Tips When Choosing a Veterinary Practice

It’s a big deal choosing a vet. We trust them to provide the best possible care in times when we’re stressed and our pets are sick!

I’m sure all the vets I listed above are great, and I did my best to vet that they specialize in avian/birds. However, there are some things you can do to reassure yourself you’re putting your chickens in safe hands:

Check qualifications – All practicing vets should have a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree. You should see those letters next to their name on the website.

I also like to see they are members of the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (ABVP). This means they specialize in a recognized veterinary specialty and are evaluated by the American Board of Veterinary Specialties (ABVS).

Experience with chickens – It’s estimated that around 2-4% of U.S. households raise backyard chickens. This is obviously a lot more popular in certain areas than others.

This means many vet practices probably never see sick chickens. This is why I did my best to verify that all the evet practices I listed above have at least one avian vet listed at the practice.

Look for recommendations – I always ask around for recommendations when considering using any form of service for the first time.

Maybe you don’t have friends with chickens, but if they can recommend an animal hospital based on their good experience, it’s worth taking note.

Check reviews – Online reviews are always a little tumultuous, but it’s a good idea to take a quick look for any concerns other people have. Or, read through all the praise that’s been left!

What Should You Do With a Sick Chicken?

If you think one or more of your chickens are sick, the first thing you should do is pull them from your flock and isolate them.

Chickens will often peck at, bully, and injure flockmates they think are sick or weak. So it’s important to remove them so they can recover in peace.

If your chicken is showing signs of being unwell, such as; pale comb or wattle, being lethargic, not eating or drinking, etc, the first thing should be a call to a vet for advice.

They may recommend some antibiotics to start with. They may also recommend you bring them in, which is at least a good way to start the conversation.

The problem with health issues is that it’s so hard to tell what’s wrong unless it’s something fairly obvious like scaly leg that you can see.

Did You Find an Avian Vet Near You?

Whether you have a chicken, parrot, budgie, or any other type of bird in need of treatment now or not, I hope this post helped you find an avian vet near you.

Honestly, I hope you never need to call them. Health issues with chickens are few and far between, at least in my experience, so we can only hope!
