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 It is always dangerous having pet parrots free in the house , especially during summer when ceiling fans are operating- accidents do happen! Little Aster, an Indian Ringneck, had her wing amputated when she flew into a fan. Fortunately, she didn’t die from shock or blood loss and her owners got her straight to the vet for treatment.

Photos from Currumbin Valley Birds, Reptiles & Exotics Vet's post Anu, the lace monitor, was presented to Dr. Peter after an unfortunate misadventure. She grabbed hold of the broom when her owner was sweeping and ended up with some hair and dust balls forming a circular loop around the tongue and trailing down her throat. Under a general anaesthetic, the debris - forming a tourniquet around the tongue, was removed.

Photos from Currumbin Valley Birds, Reptiles & Exotics Vet's post Bird’s beaks and claws grow like our fingernails. Normal, healthy birds keep their beaks and claws trim through their everyday activities (climbing, chewing, foraging and feeding within their environment). Healthy birds don’t need their beaks trimmed. Underlying problems cause beaks to overgrow (trauma, disease, dietary deficiencies or genetic problems) The abnormal beak growth of BFA, the cockatiel, is caused by obesity and vitamin deficiency resulting in fatty liver syndrome. Rather than just trimming his overgrown beak, we also have to improve his diet and treat his damaged liver.

Photos from Currumbin Valley Birds, Reptiles & Exotics Vet's post Many birds are presented to our practice with too short, “hacked off”wing trims which are a common cause of trauma in pet birds. They crash land on wood or tiled floors and split the skin over the breast bone. When new, delicate, blood feathers grow, they are unprotected by older, stiffer feathers and they get knocked, broken and bleed. It is common practice in avian Vet surgeries to do feather extensions or imping on bird’s wings that are cut too short and this corrects problems caused by inappropriate wing trims. The following photos show Dr. Peter doing imping on Scooby, a young Indian ringneck.
