Willow came to us last week and needed most of her left foot amputated and her entire right foot amputated due to severe frostbite. She's a tiny little 5 month old runner duck that was under 1 kg on arrival and has had an excellent response so far in our care; but she needs a long term orthodic device to help her live her best quality of life.
She's made friends and has a good level of spunk and we are so hopeful she'll go on to live a fulfilling life after learning to accommodate to her new confirmation. Please consider making a $5 toward her care or visit https://littlebirdco.org to donate more.
At Avian & Exotic Veterinary Housecall Service we strive to help you support the captive avian, herps, fish and other exotics you share your life and home with. We offer a variety of flexible consults from online visits*, to visits outdoors on site, drop off visits, and in-vehicle visits.
We strive to provide timely and accurate advice. We can help you with numerous concerns, from management of husbandry, diet, management of chronic issues, virtual assessment of urgent issues and behavioral consults. We can assist with determining the urgency of a situation and deciding whether your friend requires immediate care or whether you can wait to see us or alternatively provide some management at home. Clients can use this website to request medication refills, request appointments and share updates on their pet's progress with Dr. Nalezny.
*Telemedicine services are available to current clients with patients with an updated exam on file.
