Back-to-School Pet Care Tips

Back-to-school season is here! As you start to adjust your routine to fit your new school schedule, don’t forget about your pets! September can be a stressful time for birds who are adjusting to changes at home. Fortunately, there are things that you can do to ease the stress and keep your pet feeling loved. Here are a few tips to help make the transition a smooth one.

Back-to-School Tips:

  • Spend Time With Your Parrot - You don’t need to hold your parrot constantly, but make sure that they are spending time with you throughout the day.Consider having a movable perch that can be taken from room to room while you are getting ready in the morning.

  • Give Them Treats - Treats when you place them in the cage before heading out to school/work for the day can help your parrot feel loved and cared for.

  • Greet Your Pet - When you return for the day, remember to greet your pet!

  • Do Homework With Your Pet - Even homework can be completed with your bird perched nearby. Your pet will feel included in the activity.

Any changes to your typical household habits can affect your bird -- positive and negative. Make sure that the back-to-school transition is a smooth one this year!
