How NOT To Feed your Parrot
Parrots for sale make wonderful pets – they are intelligent and beautiful at the same time, providing hours of entertainment for a family. However, if you are buying a parrot you should be aware of certain foods that will prove poisonous for it.
Do not feed your parrot anything high in fat, sugar or salt. Chocolate, alcohol, caffeine are all toxic to pet parrots, as are large amounts of onions and mushrooms (small amounts of these are fine).
Avocados are highly toxic to parrots and can cause cardiac problems.
Apricots, peaches and almonds can all cause severe, potentially fatal allergic reactions in parrots.
How can you tell if your parrot has been poisoned? Yellow, brown or black droppings are signs of internal bleeding. Discharge from the eyes is also a sign of poisoning. If you see any of these signs take your pet parrot to a veterinary practice as soon as possible.
