September 18 - Join The Parrot Club on Sunday September 18 at 6 pm ET/3 pm ET for a talk by avian vet Dr. Stephanie Lamb on Liver Disease in Pet Birds and Liver Nutraceuticals.

Liver diseases are common in companion birds unfortunately.  Many parrot companions have had or will have birds that suffer from liver disease at one point or another.  We welcome back Dr. Lamb to talk to us about common liver disorders, including fatty liver syndrome, liver infections, toxins, and cancer.  She will discuss which testing your vet may recommend as well as possible treatments.  Dr. Lamb will also discuss common nutraceuticals used for the liver including milk thistle/Silymarin and dandelion, among others.  Given how common liver disease is in companion birds, this is a very important talk to attend!

Stephanie Lamb, DVM, DABVP (Avian Practice), received her veterinary degree from the University of Minnesota in 2010.  She became a boarded specialist for birds in 2014 through the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners and has worked exclusively with birds and other exotics in Connecticut, California, and, currently, Arizona.  She has volunteered her time with many humane societies, parrot and rabbit rescue groups, wildlife centers, and raptor rehabilitation facilities.  Dr. Lamb has written several scientific articles and spoken about avian and exotic medicine at various bird and exotic pet clubs and at both local and national veterinary conferences.  She is a frequent speaker for Lafeber.

A self-proclaimed “bird-nut,” Dr. Lamb grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada, with various companion animals of her own. From an early age she knew she wanted to work with all types of animals, providing them with great medical care and individualized attention. She always had a strong pull toward working with those species who were less conventional, but it was her hand-tame zebra finch, Leonardo Da Finci, who opened up her heart and mind to the amazing companionship that a tiny life can provide for a human. It was because of him that she became encouraged to devote her attention to seeing that birds and other exotics were receiving the best care and a happy, loving life that they deserved.  She and her husband share their home with a dog, gecko, rabbit, and seven birds.  Dr. Lamb is currently Medical Director for Arizona Exotic Animal Hospital.
