In any emergency situation, such as if your pet bird has sustained an injury or shows any sign of ill health, contact your avian veterinarian immediately. When a pet bird is ill, it often hides its sickness until it’s too late, so recognize and address the signs of illness as early as possible. Early recognition of disease in pet birds and parrots allows for more successful treatment and a quicker recovery. Use the BirdChannel Medical Conditions database to more accurately determine what your pet bird might be afflicted by to better inform your avian veterinarian. Some symptoms (or multiple symptoms) can be indicative of a bird disease — learn more in the Bird Diseases topiclist. For general bird care articles, click here.
You may need to provide emergency support bird care before you take your pet bird to the veterinarian, (e.g., providing treatment for a burn or a broken blood feather). Consult the BirdChannel Emergency Bird Care topiclist so you can be prepared before you are faced with an emergency situation involving your pet bird.
