August 2020: Dr. Grayson Doss

AAV Member Since: 


What was the first bird job you ever had?

I worked at a local pet store in town which always had several small parrot species for people to interact with.

Most memorable AAV experience or contribution

The AAV has supported me numerous times since the start of my veterinary career, which enabled me to advance in a career working with birds.

What is your favorite avian species and why?

Wow, there are so many amazing species out there. I'd say it's a tie between brown pelicans and red-tailed hawks. I gained a lot of respect for these awesome birds as a student working with the Wildlife Hospital of Louisiana.

Best benefits of AAV membership?

Being part of a group of people with a shared vision and passion for avian medicine and surgery. Also, being able to get JAMS and attend the annual conference are major benefits!

If you had not chosen your present career, what would you be doing?

Hmm. Good question. I love music and think being a composer would be fascinating. Let's go with that.

What was your favorite class or activity in vet school/vet tech school/college?

Physiology-focused classes were favorites. It's fun (for me) to learn how things work at a microscopic level.
