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.
