Tips For Bathing Pet Birds

Pet birds benefit from being given a regular bath. Some birds enjoy bath time as much as others hate being in the water and given a bath. But regular baths are important for the bird’s health and wellbeing. Thus it’s very important for pet birds to get used to being given a bath on a regular basis, and this should start when they’re still very young so they will learn to tolerate it.

Here are some important tips to remember when bathing your feathered pet:

  • Use plain water when giving your pet bird a bath. Avoid soap or detergents as these products can strip off their natural body oils that keep their feathers shiny and healthy-looking.

  • Bathe your pet during the warmest part of the day because they can easily get chilled, which can increase their risks to the development of serious health problems.

  • Make sure that the water is not too hot or cold to avoid giving the bird’s system a shock.

  • Never allow the feathers to be completely saturated with water for this can easily lead to loss of body heat.
