With the increasing popularity of keeping chickens, we appreciate that our clients deserve to have a Vet with a more in-depth knowledge about chicken health.
In recent years we have sent three of our Vets on a full day course to refresh and update their knowledge of chicken husbandry and diseases – specifically aimed at people keeping chickens on a smaller scale.

So now the practice is better equipped to deal with your pet chicken problems which we trust will provide a great service to owners of these increasingly popular birds.
Along with the extra training we have also subscribed the practice as members of a chicken interest group which gives us access to a wealth of expertise from a specialist poultry vet practice. It also allows us to purchase chicken specific medications in smaller quantities to suit individual chickens.
As a client of Bicester Vets you can also register at www.chickenvet.co.uk which will give you access to discounts & newsletters as well as an introductory welcome pack after a one off payment of £15.
So we trust that you will find this a real step forward for Bicester Vets as we adapt to the ever increasing popularity of “The Backyard Chicken”.
