Birds require a special touch when providing veterinary services or care at home.

Birds are highly unique creatures and require a special touch when providing veterinary services or care at home. Not many veterinarians in the Howard Beach, Ozone Park, or Richmond Hill areas will see birds, but we are blessed to have an avian veterinarian here at Veterinary Care Unlimited. If your feathery pal needs wellness care, diet and nutrition advice, or has developed an illness, please contact us.

Signs of Illness in Birds

Birds mask illness in an attempt to hide from predators, so it can be challenging to detect issues in your feathered friend.

The key to early detection of illness and successful treatment is to learn to recognize problematic signs. Signs of illness or disease in birds can include:

Closed or swollen eyes

Nasal discharge

Diarrhea

Sitting in one place for extended periods of time with feathers puffed out

Noisy or labored breathing, with wheezing or clicking sounds, tail bob associated with breathing

Scaling or crusting of the face or feet

Weakness, limping, wing droop

Lethargy

Regurgitation

Sitting at bottom of cage

Keep a close eye out for subtle changes in your bird’s health. At the first clue of an underlying problem, contact us immediately for veterinary care.
