Avian & Exotics
We work hard to expand and provide our customers with new avian and exotics services.
Some of the species we work with are below.
When you clip a bird’s feathers, you protect them as well as protect your home. Wing clipping is a non-painful process that keeps your bird safe and prevents them from chewing holes in your doors and window frames. This procedure limits your bird’s ability to fly, which helps keep them safe from injuries.
When your bird’s feathers get professionally clipped, this ensures that the correct feathers are removed that don’t irritate the skin. Improperly clipped wings will cause your bird to chew or pluck its feathers, and inexperienced wing clipping could potentially result in a blood feather being trimmed on accident, which can become life-threatening.
Along with these services, PAVG also safely performs toenail and beak trims which preserve your bird’s aesthetic appearance. Please contact us if you have any questions, or if you’d like to set up an appointment for this procedure.
When rabbits are not feeling well, they tend to hide signs of pain or illness. These furry creatures are also susceptible to other issues including cancer, hairballs, parasites, and overgrown teeth. Please contact PAVG if you notice your rabbit:
- Has low or increased temperature
- Gurgling stomach
- Runny stools
- Discharge from the nose or eyes
- Begins tilting their head
- Has bald patches
- Has a loss of appetite
- Shows any other abnormal behavior
Rabbits should also be seen for regular dental checkups to ensure that their teeth are healthy to avoid any severe, life-threatening conditions. We also suggest you have your rabbit spayed or neutered (this does not affect their personality), especially since they can have up to 14 babies at a time and can potentially give birth once a month.
Other benefits of spaying or neutering include:
- Protection from different types of cancer
- Less aggression
- Eliminates spraying, mounting, biting, and destructive chewing
