Tips From Our Vets
We all know how important clean water is to our bird but it isn't always easy to keep bacteria from growing in our birds water. Adding 1 tsp APPLE CIDER vinegar per liter of water can help keep it fresh.
Giving medication to a parrot can be tricky, some liquid medicines can be injected into a grape or orange segment or soaked into a small piece of bread to make them more readily taken by a bird. Another method that may work for your bird, and may be less stressful for him/her if it does: While your bird is inside the cage, hanging on the bars, facing you; put one hand in the cage and cover its back (you can use a small towel). Use the fingers of this hand to gently manipulate the bird's head and open its beak, if necessary. Use your other hand to administer the medication right through the cage bars. Be very careful not to squeeze the bird against the side of the cage. Of course you'll need to discuss the best way to give a medication with your vet.
