Sick Amazon Parrot


I have a sick amazon parrot that need to see a vet. Here in the Cayman Islands we do not have an avian vet. The only vets available here are regular vets and a wildlife vet. Who would you suggest.


Answer:

Hi Charmaine,

I’m sorry to hear your bird is sick. I think the wildlife vet would have more experience treating birds. I would try that Vet first.

I did find this clinic through a Google search and they see exotics.

Another suggestion is to contact any pet shops that sell birds or bird breeders and see if they have a Vet they use for birds.

Take care,

Brenda
