How often does my bird need to see the vet?
As a general rule, you should bring your pet bird to the vet once per year.
Unlike your furry feline and canine friends, birds tend to hide underlying illness or disease until they are far advanced. This will only serve as a hindrance to your vet in treating your pet or preventing further damage.
To help avoid all this, it’s best to follow advice and simply take your bird for a visit annually. A wellness check up will also ensure your pet is in good health in all areas.
When should I bring my pet bird to the vet?
Any change in your bird’s behavior, eating habits, or voice should be a sign that your pet may be in need of an examination.
Because birds do not easily display signs of discomfort or disease, once you notice any changes in any of those areas, whether big or small, a trip to the vet should be your top decision.
It’s also important to note that there are some diseases in birds that may be passed on to humans. A complete examination should be scheduled for taking in new pets, as it’s potential exposure to the wild might mean your bird can bring in unwanted health issues into your home.
How can I prepare my pet bird for a vet visit?
When taking your bird for a trip to the vet, it’s important to ensure your pet’s comfort by travelling with it in its cage.
Add some warm towels surrounding the cage and talk to your bird to console him/her.
Not only will your pet be comfortable, but the doctor will also be able to check the cage for unnoticeable symptoms of disease. Some illnesses in birds can only be determined with the cage at present, and those include zinc toxicity, nutritional disorders, and territorial behaviors, among others.
