    Hi, I am in the Eagle Rock area near Pasadena. Please recommend any good avian vets you've visited/know of in the area. I noticed none in the immediate LA area on the List of Avian vets post. The backyard chicken is an ever growing trend here in the city and I am sure there is a good avian vet out here somewhere. A lot of folks come to me for advice and I would like to have a good vet to refer people, as well as for myself. I went to one on Arroyo Pkwy in Pasadena who gave me some not so great feed advice already. Thankfully I knew better and discounted her as a "chicken" vet. I need someone who knows chickens and not just pet birds. These girls are special.


    2 Ameraucas
    1 Light Brahma
    1 Barnvelder
    1 BR
    1 Marans
    1 Patridge Cochin

    Just an update I did find an avian vet in Pasadena recently. I took my Cochin in for slipped tendons. She acted immediately, taped her up and is/was very helpful in treating her.
    Her info is: Tiffany Margolian; Exotic Animal Care Center; (626) 405-1777. I've seen her 3-4 times now and she is great so far.

    On a side note; I had an otherwise horrible experience at VCA A Breed Apart in Pasadena. The only avian vet they had there did not have a immediate resolution, advice or knowledge to help us. I will never return there.

    Someone started a list here of Avian Vets all over the country. Try searching for Vet list here on BYC. If you need more options.
    And, you might post your info to that thread, the good one you found.

    Take care.
