At Specialized Care for Avian and Exotic Pets, we strive to keep bird owners knowledgeable and informed. Whether you have one bird or multiple birds, or you are new to being a bird parent, we have the resources you need. We have included various articles and resources on important topics concerning your birds. Whether you are looking for information on diet, diseases, vitamins, toxic metals, or other topics, take a look at the links below.
In addition to that, the team at our bird hospital, serving the Niagara Falls and Lockport, NY areas, have created care sheets for various types of birds. These detailed sheets include the bird's life span and average size, as well as:
- Wild History
- Physical Characteristics
- Normal Behavior & Interaction
- Housing & Environment
- Recommended Supplies
- Cage Maintenance
- Grooming & Hygiene
- Signs of a Healthy Bird
- Common Health Problems that Require an Avian Specialist
The information in these care sheets are just an overview and should not be used in substitution for veterinary care. If your bird needs help from an avian specialist, contact our bird hospital today!
Bird Care Sheets
These care sheets were developed for Pet Supplies Plus by our own Dawn Griffard and later modified by Dr. Laura Wade.
