Birds

We see many species of birds here at Nanango Country Veterinary Services for a wide variety of issues.   Birds are very skilled at masking any illness and often give no signs until they are quite unwell.   For this reason, it is important to schedule regular preventative health consult bring your bird into the vet the moment it starts to show signs of illness.

Some signs that your bird might be unwell include:

  • ‘Fluffed’ or huddled appearance
  • Sleepiness
  • Quietness or loss of voice
  • Vomiting or regurgitation
  • Changes in droppings – more watery, diarrhoea, changes in colour
  • Increased breathing effort
  • Swellings or wounds
  • Not using wings or legs properly
  • Abnormally long beak
