Bird Services in Red Deer, Alberta

Birds share a very strong bond with their owners. To help care for your bird our veterinarians will perform a wellness exam and answer any questions you may have about caring for your bird. It is important to feed them a balanced diet and foods that are appropriate for their species. Birds will hide signs of illness until they are often quite sick, it is vital to monitor eating and drinking habits as well as grooming and overall appearance.

What kind of birds do you care for?

We welcome all kinds of birds. We often see small parrots, budgies, cockatiels, lovebirds and amazons. Please contact the staff at Lomsnes Veterinary Hospital if you have any questions about your bird.

What type of grooming do birds require?

Birds require minimal help with grooming, but some human assistance can make them happy and more comfortable. Providing a shallow water bath or misting with water can help them with moulting and general feather/skin conditions. Always ensure the water temperature is appropriate (tepid) and that they are able to dry themselves properly, to prevent them from getting too cold. Beaks and nails should be monitored for signs of overgrowth. Symptoms of overgrowth are your bird having a hard time picking up objects/food and grasping perches. It is common for birds to have their nails and beaks trimmed as they are not as active as their wild counterparts. Please contact the staff at Lomsnes Veterinary if you have any questions regarding the care of your bird.

What type of services do you provide birds?

We provide our feather friends with yearly wellness exams, beak/nail trims and feather trimming. If you would like to make an appointment for your bird, please contact the staff at Lomsnes Veterinary Hospital.
