Bird Worming & Vet Care - When to See a Vet

Birds are one pet that require little veterinary attention, unless they are ill.

Reasons why your bird might need to see a vet:

  • If you need their beak or nails trimmed and are not comfortable doing this yourself
  • If you require their wings to be clipped
  • If their beak is not closing properly, preventing them from eating normally
  • If your bird appears ill and requires attention

Bird worming and other health care considerations

You will need to worm your bird regularly. This is most commonly done via a liquid or gel worming supplement added to their water, approximately every three months.

A common condition in birds is scaly leg and face. As the name suggests, symptoms include a scaly film over your bird’s face and legs. You can find a treatment for this from PETstock, which is applied to the affected area with a cotton bud.

Birds may also suffer from mites and lice just like many other animals. There are a range of treatments available for this like sprays and powders, also available from PETstock.
