"An Ounce of Prevention"
The single most important factor in reducing the number of home emergencies with companion birds is to provide a balanced diet. Proper nutrition significantly reduces the medical attention required for feathers, skin, behavior, obesity, respiratory disorders, reproductive problems and some eye conditions.
Any new bird should be carefully evaluated before purchase, examined by a veterinarian, and quarantined in the home for at least 45 days before contact with existing birds. Initial preventative treatment may be needed, and periodic health checks by your veterinarian are recommended. Learn enough about your bird to provide a proper and safe enviroment.
Avoid: unsupervised freedom, sources of lead, zinc, oils and ointments, cigarette smoke, insecticides, contact with other animals and children, hazardous objects in and near the cage, flimsily constructed or improper toys, overheated non-stick-coated utensils and overuse of disinfectents.
