Hi, Will – I currently work at the Center for Avian and Exotic Medicine in NYC (Upper West Side) and we board birds. However, you will need to come in for a physical exam as well as have a few tests conducted (for a pionus, I believe it is Chlamydia and PBFD) before you board. I understand you had a bad experience, but this is done to ensure only healthy birds are sharing the same airspace and not spreading any diseases. I don't know what vet you went to before, but CAEM is the only exclusively avian and exotic animal hospital in all of NYC and there's even an avian-board certified vet on staff. I've been bringing my own birds here for over a decade!
