We can help you take better care of your bird.
Help your parrot, cockatiel, songbird, or other winged friend live a healthier, longer life by receiving regular avian care. At Animal Ark Veterinary Hospital, we provide avian surgery and avian orthopedic solutions, as well as bird grooming services to our patients. In addition to regular health assessments and grooming assistance, our avian care specialists can also discuss safety, disease prevention, general care, breeding, and other care information related to your bird.
We suggest bringing your bird in for an initial appointment and then making appointments yearly at our office to make sure they are still healthy and don’t have any hidden signs of illness. Note that depending on your bird, we may recommend more frequent appointments. At every exam, we will assess your bird’s nails, feathers, and beak and determine if they need any other services or extra care.
In addition to regular appointments, you should bring your bird in for avian care if you notice any of the following signs:
- Sitting at the bottom of the cage
- Changes in eating or sleeping habits
- Difficulty breathing
- Abnormal droppings
It can be difficult to tell if your bird is ill, since most are good at hiding signs of sickness, so if you ever suspect something is off or simply doesn’t seem right, please call our office right away.
Offering compassionate, quality care for birds and other animals, our team at Animal Ark Veterinary Hospital looks forward to helping you take care of your bird. We serve the Elkin, North Carolina area, so give us a call today to set up your next appointment.
