Middle Road Veterinary Hospital

Handy hints for your Avian pet when visiting Dr Terry

Your Avian Vet, Dr Terry Martin has a wealth of experience in avian veterinary medicine. 

When coming to an appointment at Middle Road Vet, please make sure we do the following;

  1. Please bring me in my regular cage so Dr Terry can examine my home.
  2. If the bird’s home is too large to transport, then a smaller cage that is suitable to house the bird for a couple of days must be used.
  3. The cage should have an appropriate sized door, with perches, food and water containers
  4. Empty water container and place back in the cage while travelling.
  5. Leave normal food in my cage
  6. Don’t clean my cage. Place fresh paper over the bottom of the cage 2 hours before travel if possible.  If not, place fresh paper in the cage regardless.  This allows Dr Terry to examine droppings and to conduct a thorough examination.
  7. Do not remove any other play toys or items in the cage.

An adult cage bird presented without a cage cannot be examined by the vet.


  1. Nestling being hand reared should be brought in their hand rearing box
  2. Non cage bird species (for example, Poultry) are best transported in a cat carrier or similar
