Keeping your Bird Healthy

Birds, after cats and dogs, are the third most popular pet in the United States. Even though they are small and caged, birds still require a great deal of care and attention. They are complex creatures, and if you take good care of your own bird, you will have the opportunity to see what unique pets they are.

Here’s the fourth tip on how to keep your feathered friend happy and healthy in his life with your family.

Sick days

When birds are sick or injured, they will normally try to hide their illness. However, here are a few things to look for:

  • Closed or swollen eyes
  • Diarrhea; or fecal stains on the feathers surrounding the vent (anus)
  • Sitting in one place for extended periods of time during the daylight hours with feathers puffed out
  • Noisy or labored breathing, with wheezing or clicking sounds
  • Shivering

If you see any of these signs, please call your veterinarian immediately. Until you can get your bird to the vet, use a heat lamp placed near his cage to provide extra warmth. Be sure the bird cannot reach the lamp, and direct the heat so that the bird can move close to it or move away from the heat if he chooses.
