Did you know...?
Budgies, canaries and cockatiels can live 15 - 25 years and larger parrots such as cockatoos can live 40 - 80 years.
Since birds can live a long time we want to help them have happy and fulfilled lives by providing good nutrition, love and a stimulating environment.
Our Bird Facts and Care Sheets aim to provide quality information on nutrition, care, disease and first aid.
The information sheets are part of a long-standing service provided to vets and which are now available to you online! They are also used in our practice to supply information to our clients on bird care.
