Backos Bird Clinic is an avian veterinary practice located in Deerfield Beach, FL. The practice is owned by Dr. Sam Backos, a Board-certified specialist in avian medicine. The clinic is available 24/7 for emergency services and has an in-house office lab, offering rapid diagnosis and treatment for critically ill birds.
Dr. Backos graduated in 1980 from Michigan State University with a degree in Veterinary Medicine. After earning his degree, he worked for the Maryland State lab for six years as a pathologist for the poultry industry. It was during this time that his interest in pet birds heightened and he moved to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida to open an exclusive exotic bird practice in 1986.
On January 17, 1995, Dr. Backos became a Diplomate of the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (ABVP) Avian Practice. As one of the few Board Certified Avian Practitioners in South Florida, his goal is to see that all his clients are informed and responsible pet owners, insuring the quality of life and longevity of each and every bird he cares for. In 1990, Dr. Backos moved the clinic to Deerfield Beach where he has continued to offer his quality care.
