Birds + Care & Wellness + English

  • Veterinary care seems expensive. Here are some of the reasons behind the costs of veterinary care, and some things that you, as a pet owner, can do to help make it affordable.

  • In the spring and summer, it is not unusual to encounter a baby bird on the ground. The immediate response of a kind-hearted human is to take the little “orphan” home and then try to figure out what to do with it.

  • The purpose for clipping a bird’s wings is not to prevent flight completely but to ensure the bird is unable to achieve or sustain upward flight and to prevent escape, unwanted roaming and exposure to dangerous situations. It is not desirable to produce a bird that will free fall and potentially cause harm to itself.
