Chicago veterinarian puts bleeding parrot on the mend

Description of pet care: "I took my parrot to Niles Animal Hospital because he pecked his wings, which caused bleeding."

Member Comments: "My parrot pecks his wings and I found a pool of blood in his cage this morning, so I panicked. Niles Animal Hospital had a cancellation, so they gave me an appointment the same morning.

"I didn't have to wait for a long time and they have the best avian veterinarians imaginable. [Dr. Peter Sakas] is great. They don't believe in collaring birds like other places I used to go to.

"They just cleaned up his wound and sent me home. They've taught me more things in the last three visits than the avian veterinarian I used to visit did, and I spent a fortune at that place.

Owners of nontraditional or exotic pets, such as birds, reptiles and pocket pets, have different needs than owners of cats and dogs, so they need special veterinary care.
