Hello Doc

Can you please advise me on a vet that spesialises in African Grey parrots in the Gauteng region- my problem is that it seems that my parrot of three years suffers from mild stress and gets quite agitated when near other people , we live in a quiet neighbourhood and I cannot understand why this is happening- there is no feather plucking etc but can a mild sedative be prescribed to alleviate this problem ?

Please phone the SAVA in Pretoria, tel 012 346-1150 and ask them for a list of names of vets in your area that specialise in birds. The veterinarian on this forum that helps to answer questions on birds and exotic animals is also in your area and will definitely be able to help.
