Hi I can only speek very highly of the care and support we received from Dr Phil and his staff. Unfortunally our outcome was not what we wanted. We found the staff very compassionate and caring at out time of loss. Thankyou for all you did for our little Mini

Dr Phil is an absolute first class avian vet. I wouldn't take my precious chickens anywhere else. He is very caring and his knowledge of chicken health is second to none. I'd recommend Dr Phil and the Burwood Bird and Animal Hospital for first class avian care. Thank you Dr Phil and your staff.
