Bird Care

Birds make for an entertaining but unique pet. With a life span of 10-25 years on average, they can become affectionate life long members of your family. Unlike dogs and cats, birds have not been breed for domestication over hundreds of years so they still have their natural instincts hard wired in their behaviour. With a huge variety of birds avaliable in Australia, all of different colours and sizes, it is important that you choose the right bird for you and your family. 

Unfortunately, many people take on birds as pets with little knowledge of adequate diet, housing and general care including environmental enrichment. With a better understanding of these basic principles, your bird could live a happy, healthy life to its full potential.

Dr Anton Ghaly has a special interest in these feathered friends and can help you maximize your birds full potential. Here at Green Point Veterinary Hospital, we are fully equipped to help you with;

  • General health checks
  • Basic pre and post purchase examinations
  • Bird microchipping
  • Medical and surgical procedures
  • Proper and safe wing clipping
  • Tests for Avian Chlamydia (Psittacosis)
  • Surgical and DNA sexing
  • DNA testing for Psittacine Beak and Feather Disease (PBFD)

For any bird health problems from buggies to macaws or your backyard chicken, come in and see Dr Anton Ghaly.
