Our team continues to be here for you and your cherished pets. We are OPEN and are now able to provide a wide range of services. To learn more about the changes we have implemented in response to COVID-19 and what to expect during your next visit, click here.
Here at Animal Medical Centre North, we see many different animals including our avian friends. We even have some budgies in the lobby! Our veterinarians and support staff are happy to answer any questions you may have about your feathery companion(s).
We offer services to domesticated birds. Although, if a wild animal is brought in to us, we will take all the necessary steps to get it proper care. If you find a wild bird that is injured or sick, please call your local authorities.
What type of grooming do birds require?
While many birds do not need much help with grooming or moulting, some avians require bathing and nail/beak trims. If the beak gets too long, they may have difficulty picking up and eating food. If the nails grow too long, they may have trouble grasping perches or food. Some birds also need to have their wings clipped to prevent them from flying away. Bathing and general grooming can help them stay looking their best during a moult.
What type of services do you provide to birds?
We offer beak and nail trims, as well as wing clipping as grooming services. We will also examine your birds as part of regular care or if they happen to become sick or injured.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 25, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
