Pet Birds by Lafeber Co.

How long has the doctor been working on birds? Ideally, he or she should have extensive experience working directly with birds. Does the veterinary office quarantine sick birds? Ideally, the office should have a separate area for ill birds. Sticker your glass and mirrors, or keep them dirty! Open Windows & Doors Many pet birds that fly away are never recovered. Some companion bird guardians choose to have their birds’ wing feathers clipped, and others choose to leave their birds flighted. You’ll often hear that birds hide the signs of illness until it’s too late, and the illness is either too far advanced to be cured, or the bird is belly up in the cage. Being Picked On By Cage Mates: Birds will pick on other birds that are ill, and may even kill the weakened one. Breeding birds takes more than just putting a nest in the cage with a pair of birds. Quarantine is traditionally a period of 40 days in which a new bird should be separated from other birds in order to make sure that the bird is healthy. Many deadly avian diseases are easily spread through the air or close contact, so it’s important to separate new birds from established birds. The bigger the bird, the less able a cat will be able to test the boundaries, so small birds are more in danger in a household with cats. Rats, Rabbits & Other Furry Critters: Most “Critters” aren’t dangerous to birds, but they do carry pasteurella bacteria, which is deadly to birds. Write your bird’s name and species, your phone number, and your veterinarian’s phone number in permanent ink on the bird’s carrier, and draw an arrow on each side to indicate which way is “Up.” Most birds are fairly calm inside the carrier, but some may panic. These days, most states require that all birds sold be “Closed banded,” meaning that a small, metal band is placed by the bird breeder onto the bird’s leg when the bird is just a few days old. Some breeders don’t do this, especially with smaller birds, but most do band their baby birds, especially if they intend to sell the birds to stores or to the general public.
