Anesthesia and Surgery of Birds

All of our Bird Vet Melbourne staff are well trained and experienced in the unique challenges that anesthesia and surgery of birds involves. The avian vets anaesthetic protocols are specially adapted to birds and use medications and equipment suitable for the unique respiratory systems of birds.

Our bird hospital is equipped with an array of instruments and equipment that are needed in undertaking fine work on tiny, and not so tiny, avian patients. To reduce risk of blood loss we routinely use micro-surgical techniques, fluid therapy and a radio-surgical unit. To minimise heat loss from the patient, our surgical theatre and hospital wards are heated.
