Parrot lost foot.

by Alia Rodríguez

My neighbor's parrot injured one of his feet while playing with a toy. The veterinarian had to amputate the foot.
Now my neighbor is wondering if she needs to adapt the floor of the parrot's cage, to make it easier for him.

Please, any recommendation that could help to make the parrot more comfortable is very welcome.

I would not think she needs to adapt the cage floor, there are many parrots with one foot that get around fine.

She can also provide some Sqwatter Platform Perches for perching and a Bird Tent for sleeping in at night.

Please have her discuss this with her avian vet since they know and understand the case better.
