The most important components of most parrots’ diets are seeds, nuts, fruit, buds and other plant material. A few species sometimes eat animals and carrion, while the lories and lorikeets are specialised for feeding on floral nectar and soft fruits. Almost all parrots nest in tree hollows, and lay white eggs from which hatch altricial (helpless) young.

WILLIE THE PARROT SAVES BABYS’ LIFE  A parrot whose cries of alarm helped save the life of a choking girl has been hailed a hero and awarded the Red Cross’s Animal Lifesaver Award in Denver, Colorado, USA. As baby Hannah was choking on her breakfast, Willie the Parrot saw that she was turning blue so he caused a commotion by flapping his wings noisily while squawking, ‘Mama! Baby!’ Megan Howard, the babysitter heard his cries and was able to save Hannah’s life by applying the Heimlich maneuver.

A disease of captivity, FDB can be frustrating but with perseverance it can be broken.

eather picking or plucking (often called “Feather Destruction Behavior” or FDB) is a problem that plagues many of our companion parrots. It apparently does not affect wild parrots and seems to be a ‘disease of captivity.” It can exist to a wide spectrum of degree, and a bird can mildly overpreen feathers to a barely noticeable degree on one end, or at the worse a bird can completely yank out all feathers it can reach and maybe even start to chew on skin (which gets into a different set of issues but

possibly related). Many diseases and disorders have been found as the cause of FDB so this behavior can better be defined as a ‘symptom’ more as a problem itself. Dietary issues (deficiencies in many nutrients including vitamin A and calcium), infections (of both the skin and internal organs) agents can be a cause; metabolic and circulation issues (liver disease, cardiac disease, arteriosclerosis), hormonal and reproductive issues, and many more. There can be many behavioral (or “psychogenic”) causes too. It is hard to look at our sweet little parrot and think of her as a wild animal who is only several generations out of the wild. There are many things that we can offer our birds to try to replace a little of the wild that we have taken away when we have brought them into our homes.

Where Pets and People Intersect

My first job as health care provider for my patients with FDB is to make sure the physical causes are ruled out. A thorough history, a complete physical examination, a consultation and optimizing of the diet comprise the basic starting point. In addition, basic screening blood tests, xrays, and an assessment of the bacterial, fungal and parasitic components of the skin and possibly the digestive and respiratory tract are usually a good next step which either can be done at the same time as the first step, or can be staged somewhat later if something is revealed during the history-taking process that would be a likely cause of the FDB (such as “bird bath sprays” being used, a seed diet, tobacco smoke exposure, or insufficient plain water bathing). Whatever caused the discomfort which then led to the bird pulling out feathers may even dissipate, however, the contact of beak pulling out feathers will cause a physical reaction in the skin (inflammation, bruising, damage at a microscopic level) and thus propagate the cycle for a longer bout of FDB. While starting the discovery and diagnostic process, we usually try to control this ongoing process in some manner- sometimes using laser therapy, mild anti-inflammatory medications, painkillers, soothing topical medications, omega-3 fatty acids, antihistamines, and in rare cases a barrier like a bandage or a collar (usually only chosen if there is self-mutilation or severe trauma of emerging feathers which is leading to life-threatening hemorrhage.) Sometimes if the bird is exhibiting evidence of hormonal imbalance we will use medication

AVIAN • 27

to bring the hormones down while we give you instructions on how to limit the hormone activity with your bird. We can also optimize the environment we provide our birds to limit psychogenic causes. One of the first considerations is whether we give our birds enough to do in a directed manner. They like all animals and people, need a job to do. Give them an opportunity to look and work for foodwhether they have to chew through a few layers of paper to get to their breakfast, or figure out a puzzle to get a healthy treat. Trick training is another way a bird can work with their owner for food. Encouraging a lot of activity overall- flying if safe in the household; getting outside in sun and fresh air (not too hot!); lots of toys in the cage for general deconstruction; a play area that is not the cage. Cuddling and body-petting on a regular basis can lead to excessive hormonal surges which can lead to behavior problems in general, so keep that interaction limited. One of the most frustrating aspects of FDB is that often, it is actually a combination of factors that come together to cause a bird to tear their feathers out. It takes patience and persistence to work through all the possible causes; very rarely is there an easy, miraculous cure. If your bird is tearing it’s feathers out, we at The Bird & Exotic Hospital are happy to help you through the resolution process. Just call and set up your appointment.

OORS: Do not allow closed doors in any room. To get door opened, stand on hind legs and hammer with forepaws. Once door is opened, it is not necessary to use it. After you have ordered an “outside” door opened, stand halfway in and out and think about several things. This is particularly important during very cold weather, rain, snow, or mosquito season. Swinging doors are to be avoided at all costs.

CHAIRS and RUGS: If you have to throw up, get to a chair quickly. If you cannot manage in time, get to an Oriental rug. If there is no Oriental rug, shag is good. When throwing up on the carpet, make sure you back up so that it is as long as the human’s bare foot. BATHROOMS: Always accompany guests to the bathroom. It is not necessary to do anything -- just sit and stare.

HAMPERING: If one of your humans is engaged in some close activity and the other is idle, stay with the busy one. This is called “helping”, otherwise known as “hampering.” Following are the rules for “hampering”: a) When supervising cooking, sit just behind the left heel of the cook. You cannot be seen and thereby stand a better chance of being stepped on and then picked up and comforted. b) For book readers, get in close under the chin, between eyes and book, unless you can lie across the book itself. c) For paperwork, lie on the work in the most appropriate manner so as to obscure as much of the work or at least the most important part. Pretend to doze, but every so often reach out and slap the pen. The worker may try to distract you; ignore it. Remember, the aim is to hamper work. d) For people paying bills, keep in mind

Where Pets and People Intersect

the aim -- to hamper! First, sit on the paper being worked on. When dislodged, watch sadly from the side of the table. When activity proceeds nicely, roll around on the papers, scattering them to the best of your ability. After being removed for the second time, push pens, pencils, and erasers off the table, one at a time. WALKING: As often as possible, dart quickly and as close as possible in front of the human, especially on stairs, when they have something in their arms, in the dark, and when they first get up in the morning. This will help their coordination skills. PLAY: This is an important part of your life. Get enough sleep in the daytime so you are fresh for your nocturnal games. Below are listed several favorite cat games that you can play. It is important though to maintain one’s Dignity at all times. If you should have an accident during play, such as falling off a chair, immediately wash a part of your body as if to say “I MEANT to do that!” It fools those humans every time. cat games: “King of the Hill”: This game must be played with at least one other cat. The more, the merrier! One or both of the sleeping humans is Hill 303 which must be defended at all costs from the other cat(s). Anything goes. WARNING: Playing either of these games to excess will result in expulsion from the bed and possibly from the bedroom. Should the humans grow restless, immediately begin purring and cuddle up to them. TOYS: Any small item is a potential toy. If a human tries to confiscate it, this means that it is a Good Toy. Run with it under the bed. Look suitably outraged when the human grabs you and takes it away. Always watch where it is put so you can steal it later. Two reliable sources of toys


are dresser tops and wastebaskets. FOOD: In order to get the energy to sleep, play, and hamper, a cat must eat. Eating, however, is only half the fun. The other half is getting the food. Cats have two ways to obtain food: convincing a human you are starving to death and must be fed NOW; and hunting for it oneself. The following are guidelines for getting fed. a) When the humans are eating, make sure you leave the tip of your tail in their dishes when they are not looking. b) Never eat food from your own bowl if you can steal some from the table. c) Never drink from your own water bowl if a human’s glass is full enough to drink from. SLEEPING: As mentioned above, in order to have enough energy for playing, a cat must get plenty of sleep. It is generally not difficult to find a comfortable place to curl up. Any place a human likes to sit is good. If it’s in a sunbeam, so much the better. SCRATCHING POSTS: It is advised that cats use any scratching post the humans may provide. They are very protective of what they think is their property and will object strongly if they catch you sharpening your claws on it. Being sneaky and doing it when they aren’t around won’t help, as they are very observant. Sharpening your claws on a human is a definite no-no! HUMANS: Humans have three primary functions: to feed us, to play with and give attention to us, and to clean the litter box. It is important to maintain one’s Dignity when around humans so that they will not forget who is the master of the house. Humans need to know basic rules. They can be taught if you start early and are consistent. You will then have a smooth-running household.

BLACK LAB Anonymous


hey told me the big black Lab’s name was Reggie, as I looked at him lying in his pen. The shelter was clean, no-kill, and the people really friendly. I’d only been in the area for six months, but everywhere I went in the small college town, people were welcoming and open. Everyone waves when you pass them on the street. But something was still missing as I attempted to settle in to my new life here, and I thought a dog couldn’t hurt. Give me someone to talk to. And I had just seen Reggie’s advertisement on the local news. The shelter said they had received numerous calls right after, but they said the people who had come down to see him just didn’t look like “Lab people,” whatever that meant. They must’ve thought I did. But at first, I thought the shelter had

misjudged me in giving me Reggie and his things, which consisted of a dog pad, bag of toys almost all of which were brand new tennis balls, his dishes and a sealed letter from his previous owner. See, Reggie and I didn’t really hit it off when we got home. We struggled for two weeks (which is how long the shelter told me to give him to adjust to his new home). Maybe it was the fact that I was trying to adjust, too. Maybe we were too much alike. I saw the sealed envelope. I had completely forgotten about that. “Okay, Reggie,” I said out loud, “let’s see if your previous owner has any advice.”

To Whomever Gets My Dog: Well, I can’t say that I’m happy you’re reading this, a letter I told the shelter could only be opened by Reggie’s new owner. I’m not even happy writing it. He


Where Pets and People Intersect

knew something was different. So let me tell you about my Lab in the hopes that it will help you bond with him and he with you. First, he loves tennis balls. The more the merrier. Sometimes I think he’s part squirrel, the way he hoards them. He usually always has two in his mouth, and he tries to get a third in there. Hasn’t done it yet. Doesn’t matter where you throw them, he’ll bound after them, so be careful. Don’t do it by any roads. Next, commands. Reggie knows the obvious ones ---”sit,” “stay,” “come,” “heel.” He knows hand signals, too: He knows “ball” and “food” and “bone” and “treat” like nobody’s business. Feeding schedule: twice a day, regular store-bought stuff; the shelter has the brand. He’s up on his shots. Be forewarned: Reggie hates the vet. Good luck getting him in the car. I don’t know how he knows when it’s time to go to the vet, but he knows. Finally, give him some time. It’s only been Reggie and me for his whole life. He’s gone everywhere with me, so please include him on your daily car rides if you can. He sits well in the backseat, and he doesn’t bark or complain. He just loves to be around people, and me most especially. And that’s why I need to share one more bit of info with you...His name’s not Reggie. He’s a smart dog, he’ll get used to it and will respond to it, of that I have no doubt. But I just couldn’t bear to give them his real name. But if someone is reading this ... well it means that his new owner should know his real name. His real name is “Tank.” Because, that is

what I drive. I told the shelter that they couldn’t make “Reggie” available for adoption until they received word from my company commander. You see, my parents are gone, I have no siblings, no one I could’ve left Tank with .. and it was my only real request of the Army upon my deployment to Iraq, that they make one phone call to the shelter ... in the “event” ... to tell them that Tank could be put up for adoption. Luckily, my CO is a dog-guy, too, and he knew where my platoon was headed. He said he’d do it personally. And if you’re reading this, then he made good on his word. Tank has been my family for the last six years, almost as long as the Army has been my family. And now I hope and pray that you make him part of your family, too, and that he will adjust and come to love you the same way he loved me. All right, that’s enough. I deploy this evening and have to drop this letter off at the shelter. Maybe I’ll peek in on him and see if he finally got that third tennis ball in his mouth. Good luck with Tank. Give him a good home, and give him an extra kiss goodnight - every night - from me. Thank you, Paul Mallory I folded the letter and slipped it back in the envelope. Sure, I had heard of Paul Mallory, everyone in town knew him, even new people like me. Local kid, killed in Iraq a few months ago and posthumously earning the Silver Star when he gave his life to save three buddies. Flags had been at half-mast all summer. con’t on page 48

I leaned forward in my chair and rested my elbows on my knees, staring at the dog. “Hey, Tank,” I said quietly.

The dog’s head whipped up, his ears cocked and his eyes bright. “C’mere boy.” He was instantly on his feet, his nails clicking on the hardwood floor. He sat in front of me, his head tilted, searching for the name he hadn’t heard in months. “Tank,” I whispered. His tail swished. I kept whispering his name, over and over, and each time, his ears lowered, his eyes softened, and his posture relaxed as a wave of contentment just seemed to flood him. I stroked his ears, rubbed his shoulders, buried my face into his scruff and hugged him. “It’s me now, Tank, just you and me. Your old pal gave you to me.” Tank reached up and licked my cheek. “So whatdaya say we play some ball?” His ears perked again. “Yeah? Ball? You like that? Ball?” Tank tore from my hands and disappeared into the next room. And when he came back, he had three tennis balls in his mouth.

Look for a pet flotation device with a locator beacon or safety device that triggers an alarm when it gets wet. If your dog goes overboard, you will know right away. Be sure your dog wears ID tags on the boat and has a microchip with your current contact information. Train your dog to drink out of a sports bottle, which is easy to carry on a kayak, paddleboard, or canoe. NEVER hook your dog’s lead to the boat - this could be fatal if the boat sank or capsized. Attach one end to your dog’s harness or his PFD and the other to your waist, if necessary. A dog CAN get heatstroke in warn weather, which could be fatal. Look for heavy panting, lethargy, and drooling. If you see signs, wet your dog down with cool water (not cold), head for shore and shade, and call a veterinarian immediately.

Dogs are highly social animals and this similarity in their overall behavioral pattern accounts for their trainability, playfulness, and ability to fit into human households and social situations.

While we believe the organizations listed are creditable, please do your due diligence prior to working with them. Neither Pet Junction nor any of our affliates are responsible for the outcome of your interaction with them.

Bigger isn’t always better. Every town has their “name brand” shelter – the one everybody recognizes. What people may not realize is that there are also dozens of small local rescues working just as hard if not harder to save the lives of animals. Many of these rescues are self-funded and are saving hundreds of animals a year. A large portion of rescues will take dogs on the euthanasia list from local shelters and foster them until they find a permanent home. Foster-based rescues also have the added benefit of the dog being socialized in a home versus picking up behavior issues and potentially aggression associated with long periods of time living in a kennel in a shelter.
