When to Seek Avian Services: Ensuring Optimal Health for Your Bird

New Bird Introduction

If you have recently acquired a new bird, schedule an initial veterinary examination. This visit will include a thorough health check, disease screening, and guidance on proper care and diet. This initial visit is vital for establishing a baseline of health and preventing the spread of diseases to other birds in your home.

Behavioral Changes

Birds often mask their illnesses, so any changes in behavior, such as lethargy, reduced vocalization, or increased aggression, should prompt a veterinary visit. Unusual behaviors can indicate underlying health issues that require professional attention.


Accidents can happen, and birds are susceptible to injuries such as broken wings, beak damage, or cuts. Any visible injury, regardless of severity, warrants immediate veterinary care to prevent complications and ensure proper healing.
