All birds received by the rescue, cockatiel breed or larger, must visit an approved avian vet within 7 days of being placed with a foster. At STAR, we are committed to parrot health and wellness.
Our avian vets do a checkup of the new bird and will recommend further bloodwork or cultures as necessary. If a bird requires medication, STAR provides this to the foster to administer.
Our birds are also places on an automatic 30 day quarantine once with their foster. This helps prevent the spread of infection between birds and gives the foster time to complete the wellness vet visit.
Occasionally we’ll have a bird that requires surgery, extended medications or extended professional medical attention. We provide any necessary treatment required to make sure the bird is in good health.
