Studies have shown that people who own a tropical fish
are calmer and suffer from less ill health than those who don't. Dogs
and cats are also known to have therapeutic benefits. Stroking a dog or
cat has been proven to provide a calming effect on the brain. But the
simple observation that watching fish makes people calmer and healthier
is also backed up by studies. A freshwater or a tropical fish tank
brings an increase in health and wellness and gazing at these kinds of aquariums is peaceful and relaxing.
I don’t know any one who started out wanting anything less than a loving home for their bird. However, because they didn’t know all they needed to know about caring for their bird, mistakes were made, and their bird suffered as a result.
Even with all the information available to us, we still don’t know all there is to know about having birds as pets. It’s a continuous discovery and mistakes will be made. If you find yourself making some of the mistakes discussed below, forgive yourself. Do the research, learn what you need to know and change it.
Seldom could anyone think of acquiring a bird pet except that of having a parrot as one, because parrots have been favored and popular among other bird pets. You see and observe the beautiful multi-colored talking parrot of your neighbor.
Like other pets, your bird can get sick but unlike other pets your birds illness can become serious, even life-threatening, very quickly. If your bird is acting even the slightest bit ill you should get him to your veterinarian right away since birds can go downhill very fast.
