Midshore Veterinary Service
Midshore offers the very best Avian vet care I have ever received. No doubt, the very best avian vet on the Maryland eastern shore. I can't stress how impressed I was with their knowledge,expertise,thoroughness and compassion. Testing and immediate treatment as you wait These guys don't fool around. They truly care for their patient and the owner. Their pricing was amazing too, half the price of neighboring so called avian vet Dr Shaw of Chesapeake Bay Vet Hospital in Chester Maryland (they are another story horrible, extremely overpriced for inadequate service, horribly inexperienced in avian medicine almost killed my bird and most certainly would have had I followed their treatment plan..DON'T USE THEM). Dr McConkey of Midshore Vet was amazing. She saved my 14 yr old Lori parrot "Herkie" from certain death and I will forever be thankful. I strongly suggest you take your bird to none other, no matter the commute.

Tips & Advices
Most 24-hour clinics do not allow owners to stay with their pets overnight. However, many do have specific visiting hours or will let owners see their pets at any point during the day. In addition, owners can call most clinics at any time for an update on their pet's well being.
  • Important phone numbers, especially those of the the veterinary clinic, the animal hospital or emergency clinic, and the poison control center
  • A book detailing pet first-aid steps
  • Copy of medical records
  • Nylon leash
  • Muzzle (only use if pet is not vomiting and has no difficulty breathing)
  • Absorbent gauze
  • Nonlatex disposable gloves
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers
  • Nail clippers
  • Digital thermometer
  • Sterile saline solution
  • Hydrogen peroxide (to induce vomiting only at the recommendation of a veterinarian
  • Milk of magnesia (to absorb poison only at the recommendation of a veterinarian)
Find a 24-hour animal hospital that provides emergency services within your area. Keep the facility's contact information in a place that's easy to locate, such as the refrigerator, address book, or smartphone. Most veterinary clinics operate on standard business hours and are not equipped to handle emergencies.
Veterinary clinics operate on a smaller scale than animal hospitals. The latter are more likely open 24 hours and provide emergency services. The former generally operate on typical office hours and only perform wellness exams and minor surgeries. Veterinary clinics also do not generally perform laboratory tests on site.
The specifics vary depending on the type of visit. For a wellness exam, bring:
  • Medical records
  • The type or brand of food the pet eats
  • Medication (including flea, tick, and heartworm medication).
If the animal needs medical treatment, the following may be helpful depending on the situation:
  • Fresh stool sample
  • Vomit sample
  • Video of the pet engaging in abnormal behavior
  • Substance the pet may have ingested
