Vet Care for Fairfield County Birds
Your pet bird brings a unique personality and a flurry of colorful feathers to your home. You already know your feathered friend makes an excellent companion, but were you aware that they need routine wellness care and annual checkups?
At Poster Animal Hospital, we believe preventive healthcare goes a long way to giving your pet bird a long, happy life. That's why we recommend coming in for an initial physical exam by our veterinarian, who is board-certified in avian practice.
Similar to cats and dogs, small mammals should also see a vet for a physical exam once or twice a year, so they can look and feel their best.
What is the avian species?
The avian species involves any and all things in relation to birds. These small exotic mammals have become popular pets for people seeking intelligent, affectionate companions with personality to spare.
Many birds are prey species in the wild and may hide signs of illness as a defence mechanism against predators, making consistent, qualified preventive veterinary care is critical to their health and well-being.
What can I expect at an avian veterinary appointment?
When you bring your avian friend in for an appointment, the vet will complete a thorough routine exam to assess general health of your pet.
We'll recommend appropriate preventive care, perform any required tests, and answer any questions you may have about at-home care.
