Dr Amber Lee (She/Her)

BVSc, DABVP (Avian Practice)

In 2012, Dr Amber made the huge move to the USA, where she undertook a one-year rotating internship at VCA Advanced Veterinary Care Center in Indianapolis. Shen then stayed in the area to complete a residency in Avian Practice at the Avian & Exotic Animal Clinic of Indianapolis under the guidance of Dr Angela Lennox.

After completing her residency, Amber moved to Boston to practice at VCA South Shore and later at VCA Wakefield Animal Hospital. 2017, she passed her Avian Practice examinations through the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (ABVP). This is a culmination of many years of hard work and study so that she can provide a higher standard of care for her patients. There are approximately 125 other specialists in Avian Practice worldwide, and Amber is the first Australian to achieve this qualification.

Dr Amber is comfortable treating all species, but her interests are avian reproduction, backyard poultry medicine, anaesthesia, and pain management. Dr Amber has published several articles and textbook chapters for the education of veterinarians and pet owners. She is an active member of the Association of Avian Veterinarians (AAV) and the Association of Exotic Mammal Veterinarians (AEMV).

At the end of 2020, Dr Amber moved back home to the Mornington Peninsula to be closer to family and friends, and she looks forward to meeting you and your feathered, furred, and scaled pets.
