Hi, I'm Dr. Scott Ford...

Adult female sage grouse being bandedand I'm a specialist in avian medicine and surgery. I attend to pet and wild birds exclusively because, the way I see it, birds are a diverse group of animals with special needs and it requires focus to be the best at caring for them. I see pet bird patients in Wisconsin. I am also available for consultations and wild bird research support anywhere in North America or beyond.

This website is primarily for following my wild bird care activities. If you are a researcher who needs a veterinarian for your project, you've come to the right place! Please check out my research and conservation page.

Help Me Help Wildlife by Donating to the Capnograph Fund...


A capnograph measures exhaled CO2 during surgery providing vital information about the patient's blood oxygenation and respiratory function. There is a portable unit that will work perfectly for my remote field surgeries but I need donors' help to purchase it. Read more about it and donate at GoFundMe. Thank you!


Discontinued Association with Brook-Falls Veterinary Hospital

I discontinued my affiliation with Brook-Falls Veterinary Hospital effective September 17, 2016. I'm not sure exactly where I'll be seeing pet birds in the area yet but stay tuned and I'll announce it here and on the Facebook site. To all my clients (and birds): I miss you so much. I really enjoyed my time at Brook-Falls and especially getting to know you all.
