We at Bird Vet Melbourne believe that providing enrichment for birds is essential in enhancing their quality of life. Birds are intelligent and require a lot of mental stimulation, which can be provided with a variety of toys, playtime and training. Boredom can have a huge impact on the health and welfare of pet birds, and cause stress and frustration for both birds and their owners, particularly if pets are left alone for long periods.
Our hospital stocks a variety of bird toys and other items that have been specifically selected to provide excellent toys and enrichment for birds of different species. Talk to any of our Avian Nurses or Bird vet staff members about which may be suitable for your bird and other ways of enriching your pet bird’s life.
Alternatively, you can check out our online store. We have a wide range of bird safe toys and items for your other pets that can be shipped right to your door.
