Caring for pet poultry

chickens, ducks and other species

We have years of experience and the latest technologies to address veterinary problems in pet poultry.



racing and fancy

Racing pigeons not only need to be healthy, they need to be competitive. Started by Dr Colin Walker, a world authority on both racing and fancy pigeons, MBVC has a long tradition of working with both racing and fancy pigeons.

Excellent bird vet. Only vet that is an expert with birds, most other vets are great with cats & dogs and really have no idea when it comes to birds.

Excellent vet, friendly staff. Mel is an awesome pet behaviourist. My new baby conure had an overall health check, as well as getting microchipped. He approves!
