Emergency Number Available

After years of experience in loving, caring for and healing your birds, we have become aware of the urgent need for a service which provides our patients with immediate assistance after hours.

We know that your beloved birds do not always time their illnesses very well... What happens if you find yourself in a state of panic in the middle of the night because you've suddenly discovered that your bird is in a worrying condition and you have no idea how to help him?

For this very reason we have created the very first dedicated 24 hour veterinary helpline service in South Africa! Phoning the helpline after hours, will connect you with one of our veterinary sisters, who in many cases can provide you with the necessary assistance to resolve the issue. In more severe cases she will put your phone call through to the avian veterinarian who often can make a diagnosis without needing to physically see the bird and advise on the next steps to take.

Please note that adult birds have to go without food for 3 to 4 hours before wing clipping /nail trimming consultation and baby birds or birds still on porridge for 6 to 7 hours. Please note that this does NOT apply for sick birds. Consult with us, if unsure.
