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.

Canary lost his whistle because of sore preen gland Many species of birds have a preen gland, near their tail, it produces an oily solution, the birds dip their beak in this oil and preen it around their feathers - this helps to water proof themselves - however, they sometimes run into trouble when the preen gland "Blocks up" There can be multiple causes of impacted preen glands, including genetic faults - Vitamin A deficiency can also play a part
