Bird Obesity Prevention Guide

By: Anushka Jha

 Check your bird's diet is rich in nutrients and low in fats. Incorporate fresh fruits, vegetables, and high-quality pellets.


Boost physical activity through interactive toys, perches of varying heights, and ample flying space to keep your bird active.


 Monitor serving sizes to prevent overeating. Consult with a vet to determine the appropriate amount of food for your bird's breed and size.

 Portion Control

 Engage your bird's mind with puzzle toys, foraging activities, and social interaction to prevent boredom and emotional eating.

 Mental Stimulation

Schedule routine check-ups with an avian veterinarian to monitor your bird's weight, health, and discuss any concerns or dietary adjustments.

 Regular Vet Visits

 Limit fatty treats such as seeds, nuts, and processed snacks, opting instead for healthier alternatives like whole grains or small portions of fruits.

 Avoid High-Fat Treats

Make sure your bird has access to clean, fresh water at all times to support digestion, metabolism, and overall well-being.
