Barbara's Pet Tips #2


Bird Mites - Have you noticed a strange scaly or flaky appearance on your birds nostrils and legs....or is your bird itching more than usual?  If so, your bird may have mites.  There are two types of mites that may be affecting your bird.  The first mite is most common in parakeets and canaries.  It is called scaly face mites.  You generally will not be able to see these mites because they are burrowed under the skin.  However, if you look closely at the affected area, you may notice the burrowing tunnels. 


The other type of bird mite is the red mite.  These are not easily seen either because they generally feed on the bird's blood at night.  When the bird awakens, they hide in cracks and crevices.  If you suspect red mites, try leaving a white paper at the bottom of the cage and surprise them at night with a flash light (don't frighten your bird).



The best and quickest way to treat these mites is get a diagnosis from your vet and to give ivermectin medication orally or by injection about every 7-10 days until cleared up.  It is important to get a series of treatments to kill any hatching eggs and larvae.

Our bird specialist can help you with any bird problems or questions.  Come visit our bird section to see our quality bird foods, cages and supplies.

Barbara's Pet Tips #1


Territorial Fish 

Fish are territorial and have a vested interest in a particular piece of plant, decoration or space in the aquarium.  To combat this problem, try rearranging all the plants and decorations.   When adding new fish, try taking everyone out, add the new fish first then the old fish and, finally, rearrange or add new decorations to the aquarium.  It's amazing how the old fish are suddenly so preoccupied establishing new territories, they don't even notice the new fish :)

Parakeet Video

Parakeets make a great first pet for children over the age of 5.  Their cheerful nature and playful antics make a great addition to any family.  Parakeets can learn to mimic sounds and some can say a few words such as hello.  

The video below shows a parakeet's active and playful nature.

We always have a great selection of Parakeets.  Our staff can can help you with all of your bird needs.  For information on how to care for parakeets, please visit our Parakeet Care Sheet.
