    bark is viewed as highly dodgy for chickens due to its habit of going mouldy underneath so I would think also unsuitable for aviary birds.

    Nelly Dog

    our lovely girl is gone. the anti seizure drugs worked well for 8 days, and then they did not. we were fortunate to find a vet who specialises in at home euthanasia who was kindness personified. Nelly had a very bad night Sunday, thankfully yesterday Monday had rallied and was happy again but...

    Wednesday 24th July

    thank you DizzyBlue. will get some . thats very helpful advice. I'm feeding her little and often as the heat is not helping (we are doing things to keep her cool) and I think a large meal would make her uncomfortable. her appetite is undiminished and aside from getting tired/panting very...

    Black Headed Caique Loosing Balance

    mark toys, food dishes etc with cage number so as each cage only ever gets its own equipment back. I do this as a matter of routine with poultry as have a number of pens and do not want any passing germs to have chance to spread . likewise each cage should have its own cleaning cloth/sponge...

    Black Headed Caique Loosing Balance

    would it alter how they are kept or medicated? if the answer is no then I can see no point in testing at present.

    Black Headed Caique Loosing Balance

    I would ask for a trial of the drug, say a week and see for yourself if helps or not. some things that are marked as ineffective are ineffective over a large number but odd patient responds well so worth a go.

    Neighbouring Shops Parrot Seems Unwell Advice Needed

    I would say that you can see they love and care for him very well but it is clear he is unwell and give them the number of a local avian vet. They may not be aware such a service is available. British muslims tend to cherish their pet birds , they are popular pets and highly valued. I have met...
