Veterinary Library

Because we are so isolated, reference material is essential for providing quality care for the birds. You can either order the book yourself, or send us a donation ear-marked for a certain book. The phone number for ordering follows each book. Your name will be written inside the cover to remind us of your generosity. Every book on the following list will be an excellent addition to our library.

Thank you!
