Main goals and mission


Companion birds are valuable, intelligent and attractive pets. The value of qualified veterinary care and education in the responsible care of their charges, should be communicated to owners by their veterinarians.

Our goal is to provide veterinarians with the means to continually enhance their clinical professional knowledge and skills in avian medicine, and incentivize young veterinarians to pursue avian medicine.


We consider the preservation of species and their habitats to be of paramount importance, and continuosly try to contribute to this cause.

Avian species can be important sentinels regarding the health of the ecosystems they are a part of, providing information relevant for veterinary medicine, human medicine, biology, epidemiology and much more.


Research improves the knowledge about birds and avian medicine and helps to improve diagnostics, therapy, and prevention of diseases and conservation of endangered species.

Thus, veterinarians, their clients, educators and researchers involved in avian medicine should have access to appropriate, relevant technical information and insight.
