We have a wealth of experience as bird vets and a particular love of and focus on backyard poultry. Dr Gary believes the keeping of chickens, ducks, geese and even turkeys as a wonderful, sustainable and smart thing for urban residents to do. The process of raising, nurturing and benefiting from small backyard poultry flocks is excellent for childhood development and for adult mental well-being. There are some health risks that need to be managed and relationships with neighbours certainly need to be respected – but it is all achievable!
We can provide flock health monitoring and a wealth of useful chook management advice. We provide experienced in-house pathology testing and utilise specialist labs for ultra-sensitive DNA testing. From quarantine periods to compassionate and cost-effective home euthanasia, the full life-cycle of urban poultry keeping is taken care of for you.
Where birds require procedures or diagnostics we cannot provide at your home we can provide transport and the facilities at at our fully equipped veterinary hospital in Manning.
About bird vet Dr Gary Beilby…

Post graduate study and then six years treating birds at Wattle Grove with Tim Oldfield followed. From backyard chickens to breeding macaws I am happy to help all your feathered friends right where they live.
