Providing The Best Veterinary Care For Your Pet Bird

We treat all types of birds from chickens to parrots, and even little finches.

Birds make beautiful pets, but to keep that beauty alive and well takes delicate care. This is where our dedicated team of avian veterinarians comes in.

Our flying friends come in all shapes and sizes, colours and species – The Unusual Pet Vets cater to each with the utmost of care. So if you are looking for a skilled poultry vet, exotic bird vet, chicken vet, parrot vet or just an avian veterinarian with a wealth of knowledge and experience, The Unusual Pet Vets are here to help.

We are highly qualified exotic bird vets with clinics located in Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane, and the Sunshine Coast. Our teams have a vast range of expertise in treating a diverse range of birds including:

All parrot species including budgies, eclectus parrots, weiros (cockatiels), cockatoos, corellas, galahs, lovebirds, caiques, rosellas, macaws, conures, alexandrines, indian ring necks, king parrots, princess parrots, lorikeets, and many others

Canaries, finches, and other passerines

Waterbirds like ducks and geese

Chickens of all shapes and sizes

Like us, these beautiful creatures can become unwell and will require attention from a trained avian vet to foster a speedy recovery.

You might have a pet cockatoo or perhaps a pet bird that is slightly more unusual than the norm. Regardless of the type, each bird is best treated by a trusted bird veterinarian with in-depth knowledge of avian medicine.

Patient Story

This little baby Galah came in to see our Murdoch team due to a wound that was present on its neck. The little galah had what is known as a crop fistula, whereby a hole had formed in the crop leading to ingested food oozing out onto the lower neck region. This condition generally requires surgical debridement and repair. 

The Galah was anaesthetised and we are pleased to report that surgery went very well, and the little baby galah went home that same afternoon.

There are a number of causes of this condition including thermal burns from over-heating hand-raising mix, accidental puncturing from a crop tube, infection as well as traumatic injuries.

Excellent Service, Caring and Professional Advice

Excellent service, caring and professional advice, and very good handling for our pet bird, on our first visit today at The Unusual Pet Vets, Jindalee. Very helpful, and they also provided further reading for us via email after our appointment regarding a few things we asked about. All staff were lovely and friendly – from the initial phone booking (you can do internet bookings too) to and including the consult. Thank you very much – we’ll definitely be back! Highly recommend.


Lisa Hack

Received the Best Service

Received the best service from Dr Sasha at the Sunshine Coast clinic. She taught me so much in such a kind manner and was very gentle to my Guinea pig. She then followed up by emailing further information on Guinea pig general care. Highly recommend!
