BACKYARD CHICKEN AND OTHER POULTRY SERVICES AT YARMOUTH VETERINARY CENTER

 

At YVC, chickens, ducks, and other "backyard poultry" birds are frequent patients. We see a lot of them, and we really enjoy caring for them.

 

Our care options include everything that we do for other pets, including exams, laboratory tests, x-rays, ultrasound exams and medical and surgical treatments. We have kept our prices for these services relatively low for poultry, to make it more realistic for some owners to care for their birds.

 

To give a special mention to just a few of our poultry care options:

 

~ Fecal exams, to test for parasites, are $25. These can be dropped off any time, and we do not require an exam of the bird(s).

 

~ X-rays ($25) and ultrasound exams ($25) are often very helpful diagnostic tests. They are easy to do and non-invasive. We have extensive experience performing these tests for chickens and other backyard poultry.

 

~ Necropsies are animal autopsies. At YVC they are $25 for chickens we have not seen and no charge for chickens we have seen as patients. Because owners usually have more than one bird, determining the cause of illness or death can be important information.
