Re bird vet in Christchurch - I have heard that the avian vet who looks after the birds at Willowbank Wildlife Reserve practises at Straven Road Vet Clinic. I've also heard that he is brilliant with birds. Haven't had to use them myself yet, thankfully.

I did not know that Bryan Gatrall was good with chickens also. We take our Dog for a drive and ferry ride just because he is such a good vet. Now that I have 40 ex-battery chickens thats good to know. Thanks !

Whangarei - Sandra at Kamo Vets - http://www.kamovets.co.nz/

She's been great with our chooks, with problems ranging from stitching various bits of chickens back together through to an unknown respiratory illness which required a lot of coordination with MPI. She knows what she's talking about and doesn't make you feel like a right idiot for having to bring in a sick chook in the first place. :)

Neil Christensen (Avivet) is no longer in the Manawatu, he has moved to Auckland. The details on his website have yet to be changed, but he can still be contacted via email.

Well I was able to email him and get him to send me some wormer for my chooks. Alot cheaper than going to the local vets ($16 for one dose of flubanol) and the liquid stuff is much easier to to measure out and dispense to the chooks.

Just wanted to let people know who live just north of Auckland that the vet at Animates in Silverdale are good with poultry. I took my rooster in this morning. Unfortunately King George had to be put down as he had a spinal problem, potentially a tumour and wasn't going to get better. At least now he is not suffering.
