Avian Vet recommendations?

My wife and I are moving to Lugano in August. Does anyone have a line on a list of avian vets? It may be that in a town the size of Lugano there are no avian/exotic vets so any good recs that aren't too far would be good.

Thanks for that. Fortunately I have enough French to wade through some of the links to vets. :-) There seems to be at least one vet in Lugano that handles birds.

What kind of bird do you have? Are you aware of the laws here concerning the keeping of large birds? (Kantonal approval, etc)

Re: Avian Vet recommendations?

We have two run-of-the-mlll male Solomon Island eclectuses. I'd hardly call them large, except in noise. ;-) In getting some info from the FVO, they mentioned possibly needing a 'detention certificate' but that I needed to check at with the Kanton. I'm not quite sure what that is but I sent an email today to one of the vets in Ticino that I believe is responsible. They also are not on the CITES list so I don't have to worry about that.

Re: Avian Vet recommendations?

You might be able to get the information you need concerning importing your birds by asking your nearest Swiss consulate. When I first came to Switzerland I brought my cat with me, a few months before departing I asked at the Swiss consulate in San Francisco exactly what I needed to do, they were very helpful and supplied me with all the information I needed to bring the cat to Zurich.

See the following link for all locations in the USA.
