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.

While under a general anaesthetic she also had a microchip implanted. Microchips are the safest way to identify birds if they are lost. Mini chips are available for birds and exotic animals. In birds the chip is implanted in the breast muscle under a general anaesthetic

Photos from Currumbin Valley Birds, Reptiles & Exotics Vet's post We often encounter bird patients with wings that have been cut far too short. A wing trim is not to stop birds from flying away. If wings are cut so short that a bird cannot fly they have all sorts of problems when new feathers grow. They also “crash land” and damage their breast muscles and keel bone. Little Echo’s wings were cut too short and Dr Peter gave her some feather extensions to solve the problem.

Photos from Currumbin Valley Birds, Reptiles & Exotics Vet's post A timely warning about Summertime, pet birds and ceiling fans. Gizmo is a very lucky little sun conure. She was startled into flying while the ceiling fan was switched on. She hit the fan and her wing was amputated- fortunately she did not die from shock or blood loss - her quick thinking owners got her to our hospital in time and Dr. Peter was able to save her. When a pet bird is out of the cage, monitor them closely and switch off ceiling fans. Check out our website www.currumbinvet services.com.au and read our article “Dangers of the house”
P.S. These photos were taken one week after the accident - which is why she is looking brighter. She initially spent several days in intensive care and it was "touch and go" for a while

Photos from Currumbin Valley Birds, Reptiles & Exotics Vet's post Little “Sunny”, the cockatiel, got into trouble by chewing on some rope toys in his cage - this caused a “fur ball”to develop in his crop. He had to undergo surgery to remove the life-threatening fibre impaction. As he is being prepped for surgery, the impaction is clearly visible. Dr. Peter made an incision through the skin and the crop wall and removed the impaction - it was quite large. However, Sunny recovered uneventfully
