Adoption FAQ

Waterfowl Veterinarian Directory: States M-W

Majestic has not had direct experience with most of the vets listed on this page and cannot vouch for their services. Families should ask their own questions and choose their vet care wisely. Be proactive, do your research, read up & get second opinions whenever necessary.  

We have had experience or received excellent feedback from those vet practices flagged "Top Vet!" However, Majestic does not guaranty their services and is no way liable for your choice of veterinarian.

Questions you can ask a potential vet:

* How many duck/goose patients does this vet have?

* How many ducks & geese does this vet see as patients in any given month/year?

* What formal education has this vet received that has directly prepared them for the special handling of waterfowl (not parrots), including any training seminars attended?

* Is this vet experienced with reproductive issues that may occur in egg-laying ducks & geese and how to properly treat those issues should they arise? 

* Has this vet operated on ducks or geese in the past? If so, what types of surgeries did they perform and what were those outcomes?

* What Guide Books does this vet recommend you read in order to better care for your ducks & geese? (If this one stumps them... be wary!)

* If ever in the future this vet should become stumped by your duck or goose's medical condition, what resources will they tap into for assistance? (Ideally, you are looking for a vet who is willing to consult with other vets. They are the best. Avoid vets who will "read up" or "surf the internet" as their sole means of research.)

HINT:  One tell-tale indication that a vet does not have a lot of experience with waterfowl is often demonstrated in their inability to easily open up their bills. A vet who tries to pry a duck or goose's bill open at the TIP is demonstrating their experience with parrots and their inexperience with waterfowl. You want to see a vet who knows to pry the bill open at the BASE. A vet who cannot manage to open a bill within a few seconds most likely does not have many waterfowl patients.

ANOTHER HINT:  Before deciding on your vet, ask for their voicemail and then leave a short message stating that you are looking for a vet for your duck or goose, but would like to talk to them briefly before choosing their practice.

Remember, you want a responsive doctor for your duck or goose, and one who is willing to call you is an important quality. We are always more impressed with vets who personally return their phone calls than those who have their staff return their calls for them--worse yet is the practice that does not return their calls at all!

If a staff member does call you back, don’t rule them out yet. Once you start asking them the above questions they will likely discover that the vet needs to handle your call personally and will pass that message along.

BEWARE of the practice that wants you to come in and charge you for an office visit to address your questions/concerns before you’ve even decided on their services. Talking with you is in their best interests too. You need a vet and they need patients. This is business though, so remember to keep your conversation brief.
