Read What Our Clients Say

  • "Dr Ann Bourke has helped me care for my many feathered children for the past 2 years. She is kind and caring, very knowledgeable, and has a great manner with the birds themselves. It's also a wonderful service that she is a mobile vet, meeting and caring for your animals at your own home, avoiding the stress of transporting your birds to another location and allowing multiple animals to be examined in one visit with ease! I highly recommend Ann to help you care for your babies!"
  • "We met Dr Bourke today, she visits my vets office weekly. She was great with my birds and I love the fact that she is so close. Knowing that she does house calls gives me peace of mind. It is great knowing that I have someone to call if my bird children are sick!!"
  • "Truly cares about her patients/clients. Amazing at what she does, responds very quickly, and very personable. My mom and I had an orange winged amazon, a yellow naped amazon and a sulphur crested Cockatoo over the last couple decades, all older rescues from bad situations and 2 of them came to us with behavioral problems. All 3 of them responded to her surprisingly well! Highly recommended!"
