Hi, I'm Dr. Scott Ford...
and I'm a board-certified (American Board of Veterinary Practitioners) specialist in avian medicine and surgery. I attend 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 the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area. I am also available for remote consults and wild bird research support anywhere else.
I am frequently away on wild bird field projects. If you are unable to reach me, feel free to send an email if your concern is non-urgent. Otherwise, if you have a pet bird emergency in the Milwaukee area, please contact MECA at 414-543-7387 or the University of Wisconsin-Madison veterinary teaching hospital.
I've been seeing pet birds since 1998. Since 2002, I have been dedicating my practice of veterinary medicine exclusively to birds. I currently reside in the Milwaukee, WI area but have also worked in clinics in Alaska, California, and Washington state.
For emergencies or specialist referral, contact Milwaukee Emergency Clinic for Animals (MECA)
For medical consults, your veterinarian can contact me through the Veterinary Information Network (VIN)
For routine annual exams, consider the wellness clinics I offer through the Center for Animal Rehabilitation and Education (CARE). They are located at 720 N. Barstow St., Waukesha, WI 53186. I hold clinics there from 1-5 pm, usually the third Saturday of each month. Call 262-875-4115 for more information or to make an appointment.
I have dedicated most of my career to the care and conservation of wild birds. If you're a research biologist, a rehabilitator, or just someone that loves to help wild birds, check out my website dedicated to the care of wild birds:
