Like Father, Like Son

At a very young age, Henk de Weerd accompanied his father Piet on visits to top fanciers all over the world, whereby his fascination for pigeons was fed. It is no surprise that Henk also grew to be a great devotee of pigeons. After completing
his veterinary studies, he became specialized in the medical guidance of racing pigeons.

Dr. Henk de Weerd has been active as a veterinary doctor specialized in the medical and athletic support of homing pigeons since 1972. He is one of the leading veterinaries in the field of homing pigeons, based on his personal history, knowledge, and experience. He travelled around the world to share his knowledge, just like his father did. Currently, a team of specialists, all of whom benefited from Henk’s knowledge and many years of experience, are available at the pigeon clinic in Breda to provide advice to fanciers around the world about achieving the best health and condition for their pigeons.

Advice is not limited to medical issues, but also touches on racing systems, feed, loft installations, mating and selection. Advice is not only dispensed at the clinic in Breda, but also at subsidiaries in Ransdaal (the Netherlands), Colchester (United Kingdom) and Beijing (China). In addition, connections are made by telephone, email and social media. The result is that more than 100.000 fanciers in more than 40 countries rely on the knowledge and expertise of Dr. Henk de Weerd and his team at the Pigeon Clinic in Breda. Their goal is to support all fanciers, from hobbyists to professionals, not only with medical advice, but also to help achieve their goals in the pigeon racing sport.

Henk de Weerd is not only a leading veterinary doctor, but also a pioneer in the development of specialized medical and complementary products for pigeons, marketed under brand name Belgica de Weerd.
