Most Common Avian Pet Issues & Disease


Avian pet diseases are something you may want to become familiar with if you intend on keeping parrots pets. Birds are susceptible to spreading diseases between members in the same habitat very quickly through feces and dead skin. Mothers spread viruses and bacteria to the egg.


Why there is such cause for concern with avian pet diseases

An avian pet can go from healthy to sick in a matter of a few days to a week. One of the most common avian health issues is Psittacine Beak and Feather Disease (PBFD). This disease has several bad symptoms including blood in the feathers, early shedding, broken feathers, and infection. There is no cure for this disease. Most pet owners have to quarantine the animal and be very thorough and strict about cleaning and sterilizing the habitat. Quick care by an expert is vital because these animals get ill so fast. Any questions or concerns are easy to address with a quick call to Long Island Bird & Exotics Veterinary Clinic.
