Re: I have a red Lored Amazon

Best of luck finding a trusted Avian Vet. We struggled with this before finally finding a great one at a University. Our first vet appointment covered a physical, nail trim, beak examination (no trim was needed), DNA Sexing, and a blood work up. We spent just under $300. Of course every office is different.

We were not use to that kind of bill for an annual exam. (domesticated pet owners here) However, this is really a life long companion animal. To us it was worth the money. It gives us a better understanding of her needs, gives us a base for the future, and helps down the road if an illness/emergency does come up. Going forward we will just do an annual physical which is $75. Other work would come as needed.
