  • The Checkup: Your bird gets a thorough physical exam to catch any red flags.

Sick Or Elderly Birds

If your bird is sick or elderly please consult with your avian vet as these birds often need medical care in addition to environmental management to help them feel as comfortable as possible.

The goal now is to get your bird healthy, comfortable and pain-free. Talk to your vet about whether your bird has the stamina to actually wear a bird collar. Heavy collars can add a lot of stress to an already stressed-out bird.

parrot self-mutilation


Parrot self-mutilation is when a parrot hurts itself by biting or picking at its skin or body parts. It happens more in some parrot types, like cockatoos and African Grey's.

If your parrot is into self-mutilation, it's a serious thing, and you need to team up with a vet and a behavior specialist.

Your vet checks for any health problems causing the behavior and helps treat wounds, while the behavior specialist figures out why it's happening and how to help your feathered friend stop hurting itself.

With both pros on your side, there's a better chance your parrot can get better and be a happy bird again.
