Took my Sun conure to the vet 2 days ago...

Now hes timid and shy... wont "step up" on my finger like he used to, doesn't shout back when I yell his name from another room like he used to and seems alot more shy than before we went in. This was his first visit since we got him. Hes 4 months old and seems happy. We had the vet clip his wings and cut his nails and a little beak trimming. Is he going to stay like this or is this a temporary thing?

Conure acting different after vet visit
by: Tracie

It should be a temporary thing, but if the bird is still like this tomorrow, call your avian vet and let them know in case they want to re-check the bird before the holiday weekend.

Birds have hollow bones that can be easily fractured or broken if a vet tech doesn't handle them properly. This is why going to an avian vet is so important, because you want those with the most experience to handle the bird, and a vet that has both training and experience with birds.
