    Although a useful book on parrot illnesses, it was a great shame and disappointment that the book was all in black and white. there were no colour pictures or photographs. once again a real disappointment!

    If you own a pet parrot this book is indispensible in helping you understand the signs of health and knowing what to watch for if you think something may be wrong. Knowing something is wrong is the key – Birds will try to hide any illness until they feel so bad they can’t help but show it. Knowing what to watch for can save a beloved companion’s life. This book stays on my current reading shelf.

    An excellent book. Gives you an insight to what a vet would look for. An excellent companion to “My parrot, my friend”.

    When my scarlet macaw needed surgery, this book helped alleviate the concerns I had about the process. The communication between owner and avian vet is enhanced by the information presented by Ms. Doane. This is one of my favorite books in my bird-related library.

    There have been so many advances in avian medicine over the years that it’s hard to keep up. This book is a valuable guide for all parrot lovers, and owners, who want to know the latest in avian medicine. In these eight chapters Doane covers in great detail everything you need to know to better take care of your companion parrot. There are chapters on picking an Avian Veterinarian, knowing the signs of a Well Bird and a Sick Bird, using proper first aid in the event of accidents, disease problems, avian surgery and there’s even a chapter on dealing with the loss when a bird dies.

    This is the first in a series of books authored by Bonnie Doane, and it is excellent. It is a must that you have this in your personal library. There is also an excellent glossary included, and appendix on medications. Be sure to check out her other books, “My Parrot, My Friend”, and “The Pleasure of Their Company.” Highly Recommended!!!
