Avian Medicine

Susan Shannon and Pauline Howard have a special interest in birds from budgies all the way through to hawks and swans. They both have a special interest in wildlife and volunteer at the Willowbank Wildlife Hospital. We often have injured wild birds in for treatment so every day is different! These can be Kea, Kiwi, Penguins or NZ Flacons amongst other species. Pauline attends the Antarctic Centre regularly to check up and treat their penguins.
