For The Birds is a bird hospital specializing in avian veterinary medicine, offering the best health care options for your pet bird. We care for all birds small and large, from budgies and cockatiels to parrots and ducks.

The avian hospital offers emergency services during our regular business hours. We offer routine avian check-ups and procedures by appointment only. If you would like to make an appointment, please call us.

We are currently not accepting new clients.

What to expect during your bird's appointment.


We provide emergency services. Therefore, we see those cases which could be life or limb threatening first. We will try to see you in the order in which you arrive but patients with such a problem may be seen before you. If you feel your pet is seriously ill and cannot wait, tell us so we can re-evaluate your needs.

Thank you

COVID-19 update:

  • Per CDC guidelines, We are still in quarantine lock down. To ensure our small staff stay as healthy as possible we will continue with no contact  appointments on a limited basis.
  • No contact appointment policy: When you arrive for your appointment, call us and we will give you instructions. The doctor will call you to consult after looking at your bird. When we are done we will call you for payment or use the payment form you provided and bring the bird back to our front door for you to take them home.  Do not leave birds unattended - wait until we come to the door.
  • We have adjusted our hours to Tues-Sat 9:00am to 3:00pm.
  • You can order our food on this website, or call us to order food for pickup or shipping.
  • If you have any questions or need to schedule an appointment, call us at 408-255-1739

The Bird Store

For The Birds also offers bird supplies including bird food and bird toys.

We carry Harrison's and Lafeber's bird food because of years of experience and proven results that our doctors have seen. Our food is guaranteed fresh and full of its original nutrients because we do NOT warehouse large quantities. This means your bird will get the best food available.

Our bird toys are approved by Dr. Fern Van Sant, using only bird safe materials and guaranteed chemical free. All bird toys are made of natural materials, using vegetable dyes and bird safe hardware.
