common health problems for lovebirds
by: Linda

All parrot species have pretty much the same general health problems usually related to an infection that has gone undiagnosed/untreated or a poor all seed diet. Do your homework about what a parrot is supposed to eat, namely organic pellets which are wholesome and have no pesticide/fertilizer residue, dyes or preservatives that will hurt your bird.

Parrots need a well balanced diet to produce good skin, feathers and bone, and they need safe roomy cages with safe natural wood perches, fresh clean water and lights above cage that are full spectrum. Light coming through windows will not even support a flowering plant very well, so it will not support exotic animals and birds at all.

As for illnesses common to any species, I don't know of any with the Lovebird except living in homes where only the very minimum is provided in the way of food, shelter, light and water and medical services.
