Surrey Poultry Vet is an ambulatory service. Home visits are recommended to see birds in their natural environment so that the birds are not stressed and underlying causes can be best identified. Most illnesses are secondary to underlying factors so a visit can be very beneficial to prevent further problems.
However if you are not local, do not have a local poultry vet or are self-isolating, I am now offering: Online (via Zoom) and telephone consultations.
Bring your hen to the camera and show me round your coop.
The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons no longer allows remote prescribing which was a temporarily COVID-19 measure. Therefore, if you think your bird requires medication please see your local veterinary service in the first instance.
If you have been unable to book an in-person appointment for a bird you are concerned about, or a house visit for a bird who is too unwell to be transported, please state this in your consultation request form. In these cases, all necessary acts will be taken in order to ensure the essential welfare needs of the bird.
If you can get an appointment with a local practitioner, I can also help them perform investigations or treatments if they require support.
