    Urgent Cockatiel tail bobbing and red spots in poop (blood?)

    I've already been to numerous vets around the area, none could help because they can't run any tests except x-rays which shows no problem.

    How to bring new bird to the vet?

    I got a couple cockatiels a while back, and need to bring them to the vet. However, neither of them trust me enough to go in the carrier.

    Hello! So 9 days ago I got my two budgies. The pet shop I got them from offered me a free vet consultation, so the next day I went to the vet and she told me that they are healthy (just that my female budgie is missing her tail, but it's nothing to worry about, cause its going to grow back).
