Parrot Health Care

An unwell parrot should always be taken to a vet. Separate the bird from other parrots, to avoid the disease spreading. Clean the cage thoroughly, using a pet-safe disinfectant, or a mixture of one part vinegar to two parts water.

There are a few simple ways to help the poorly parrot feel more comfortable during its illness:

  • Place it in a "recovery cage", in a familiar environment to minimize stress.

  • Make sure the room the cage is in is warm. In most cases, a disease will cause the parrot’s temperature to drop, and the last thing a poorly bird needs is a sudden chill. Infra-red lamps provide quick, safe heat, if heating the room is an issue; but note: these should only be used if you have already taken expert advice on how to use them and where to position them.

  • Make sure the recovery cage has fresh water, and some of the parrot’s favorite food.
