Everything is beautiful in its nature.

Owning and Caring for a Parrot
First of all, it is getting used to its new environment and feeding conditions. In addition, there are some disease-causing factors that have entered the parrot’s body during the breeding period but do not show clinical signs. They become active in their new environment, depending on the stress caused by changes in care and feeding conditions or the new social environment, and cause clinical signs.
Throughout their lives, people have succeeded in establishing beautiful relationships with the animals they live with, which they could not manage to establish among themselves. This situation has brought a new way of life called pet animals to the agenda. Pet animals have revealed social relations such as taking a place in the living space of people, protecting the place they have acquired, becoming superior and not wanting to share the attention. In addition, the fact that parrotscannot meet the requirements of their breed’s living conditions in the home environment has led to deterioration in some body functions.

- It is important to determine the place of the creature in the house and its social relations with other living things.
- The diseases brought by living things, the diseases they catch in their new environment, the transmission of diseases in living things to humans or diseases in humans to living things are other issues that need attention.
- It is important to establish a patient care unit suitable for the sick creature, to ensure that the sick creature receives appropriate treatment and to regain its health as soon as possible.
