Q: Do birds need to see a veterinarian?


A: Yes, birds do need to see a veterinarian on a regular basis. Your veterinarian can examine your bird to make sure there are no signs of disease. Sometimes, just keeping track of your bird’s weight can be an indicator that something may be wrong. Also, checking your bird for parasites and abnormal bacterias is essential to maintain their health. At the time of your veterinary visit you can ask any questions that you have about diet and husbandry for your bird. Your veterinarian will be part of the team to help keep your pet bird happy and healthy.
