Belize Animal Welfare

Belize Veterinary & Animal Welfare


The only emergency vet in the country is the Animal Medical Centre in Belize City.
While there are no certified avian vets in Belize, Dr. Isabelle at BWRC has years of experience working with birds. You may also be lucky and catch a visiting avian vet at Belize Bird Rescue. Otherwise, Dr. Sheila in Corozal and the AMC in Belize city have some avian experience.
Dr. Sheila in Corozal, has to be the lowest price vet in the country, yet she is as skilled as they come. Watch out though, she doesn’t mince her words!
