We have a holistic approach towards the treatment of animals in our care.

We look at the whole animal for example its diet, husbandry, environment and not just its presenting symptoms.

The majority of problems are caused by incorrect  diet & husbandry.

At Currumbin Valley Veterinary Surgery we place a great emphasis on the education of our clients to make them more aware of the special needs and requirements of their pets.

Photos from Currumbin Valley Birds, Reptiles & Exotics Vet's post Birds have an instinct to forage for their food also their beaks grow like our fingernails and they need to constantly chew to keep them in shape. In captivity we need to provide our pet parrots with safe and healthy things to chew on. Check out our website www.currumbinvetservices.com.au and read our articles “problems associated with toys and cage accoutrements for pet parrots “ and “wild food for your birds “ When parrots chew on curtains, carpets, upholstery, rope and fibrous toys and perches they end up with fibre impactions and fur balls. Lorikeets and cockatiels are particularly prone to fibre impactions. This is a case involving a rainbow lorikeet who was presented with a distended abdomen and persistent vomiting. An X-ray showed a large mass in the stomach. She underwent abdominal surgery and the impaction was removed. She was very lucky. Often impactions in the stomach are inoperable

Photos from Currumbin Valley Birds, Reptiles & Exotics Vet's post Unlike dogs and cats, pet birds, kept indoors, don’t need regular worming. Faecal checks as part of a regular health check, will show if a bird needs worming or not. However, if a pet bird is diagnosed with worms, it is no good just putting a worming medication in the drinking water and hope that the bird drinks a measured dose. It is much more effective for an avian veterinarian to give the bird a measured dose via a crop tube. If a bird has a severe worm infestation, the worming solution will kill the worms and the dead worms can cause an intestinal blockage. To prevent this, a small amount of paraffin is given by crop tube to lubricate the dead worms and facilitate their passage. The following photos show a large amount of round worms passed by a Budgie and a cockatiel after worming.
