    I took my hen to Dr Moussa about a year and a half ago for bumblefoot, She seemed very nice and prescribed an antibiotic and anti-imflammatory. After 3-4 days on these meds, I noticed my hen had lost weight, and became so weak she would hardly stand up. I tried calling Dr Moussa for help, and had to leave messages on her voice mail. She never returned my calls. I finally spoke with a person on my fourth call. Dr Moussa did not come to the phone, but had this other person tell me she could not help me further and that I should take my hen somewhere else. Luckily I found an avian vet at the VCA Smoketown Animal Hospital, and all turned out well. Maybe others have luck with Dr Moussa, but I do not recommend her after what we experienced.

    Everyone is entitled to there opinion. There is so few vets that will see chickens in the area, I hope this will not hinder others from using Dr. Moussa. The reason you probably could not get in touch with her is she is usually in surgery. I don't know the length of time it took between the 1st and 4th call. If you listen to her message there is a cell phone number for emergencies. She was being honest about not being able to fully help you. She does not have access to a lab for diagnostics. So if your hen required that, it could be why she said that. She will have her vet-tec be the go between if she is doing surgeries or sterile procedures and cannot touch the phone. The antibiotics and anti-inflammatory might have been in her opinion the correct remedy. Being a vet is not an exact science. I could take a chicken to the place you recommend, the chicken could not get better, I then take her to Dr. Moussa and she could fix her. It is subjective. Vets are not able to ask there patients about pain, symptoms, etc.....................

    Well, my little piper never made it out of the shell. I am so bummed. I kinda freaked out when I saw the pip (wasn't expecting it) and I think I amy have raised the humidity too high too fast. I so hope the others hatch!
