Disease Diagnosis

Our on-site laboratory and post mortem room facilitate the detailed examination of birds and samples enabling us to provide results quickly, allowing prompt treatment and advice.

Post mortem examinations
  • Usually take between 15 and 30 minutes - If you wish to wait for results then please phone ahead to ensure a vet is free
  • Alternatively, birds can be left at any time during office hours
  • Samples can be left outside normal hours by prior arrangement with the office
  • Samples may also be submitted by post/ courier - please ensure that packages are correctly wrapped to prevent leakages and have the correct postage paid. All samples should be accompanied with contact details of the owner and a brief history of the birds.

Please select birds typical of the flock as a whole for PM submission. By selecting the most appropriate sample in any situation we are able to obtain the greatest amount of information - do contact the practice if you want any advice.

Dispensing of Medicines

Prescription only medicines (antibiotics and anti-coccidials) and veterinary advice can only be supplied to birds under our care and where a clinical diagnosis has been made.

To allow this:

  • You must be a client of the practice
  • We need to have seen your birds or tested your samples
  • We must have sufficient knowledge of the birds in question

Antibiotics should only ever be used for treating bacterial diseases and should never be used routinely or for non-specific conditions.
