BIRD OWNERS, BEWARE of "so called" Avian specialist/Vet Dr. Shaw of Chesapeake Vet Hospital in Chester Maryland. They are HORRIBLE, Price gouging X10 extremely overpriced for inadequate services, horribly inexperienced in avian medicine I don't believe they are avian specialists at all. They almost killed my bird recently on 11/12/14 and most certainly would have had I followed their suggested "non-treatment" treatment plan costing $121 for nothing. It started when I was asked to drop my bird off since Dr Shaw was booked and my bird was so sick, since I was an existing customer and my bird an existing patient, I did as instructed. After 6 hours had passed I was told all was well and to pick-up my bird. The charge for this days services ( actually non-service).. $121 . $30 of this charge was for a petri dish of cane sugar mixed w/tap water that my poor bird was too sick to drink, yet they claimed they saw her drink and showed no signs of illness and the additional $91 was for the apparent non-observation/exam by Dr Shaw (no fecal,saliva or blood tests done, no on-site medical treatment, no meds, NOTHING medically was done) Yet when I got her home and tried feeding her the same sugar water she immediately vomited it up just as she was doing prior to dropping her off. I truly doubt she was observed at all. The next day after seeing Dr Shaw now with my bird near death, I took my bird to Midshore Vet in Easton for evaluation/second opinion. Turned out my bird had a severe life threatening infection and would have died within 1 or 2 days had I not taken her to Midshore where she received emergency treatment. After several visits to Chesapeake Anim. Hosp. over 10 years, each costing from $121-$200 + per visit for the same horrible inadequate service (actually non-service, non-treatment they only advise) and this their final failure, I have officially fired them..BEWARE, PLEASE, for your pet birds sake DON'T USE THEM).

"MIDSHORE VETERINARY SERVICE IS THE VERY BEST"
Dr McConkey of Midshore Vet was amazing. She saved my 14 yr old Lori parrot "Herkie" from certain death and I will forever be thankful. I strongly suggest you take your bird to none other in this area, no matter the commute its worth it.
