Bird Grooming 101

By Dr. Laurie Hess, Dipl ABVP (Avian Practice) When people hear about pet grooming, they typically think of shampooing, coat clipping and blow drying.

And that’s where you come in, Mr. and Ms. Pet Retailer—when Polly needs a sweet […] Read More →

Avian Amusements

What’s the surest cure for a bored bird? Something she can get her claws around, hook her beak into and stimulate her curiosity. A simple perch and mirror aren’t going to get it done; this tall task of providing a lasting pastime calls for a well-stocked product category that can be as fun to merchandise […] Read More →
