Meetings and Events


September 8, 2018 // 7pm: Dr. Nick Kirk, DVM, from Parrish Creek Veterinary Clinic

Our speaker will be Nick Kirk, DVM, from Parrish Creek Veterinary Clinic.  Dr. Kirk will discuss emergency bird care.

Dr. Nick Kirk grew up in the Nashville area and graduated from Belmont University in 2012 with a degree in Biology. He received his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Tennessee in 2016. During school, Dr. Kirk focused on avian medicine and has spoken and attended AAV conferences for 5 years. Since graduation, Dr. Kirk has worked in emergency medicine as well as continuing his work in avian medicine through private practice. Dr. Kirk’s interests include avian and exotic medicine, emergency medicine, surgery, and behavioral medicine. He shares his home with his fiance Mandi, an amazon parrot named Billy Rubin, two dogs Melody and Castiel, and their cat Pepper.

Dr. Kirk spent two years in an animal ER, so he is going to talk to us about bird emergency situations and what to do until you can get to the doctor. It should be very informative—please join us!
