HARRISON’S IS THE BEST DEFENSE AGAINST IMPROPER NUTRITION
Improper nutrition is the cause of 90% of health problems and the leading cause of death in pet birds.
It involves all of the systems of the body and is seen as: abnormalities in body weight and shape; unusual appearances of feathers, nails, beaks and skin; undesirable behavior; and disturbances in all the body's systems. Nutritional deficiencies appear to accelerate the aging process of birds, primarily through the loss of moisture and tissue elasticity.
Often, the signs of improper nutrition in pet birds go completely overlooked by the owner.
The value of a proper diet over the life of the bird is monumental. Birds fed a poor diet will become malnourished, which will start a chain of events leading to a decline in the bird's overall health. The digestive system suffers first. The bacterial population of the digestive tract becomes unbalanced.
Once this has occurred, opportunistic pathogens find it easier to invade, and gram-negative rods and yeast counts increase. This opens the door for bacterial infections and other ailments related to the immune system.
Over time every part of the body will reflect the condition of the bird's health. If the bird reaches the latter stages of malnutrition, damage to internal organs may be so severe that it is too late to save the bird. All of this can easily be avoided if you choose to commit to the health of your bird by feeding a high quality, nutritional diet and maintaining an ongoing relationship with an avian veterinarian.
Any change in your bird's eating habits, behavior or personality could be due to illness; it is important to discuss these changes with your veterinarian. Your bird's health may depend on it.
Improper nutrition in the early stages often shows no signs at all. But if it is allowed to continue, you will start seeing the following:
Skin: dryness, flaking, long nails and overgrown beaks
Respiratory system: sinusitis, sneezing, liths in the nose, air sacculitis, aspergillosis
Digestive system: enteritis, hepatitis (shows up as dark green-colored droppings), pancreatitis (diarrhea or not eating, no droppings)
Reproductive system: egg binding, infertility, weak chicks, chronic egg laying
Behavioral abnormalities: feather picking, screaming, biting, aggression
