Birch Heath Veterinary Clinic is a companion animal, avian and reptile surgery based in the village of Tarporley, near Chester. Our friendly team of veterinary surgeons,veterinary nurses and receptionists welcomes all pets - we aim to ensure animals and their owners feel comfortable from the moment they walk through the door.
We are recognised as one of the best equipped surgeries in the country for treating raptors, parrots, cage & aviary birds, waterfowl, reptiles, rabbits, tortoises, exotic small mammals, zoo and wildlife. Our veterinary surgeons have an international reputation, and have lectured extensively both in the UK and worldwide. Uniquely the practice has outdoor mews for the hospitalisation of raptors and ventilated purpose built parrot wards. Birch Heath has the facilities to hospitalise any small animal, reptile, avian or exotic mammal. And of course - Birch Heath have some rather lovely staff pets!
Reptiles are still imported unlike birds and they are also bred in large numbers in the UK. For this reason they are forming an ever increasingly percentage of our client base. We are already able to hospitalise Tortoises, reptiles and serpents in specialised housing and can provide the appropriate heating, lighting (UV-B) and diet. We have plans to extend the surgery to develop a separate reptile hospitalisation unit as we already provide for parrots, rabbits and raptors.
We offer all routine procedures for reptiles including neutering. The practice has pioneered the use of diagnostic endoscopy in this group and we regularly perform endoscopy on tortoises, lizards and dragons. We are developing endoscopic surgical techniques.
