    Vet Wrap Question

    Hi, I've noticed that some people use vet wrap on their perches. My guy has bad feet so I have always provided him with rope perches. However I want to include some natural perches that he can grip. I have a few questions about the wrap. Is any brand of it okay or is there a certain...

    Hello, I am new on this forum so I don't know if I'm doing stuff right but I am too distressed to read forum rules and tips and tricks so bear with me ❤️ I have a cockatiel, (s)he is soon to be 9 year old, had him for about 8 yrs.

    Urgent Hurt foot!! Again?!

    Last month, my birdie had a red mark on her foot, we took her to the vet and they said she got burnt. The vet said thankfully it wasn't bumblefoot.

    Bumble Foot Surgery

    My parrot had surgery for bumblefoot yesterday and is doing fine thankfully, he is now bandaged up and on pain meds and antibiotics. I was just wondering if anyone has experience with this and could tell me how long it usually takes to heal/how long the bandages will be on him? I asked my vet...
