Questions & Answers

My Quaker just bit 2 of my budgies, I put neosporin on the wound. Will they be okay? How can I stop this in the future?

The birds that were bitten require examination by an experienced avian veterinarian as soon as possible. Topical antibiotic ointment is insufficient to treat bacterial infection often associated with penetrating bite wounds.  Also, bite wounds are painful and your birds likely need pain medications.

The birds should be caged separately and if you let them out of the cages, let them out at separate times.  Consider wing trimming to keep your pets in one place.

Please contact us if you have any questions or to set up a check up for your birds.
