As a bird lover, you can attest that owning such intelligent, sensitive, colorful and beautiful animals has the greatest sense of joy and pride. Although the rewards of owning birds are numerous, the journey towards responsible bird ownership is not easy. Birds need a great deal of research, commitment, and they also deserve the best health care, which you can only find at North Central Animal Hospital in Phoenix, AZ. Our wellness exams can benefit your bird in the following ways.
At our practice, we will conduct a comprehensive physical exam as a diagnostic tool to identify any issues your bird might be suffering from. During a physical bird wellness exam, our veterinarians will determine if your bird has any abnormalities in his or her organs. The exam will evaluate the air sacs, lungs, heart, nose, ears, eyes, vent, skin, and feathers. We will also care for the claws and monitor weight. A physical exam will help to identify any signs that can indicate a severe issue.
During the early stages of a disease, most birds will not demonstrate any signs or symptoms. When you bring your bird to our animal hospital, we will conduct laboratory testing to include blood and fecal analysis. If you manage to identify an illness, we can undertake early interventions that will consist of recommendations on environmental adjustments, dietary alterations, and offering appropriate medication. The test can also provide a valuable guideline for future tests in case your bird becomes sick. Therefore, our avian vet can collect the samples without struggling in your next wellness visit.
Our veterinarians are experienced in common bird issues, including behavioral problems such as misdirected reproductive behavior, disruptive vocalization, and feather destructive behavior. Such conditions might be debilitating, but by consulting with our practice, we can help in recommending strategies that can minimize unwanted behaviors.
A Relationship with an Expert
When you regularly bring your bird to our animal hospital for a wellness exam, our veterinarians will know their behavioral quirks, environment, diet, and medical history. Knowing such critical information assists our vets in directing diagnostic tests and determining the right treatment options. So, if your bird gets sick, you will be assured that our avian vet will make appropriate and effective decisions that will enhance your bird's health and well-being.
