A55 Parrots are not Porcelain: Expect change, even encourage it - No matter what feathered companion you bring into your home, they will change. The worst thing you can possibly say about your new friend is: I LIKE THEM JUST THE WAY THEY ARE. Knowing that change is coming and working with it can make the difference between a happy home and a nightmare. https://www.spreaker.com/user/cockatude/a55-cockatude-parrots-are-not-porcelain A60 the public parrot: Your parrot is so well behaved! - Have you ever told a parent, "Your kids are so well behaved!" Most of us are shocked when we see children who are polite and courteous: kids that are not constantly asking for attention or some treat; kids that offer to share what they have with us. I hear these kind words about our Chloe Sanctuary flock all the time. I even hear it from our fans about our videos. What is so amazing about that is that this is the nature of parrots to be social. Once we learn how to work with these feathered wonders this kind of behavior becomes the norm. In this episode we talk about how to bring out the best qualities of your parrot in public. Whether it be in uncle Earnie's living room or at the Renaissance Faire, your parrot has the potential to cause others to say, "What a wonderfully behaved bird!" https://www.spreaker.com/user/cockatude/60-the-public-parrot
Note: This is NOT a definitive list of medical conditions and/or drugs!
Psittacosis - also known as parrot fever, and ornithosis — is a zoonotic infectious disease caused by a bacterium called Chlamydophila psittaci and contracted from infected parrots, such as macaws, cockatiels and budgerigars, and pigeons, sparrows, ducks, hens, gulls and many other species of bird. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psittacosis Psittacine beak and feather disease (PBFD) - a viral disease affecting all Old World and New World parrots. The causative virus–beak and feather disease virus (BFDV)—belongs to the taxonomic genus Circovirus, family Circoviridae. It attacks the feather follicles and the beak and claw matrices of the bird, causing progressive feather, claw and beak malformation and necrosis. In later stages of the disease, feather shaft constriction occurs, hampering development until eventually all feather growth stops. It occurs in an acutely fatal form and a chronic form. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psittacine_beak_and_feather_disease
Enrofloxacin (Baytril) - Antibiotic: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enrofloxacin It is a bactericidal agent. The bactericidal activity of enrofloxacin is concentration-dependent, with susceptible bacteria cell death occurring within 20–30 minutes of exposure.
Metoclopramide (Metomide) - A medication used mostly for stomach and esophageal problems. It is commonly used to treat and prevent nausea and vomiting, to help with emptying of the stomach in people with delayed stomach emptying, and to help with gastroesophageal reflux disease. It is also used to treat migraine headaches.
Deslorelin - Deslorelin acetate is an injectable gonadotropin releasing hormone super-agonist (GnRH agonist) also known as an LHRH agonist. Via its indirect action, following an initial surge the production of sex hormones (Androgenand Estrogen) tapers off.
