Welcome to Our Practice

We are a veterinary clinic that ONLY treats pet birds including pet chickens, ducks and geese. We have a Mission to Advance Avian Medicine throughout Southern California and the world and hope you decide to take the time to learn from all the information this site contains. On behalf of The BIRD Clinic and our entire staff we welcome you to our website. First, please check the "Website Updates" for a chronology of the website's development and changes. The Current Events section lists times when the clinic may be closed, but we have moved current closings to this home page for your convenience. This website overall is a way to assist our new and existing clients with their Avian Veterinary Needs and continually strive to earn your confidence in us. We also have many Client Handouts to help you with your avian education. All you need is Adobe Acrobat reader version 5.0 or greater and a printer.

 The Clinic is Closed Thursdays and Sundays - See Clinic Hours

Our BIRD Clinic handouts can be very useful to you.
Please check them out.....

If Dr Nemetz is out of town the dates will be listed below on this homepage 

The current conditions at The BIRD Clinic due to the COVID-19 situation

The clinic has remained open our normal hours (M, Tu, W, F, Sat) for Sick birds, medication refills, and ongoing medical cases

Effectively Monday May 25 and until further notice The BIRD Clinic will be seeing only
ill birds with priority to our existing clientele. Several local veterinarians have decided at this time
to no longer see avian cases putting extreme pressure on our clinic to fulfull all the demand.

We do allow are clients to enter our clinic but ask that you wear masks until our county policy changes
This also means we cannot see as many patients in any given day,

Also we ask to have only the owner of the patient
(+/- spouse) come for any appointment and not bring children to the clinic

And if you will be late or not able to make an appointment please call as our appointment schedule
is very tight and if you do not show up you are hurting a true patient in need getting help.
All appointments 15min late or later will have to be rescheduled

Thank you for your patience and understanding at this time and we at the
Bird Clinic want to continue to help with the well being of our avian pets as
well as also keeping our clients healthy.

For cleaning/disinfecting surfaces we have been using synphenol at the clinic for 30+ years and is
extremely effective 
at killing many bacterial and viral agents INCLUDING Corona virus.
The concentrate is available at BirdStuff (located just south of the clinic)

(1/2oz of concentrate makes 1gallon and has a 7 day surface residual effectiveness)

If you need ANY Rx refills PLEASE contact us ahead of time so they can be taken care of.
We require 24hrs lead time to refill prescriptions as many are custom compounded for your pet bird.



Clients ask us, where do we take our bird if The BIRD Clinic is closed? This is not an easy question to answer since there are very few veterinarians that are comfortable in treating birds.
