Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What's Wrong With My Bird?

A. Unfortunately, without physically taking your bird in hand, taking blood & fecal samples, and running lab tests, there is NO way for us or anyone else to tell you what's wrong with your bird. We cannot and will not guess. Guessing is not only unethical, it's dangerous. If you suspect your bird is sick, take it to your Avian Veterinarian immediately!

Q. Why Won't You Diagnose My Bird?

A. Again, without physically taking your bird in hand, taking blood & fecal samples, and running lab tests, there is NO way for us or anyone else to diagnose your bird. We are not  Veterinarians. Unlike some others, we will not make up an illness just to sell a product.

Q. How Should I Treat My Sick Bird?

A. You should NEVER treat a sick bird with any kind of medication without first knowing the exact reason the bird is sick. The ONLY way to do that is to take your bird to your Avian Veterinarian for lab tests. We cannot and will not even suggest medications without knowing what is actually wrong. Again, if you suspect your bird is sick, don't guess. Take it to your Avian Veterinarian immediately.

Q. You Helped My Friend With Their Sick Bird, Why Won't You Help Me?

A. In the past, we have been very free with our advice. Over time, we've come to realize that our advice was rarely followed, and if followed at all, was followed inconsistently at best. 

We've seen too many people misuse the advice we've offered by passing it on to others. When we give advice to one person, it does not mean it is the appropriate advice for someone else - even if the bird's symptoms are similar. Every bird is different. We tailor every suggested course of action to fit that bird's very specific needs. When we offer advice, it is never meant to be used for any other bird - even those in the same aviary. Therefore, to avoid misuse of our advice, we only assist our customers, and only under very specific circumstances.

Q. Why Do I Have To Be A Member To Read Your Articles?

A. In an effort to protect our intellectual property and how it is used, we now only allow access to our customers when they request membership. This will allow us to monitor access and prevent some of the abuses we've been seeing when folks misuse the information found here.
