If you have a sick budgie you will want someone you trust to care for it. Most vets have amazing skills but may not have much experience with birds. Many spend most of their time treating cats and dogs, or horses and cattle. They may be experts in these animals, but these are all mammals. They have as many similarities as differences, so a vet can treat one species or another with confidence. Birds, however, are very different from mammals and experience treating them is important if you are trusting them with your budgie. An avian vet would be your best bet, they are usually working with many different types of bird and will probably be very experienced with parakeets and budgies.
It is not always possible to find an avian vet nearby though, so a good vet who has some experience with birds would be the next best thing.
I would like to start a list of excellent vets so we can help each other find a vet we can trust. Click on the 'Recommended Avian Vets' link below to see who is recommended.
Let compile a list of great vets that treat budgies!
I am sure some of you have spent hours trying to find a vet that you trust to treat your babies, so share who is good so others can save some time and maybe even their bird!
Also, we can support the good ones by encouraging others to use them.
