated to helping birds live longer, healthier lives, so call us today to schedule an appointment for your pet bird!
We love Halloween! From the cool and creative costumes, trick-or-treating, parties, and (let's be honest) the candy, Halloween can be a fun time for everyone. But, there are many hazards that our pets face during these fall festivities.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we can continue providing our full range of services, under certain restrictions. As our province enters the next phase of the reopening plan, we have some updates to share with you about our safety measures.
We are continuing to see all cases by appointment only including pets in need of: vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, parasite prevention, and more.
Beginning July 20, 2020, clients are able to come into the hospital with their pets with the following restrictions:
SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us.
Face coverings must be worn to enter the hospital.
Use hand sanitizer upon entry.
Washrooms will be closed to the public until further notice.
If you wish to remain in your car during the appointment, when you call to inform us of your arrival, we will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
