Transporting Birds

When transporting birds to the veterinarian, there are a few tips to consider.

  1. The clinician will need to evaluate the last couple of day’s droppings, so if you are bringing the bird in a different cage, bring the papers from the bottom of the usual cage.
  2. Make sure the transport cage has the appropriate size perch and food. Water normally just spills so only put in when not in the car.
  3. Transport enclosure can be covered with a towel to keep the bird calmer.
  4. In cooler temperatures, below 18 Celsius, the vehicle should be warmed prior to transport.
  5. The bird should be kept in the transport container in the waiting room for safety reasons and also because a lot of people are very nervous of birds.
