Meet Shyam Patel, a very handsome 5 month old African Grey Parrot brought in today by his owner Kiran.
Shyam had his microchip and also a nail trim.
A microchip is a sterile device the size of a rice grain which contains an electronic identification code. This code is represented on an accompanying barcode label, the appearance and number of which is unique to your bird.
The nails of a bird grow continuously, as they do with other animals.
Overgrown nails can make perching difficult, as well as painful to owners who handle their birds frequently.
We are fortunate at Manor Vets to have an amazing team of committed, talented and enthusuastic staff.
