Getting A Second Opinion- Chickens Part 2

Barring an emergency, it’s rarely a bad idea to get a second opinion, especially if your veterinarian is recommending euthanasia without being open to exploring further diagnostics or treatment options.  As previously stated, asking your veterinarian to consult with another veterinarian can be a useful option if you know of a vet who has experience you want your veterinarian to know about. However, if that is not possible, or you have already exhausted that option, you may choose to get a second opinion.

When getting a second opinion, be sure to share the chicken’s medical record, including all diagnostic results and health examination findings.
