Headline: Dealing with Illness in Your Pet Bird

Birds are beloved pets for many families, but it can be confusing to care for a bird properly when it is ill and requires medication. However, by keeping a few simple guidelines in mind, people can help to care for their pet birds and bring them back to health. Birds cannot be given pills in order to deliver medication, so bird owners need to handle their pets while providing the meds they need.

When it’s the first time you’re medicating a bird, you might be nervous or confused. Improperly administered medication can clog the bird’s nasal track, and the bird’s beak could damage a syringe. However, almost any bird owner can safely and effectively medicate a bird at home.

Discovering Bird Sickness

If you notice your pet bird is sick, take it promptly to the veterinarian’s office. In general, you should avoid choosing the medication yourself for your pet. A severe illness could have problems and complications of which you may be unaware, so it’s best to have your pet diagnosed and treated by a vet. The veterinarian will diagnose the illness and prescribe appropriate medication.

It’s best to ask the vet about how to give the medication to your bird. You can find out about the frequency, timing and dosage of the medicine to give each time as well as how to use the syringe to deliver it.

Preparing to Administer Bird Medicine

In order to get ready to actually administer the medicine, shake it before use and follow your vet’s instruction. Next, use the syringe to draw some of the medication inside so that you are ready to administer to it. This syringe should not have a needle attack. Check the side of the syringe to make sure that the right dose is prepared. If you see any bubbles of air in the syringe, flick it in order to remove them.

Giving Your Bird Medication

The first time that you medicate your bird, you are likely to find it challenging. The more that you go through the process, the more comfortable you will find it, especially as you grow to understand what best suits your bird. In general, birds do not like to receive medication and may seek repeatedly to escape.

First, choose a comfortable location without large obstacles that could cause problems when feeding the bird or if the bird should thrash around. Next, wrap the bird in a towel to calm it and to provide a more secure hold. As you wrap your pet, make sure that it is gently wrapped and that its claws do not snag in the towel’s weave. You do not want to restrict the bird’s ability to breathe.

Next, use your fingers to manipulate and open the bird’s beak. Hold the syringe on its left side, pointed in a rightward direction toward the bird’s throat. Only the very tip of the syringe should enter the mouth of the bird. Finally, inject the medicine. If the bird drinks it freely, continue injecting until all the bird medicine has been administered. If it does not, go slowly and take breaks until the bird completes the dosage. Make sure that the full dosage is administered, but avoid feeding too quickly.

Caring For Your Bird After Medication

After delivering the medication to your bird, wipe it down using a warm soft cloth with water. Wipe the bird’s feathers and beak. Comfort the bird, letting it relax and spending time with it. You may want to provide your bird a treat.

No pet owner relishes the task of delivering medicine to a bird. However, when you take care to protect your bird, make sure it swallows the medication and avoid delivering the medication too abruptly or suddenly, you can avoid problems and nurse your bird back to health.

How to have the fun with your pets at the studio

Does your pet lover kids want to play the trumpet

My husband and I were scared when we bought our Summer Babe her baritone last Christmas. It is one of her Christmas wish list. Baritone is very expensive especially the kind and her music teacher suggested as well. She said that she wants to play the trumpet instead of the baritone. We told ourselves that we were screwed. Great thing that she still plays the baritone in her band.

How to keep your pets safe during the winter

Winter is not here yet officially. Western New York already feels the effect of winter. Yesterday we had a snow storm. The temperature is really dropping abruptly. It was so cold yesterday and the wind chill is bone chilling. Yet we still need to let our fury girls out. Though they both loved to play the snow, we need to protect them.

 photo Molly in sweater_zpsk5qthvoh.jpg
Molly, our Rat Terrier, is so tiny. She needs to wear a sweater to keep her warm up while doing her thing outside. She also has a winter coat. This is her today while I take her out. I cannot believe she found a tick. She is a very playful tiny puppy. I make sure she does not stay longer outside and will bring her in the house to warm up by the fireplace.
