We have collected the names of avian veterinarians throughout the United States and Canada.
Some of these veterinarians were recommended by people like you. You had a problem and these veterinarians helped you professionally, compassionately, and at a reasonable price. If you would like to add your local vet, with whom you have confidence in their expertise and experience, please send us their name, city, state, and phone number. We will include them in this list.
The remaining veterinarians are members of the ABVP (American Board of Veterinary Practitioners) and are certified with avian expertise. Veterinarians interested in being certified by the ABVP go through an extensive certification process that requires submission of original avian case reports for evaluation and, following acceptable submission, successful passing of the Certification Exam which is especially designed for avian species. To remain active, ABVP-certified veterinarians must re-certify every 10 years through credit accumulation (sumission of new case reports, continuing education credits, publications, lectures, etc.) or by examination.
There is also an organization called the AAV (Associationn of Avian Veterinarians), which is comprised of veterinarians who have an interest in birds. The Association of Avian Veterinarians is a membership organization. Any veterinarian can join by paying the membership dues. These veterinarians are not listed; you can visit their website to find these veterinarians.
