Pet owner says avian vet saved his pet bird’s life
Cary, North Carolina, Angie’s List member Craig M. says Dr. Greg Burkett, a veterinarian at highly rated The Birdie Boutique of Durham, North Carolina, saved his beloved conure, Snuggles, before ever seeing the bird.
Craig met Burkett at a free seminar and explained his pet’s symptoms, and the treatments and advice from other veterinarians. Craig says Burkett suggested he start a new health care regimen.

“I implemented those changes immediately,” Craig says. “In the following days, I saw a complete turnaround in Snuggles’ health. The exact opposite outcome from what other vets had led me to expect.”
From that moment on, Snuggles became a patient of Burkett’s. When he travels, Craig boards Snuggles at The Birdie Boutique. Since his practice is limited to birds, Burkett keeps a supply of bird toys and supplies at the ready. If not on hand, Burkett can ship them from a warehouse at no extra charge, Craig says.
“Snuggles has never had any health problems under Dr. Burkett’s care,” Craig says. “Dr. Burkett answers all of my questions with patience, often going into great detail to satisfy my needs and curiosity.”
In addition to his regular practice, Craig says Burkett offers free seminars and teaches veterinary students how to care for birds. Burkett also is available seven days a week and answers his emergency calls.
“Dr. Burkett loves birds,” Craig says. “I wouldn’t take Snuggles anywhere else!”
