Do you have a feathered friend sharing the holidays with you? If so, here are some tips to ensure a safe holiday for your bird:
- Birds are susceptible to many toxins, especially fumes in the air. This includes holiday-scented candles, potpourris, and air freshener sprays. If inhaled by your bird, any of these substances could be hazardous.
- The most dangerous place for your bird’s cage is the family kitchen. Dangers include inappropriate foods, harmful fumes, and if your bird is out of its cage, open water in the sink or hot pots on the stove pose a deadly risk.
With a little vigilance, your bird can “sing” along with you and yours for a happy holiday season.
