  • Poultry Medicine Referrals

    Poultry cases are seen on a daily basis. Patients are generally backyard flocks and pet birds.  No commercial poultry work is carried out.  We treat all our poultry cases with as much care and attention as the more commonly presented pets. The treatment is geared towards the individual bird or small flock. Illness workups are supported by diagnostics such as the use of ultrasound on the abdominal cavity. We also have the facility to anaesthetise and perform surgery where needed. 


    Poultry referrals are taken by Robin Creighton at Millennium Veterinary Practice. Robin has kept poultry all his life. He breeds and shows large fowl and bantams, having been highly successful and winning supreme show champion at both the Poultry Club of Great Britain and the National Federation of Poultry Club championship, beating over 6,000 birds on each occasion.   Robin is an Honorary Veterinary Surgeon for the Poultry Club of Great Britain. As the vet for the championship shows he gives advice to their council on health and disease matters throughout the year.
