Frustrating vet experience?

Guess I'm here to vent. I posted earlier about a possibly sick conure and the vet visits have been a nightmare. So the 1st time I took him (about 2 hr commute overall), they couldn't take blood because they wanted the 2nd vet there helping. Went the next day for blood. Some of the blood tests came back elevated so I was recommended a second vet (different office). Went to an appointment, was told they couldn't x-ray the same day. Took in my bird again this morning, has been at the vets for 7+ hours. When I called the vet was performing a procedure on another animal. I've been worried about my bird all morning and dread them saying they were unable to do the x-ray today. Am I being unreasonable? I try to practice patience as I work in the medical field myself, but this is really getting on my nerves!

Re: Frustrating vet experience?

Look up a avian vet that specializes in birds in your area. Avoid regular vets and most exotic vets.

Re: Frustrating vet experience?

I'm praying for you and your birdie.
This sounds very frustrating.
And I'm not liking that they aren't skilled in taking blood. I would go get your bird, and forget the x-rays. You need to find a certified avain vet, or find a vet school. It's frustrating finding skilled avain vets, often you do have to drive a ways...
I hope your bird is ok.
