A bird such as a budgie, canary or parakeet can make a very rewarding pet, but because they are designed for flight, you do need to take special care to look after them properly. They need as much space as possible, plus toys and lots of attention to keep them stimulated. Food and drink are important too, but as each species has different requirements, contact Vets4Pets for advice.
Sadly, not having fur doesn’t mean our birds can escape the problem of parasites. Birds can suffer from a whole host of different parasites and knowing the signs and how to stop an infestation fast can have a huge impact on the outcome of a parasite invasion. Follow our handy links below to take a closer look at the parasites that can be a problem for your bird.
