Find-A-Vet

Locate an Avian Veterinarian Near You

Whether you are a new bird owner, moving to a new neighborhood or looking for a new avian veterinarian, you may find AAV's Find-a-Vet tool useful to locate an avian veterinarian you are both comfortable with and confident in.

Many species of pet birds have a long lifespan, and most people who obtain a companion or aviary bird expect a long-term, rewarding relationship with their bird. An avian veterinarian, monitoring your bird’s health, can play a vital role in this goal. The Association of Avian Veterinarians recommends regular checkups for companion birds to ensure they live a full, healthy life.
