When Should You Contact An Avian Vet?
Many species of pet birds have a long life span, and most people who have a companion bird expect a long-term, fulfilling relationship with their bird. A bird vet, tracking the health of your bird, may play a vital role in this goal.
Your bird vet can advise you on the characteristics of a number of pet bird species to help you decide which one would be most appropriate for you. An avian veterinarian will also teach you to recognise specific signs of disease that will help you select a healthy pet. Bird health is difficult to determine, and knowledge of how to identify a healthy bird is a valuable tool.
The appearance of symptoms of disease in a bird is often referred to as “sick-bird syndrome.” This is because many diseases in birds cause the same symptoms, and when a bird shows signs of sickness, the bird is very sick.
Avian birds, like other prey species, conceal symptoms of disease. Predators are searching for signs of sickness or weakness when choosing their prey, so a prey animal needs to appear well, or it would be a sure target. By the time they show symptoms of illness, in certain cases, birds have become too frail to be able to cover up. At this point, small birds, in particular, have little reserve, and even handling them can put them in shock. That is why it is extremely important for bird owners to know how to recognise a sick bird and to check their birds at least twice a day for the presence of these signs.
If you find any of the signs of a sick bird in the list below, please contact your veterinarian.
