Rehabilitation

A Pileated Woodpecker receives an ophthalmologic exam

Our volunteer veterinarians give each of our avian patients immediate care; every bird that comes through our door receives a comprehensive physical examination, full-body radiographs, fluids, and medication. When necessary, our vets perform advanced orthopedic and soft-tissue surgeries.

Once our patients are stabilized, our rehabilitation volunteers nurse them back to health by providing daily care, proper nutrition, and any necessary physiotherapy to encourage healing and a return to function.

Our veterinarians and rehabilitation volunteers are active in many professional organizations, including the Association of Avian Veterinarians, the National Wildlife Rehabilitators Association, the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Raptor Research Foundation, and The Wildlife Society.
