Pet birds provide wonderful companionship, fun and enjoyment for many people. Like any other pet, birds benefit greatly from regular health care and assessments. Establishing a relationship a veterinarian that regularly sees birds early in the ownership with your new bird will prove invaluable in many ways. Getting important baseline information such as weight, a general physical assessment, diet history and the cage environment will allow your veterinarian to make appropriate health care and nutrition recommendations. A vast majority of pet birds are surviving on inadequate diets and early corrections can prevent many health problems and heartache later on. Birds are prey species and as such are very good at hiding health problems from their owners…so much so that by the time people realize their bird is ill it may be very far into its disease. For pet birds an ounce of prevention can be worth many pounds of cure!
