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 Avian veterinarians commonly have to operate on pet parrots that have ingested fibre from chewing on inappropriate toys, happy huts, cage accessories, curtains, carpet, upholstery etc. Parrots are “hard-wired” to chew. When foraging for food in the wild, they chew nuts, seed pods, seeding grasses etc. They also chew to keep their beak in top condition. In captivity, they need appropriate, safe and healthy materials to chew on. Unfortunately, many of the commercially produced toys are dangerous and unsuitable for pet parrots. Check out our website www.currumbinvetservices.com.au and read our article “Fibre impactions and Pet Birds”.
Little Ollie, a cockatiel, was presented with a fibre impaction in her crop caused by chewing on a rope toy. The impaction was surgically removed.
Photos from Currumbin Valley Birds, Reptiles & Exotics Vet's post We see many pet birds with inappropriate wing trims. Typically the wings have been “hacked off”, too short to prevent their pet from flying away. If birds’ wings are cut so short that they cannot fly , they suffer physical damage from “crash landing “ and new, growing blood feathers are also damaged because they are unprotected by longer, stiffer feathers. Check out our website www.currumbinvetservices.com.au and read our articles “Pet Parrots and Wing trimming” and “Problems Caused by Inappropriate wing trims”. This young Quaker parrot needed feather extensions to correct a “hacked off” wing trim. The extensions enable her to fly and to prevent physical damage from “crash landings”.

Photos from Currumbin Valley Birds, Reptiles & Exotics Vet's post Three quarters of physical health problems in pet birds are caused by inadequate diet. Mostly diets that are too high in fats and too low in essential vitamins and minerals. Vitamin A deficiency can cause a thickening and flaking of the tissues throughput the body. In the case of Coco, the cockatiel, the nostril tissue became thickened and flakey and formed “onion-ring” layers to create a rhinolith (nasal plug of caseous tissue). Dr. Peter removed the rhinolith

Check out our website wwwcurrumbinvetservices.com.au and read our articles “Pet Parrots and Wing Clipping “ and “Problems Caused by Inappropriate Wing Clipping “ The safest way to take a bird outside is to train him/her to accept a bird harness. Nurse Kym and Nurse Alex (a visiting vet nurse from Denmark) take some of our boarding residents for an afternoon, enrichment walk.
