Eklin system and Dr. Nemetz in 2005 developed the first in the world direct digital radiology (DR) system and techniques for the avian patient! (Look at what digital can do).

The Year 2006 - 2007
It has been a long time coming but the new BIRD Clinic opened May 9, 2007.

The Year 2017
This year Dr Nemetz will host three veterinary students in a continual goal to spread quality avian medicine. It takes a lot of donated time but Dr. Nemetz feels it is important to help teach our future veterinarians how to care for our feathered friends everywhere they may live in the world. There are many changes going on in the avian veterinary community and unfortunately there are fewer practitioners seeing bird cases so it is important to spark and nurture the passion in the ones that want to learn more about the wonderful world of birds.
