Valentine’s Day is almost here -- which means that if you haven’t already, you need to start thinking about how to show your loved ones how much they mean to you each and every day. Don’t forget about your pets, too! Here are a few bird-friendly ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your feathered friends.
Pet-Friendly Valentine’s Day Treats:
Cut a strawberry in half for a bird-friendly treat that looks like it’s in the shape of a heart! Strawberries are perfectly safe for your parrot -- in fact, fresh fruits and vegetables are an important part of their diet.
Your bird needs treats that keep their toenails and beaks in good condition. Cuttlebones are the perfect way to keep your bird happy and healthy with proper levels of calcium and minerals.
Serve Up Some Veggies
Green leafy vegetables are a healthy way to supplement your pet’s diet. There is no better way to show your parrot how much you care than with foods that help them feel healthy! Serve some romaine lettuce, spinach, green beans, or kale to your pet this Valentine's Day.
It’s important to remember to keep other traditional Valentine’s Day treats (like chocolate and roses) away from your birds. These items can be toxic if consumed. You should also keep lit candles and toxic perfumes away from your feathered friends.
