    Re: untamed bird at the vet

    Dan, if it's an experienced avian vet, they will likely towel him (wrap him in a towel). It can be pretty stressful, but necessary for a proper exam. My birds are all tame and the vet towelled them, too.

    Re: untamed bird at the vet

    One thing to consider is to be sure the carrier isn't too large, as they can flap around and hurt themselves. Have a soft ravel-free towel on the bottom, and bring along his favorite treat. Cover the carrier with a towel if he is not used to riding in the car. Avian vets should be used to handling all kinds of birds. Just let the vet know this before he/she starts the exam.
