Birds and Poultry:

Feathered creatures of all shapes and sizes are welcome at Seers Croft. Canaries, budgerigars, parrots, birds of prey, waterfowl, cranes... have all been treated by our exotic vets. Problems encountered are as varied as the species we see.

Are very intelligent, inquisitive birds. They need plenty of distractions and toys that can be safely destroyed. Flying free can lead to ingestion of foreign bodies and exposure to heavy metals (zinc and lead). It is very important for them to have a well balanced diet and most species require UVB light to absorb calcium. Even when husbandry and diet is perfect, veterinary attention might be needed and our vets are always here to help.

Birds of Prey
Both working and birds of prey kept for recreational reasons are brought in to Seers Croft. Depending on the presentation, faecal samples, blood sampling, X-rays, endoscopy and surgery might be needed, all of which we perform on site.

We can help with preventative medicine and treatment from backyard flocks, show birds to commercial units. We are happy to discuss flock health programmes, carry out faecal parasite tests and post mortem examinations in-house.

Game Birds
Changes in supply of medicines for game birds have made preventative health even more important. We can respond quickly to problems as we can provide some in-house diagnostic lab work and perform post-mortems.
