Great avian veterinarian
Dawn from Albuquerque

It has been challenging to find Avian veterinarians to take care of my pet bird. Thankfully VCA has a great Avian veterinarian named Dr. Russman! Her business card states that she sees small animals, pocket pets, and exotics. She has been wonderful with my cockatiels and I highly recommend her to anyone with birds. I am glad that she has special training to take care of animals other than dogs and cats.
