Pet Birds and Safe Toys
That rope toy your bird loves? It could be a major health risk to your feathered buddy! NOT all toys are safe and many can actually lead to either a serious injury or death. Contact the Vetafarm team for more info! www.vetafarm.com.au
I know a lot of people have rope perches, or toys with cotton threads, but it isn’t wise. I heard from an avian vet nurse about having to operate on birds because they have swallowed threads and they’ve become like a fur ball. This avian nurse’s own parrot had to have his crop cut open to remove a ball of coconut fibres.
Unfortunately too many bird toys are not bird safe.
Get rid of anything with loose fibres or threads.
