Avian Medicine in Esterhazy

When given routine veterinary treatment, budgies, cockatiels, parrots, and songbirds typically enjoy longer, healthier lives. We advise that you first bring your bird in for a checkup and then return once a year to make sure that he or she is still healthy and isn’t trying to hide any symptoms of disease. Some birds need to be seen more frequently. We will examine your bird’s beak, nails, and feathers to see if they need any treatment during the examination. Regular examinations can aid in the early detection of illnesses and other issues when treatment is typically simpler and less expensive. A bird that doesn’t properly groom itself will likely be ill if it has unruly, untidy, or missing feathers.

Changes in eating or resting patterns, respiratory problems, and unusual droppings are some further indicators that your bird may not be feeling well. Since birds are adept at masking symptoms of illness, call us as soon as you detect any strange behaviour in your bird or if something just doesn’t seem right.
