Dr. Robert Giddings
"Birds Are Human Too"
Dr. Bob Giddings is a well known avian specialist and founder of the Kensington Bird and Animal Hospital.
Dr. Giddings, who earned his doctor of veterinary medicine from Cornell University, has had a lifelong fascination with birds. In 1988, after serving a general veterinary practice for years, he opened the Kensington hospital for "non-traditional" pets - anything other than dogs and cats. Although he treated reptiles and small mammals, his greatest interest lay in birds of all types.
In 1994, he became the first board-certified avian specialist in Connecticut. He retired in 2009, but still teches avian anatomy and physiology to veterinary students at Middlesex Community College.
