How They Sanitize an Avian Vet Clinic

No, they don’t have to call the Ghostbusters because they’ve got their very own! Jose sprays Roccal-D 128 to sanitize the exam room and prepare it for another patient. Avian Vet clinics use an assortment of techniques to keep things clean and sanitary to prevent the spread of avian diseases to other patients.

Avian and Exotic Animal Clinic of Arizona has been cleared of bacteria, fungus and ghosts!

Doves chicks die in nest; How the parents reacted

FURTHER UPDATE (June 5, 2015): I received this message from John, a biologist. I think this answers most of your questions. Thanks John!!

“Goodpasture had the answer in hand when he examined the nest and saw the thousands of mites. Both rodents and birds that reuse their nests have a chronic problem of mite buildup that can be fatal to the young. Both scavenger and parasitic mites can rapidly increase in the warm nest in a short time. And as the nest is gradually increased over time, more mite survive over the unused time. Mites will develop on organic materials available from both adult and young feces, bits of food, nesting material that may include adult saliva used as an adhesive and young chicks. Mites are too small for the adults to see or remove even if they did. Towards the end of the video it appears that the male was viewing the remaining chick as it was swarming with mites,trying to figure out what was occurring. Naked chicks and rodents are fair game for rapidly developing mite populations. Keep in mind why there are bird baths and why adult birds dust themselves on the ground: removal of mites and other ectoparasites.
Those who provide platforms for nesting birds for pleasure or photography should remove the nesting material after the fledge and provide a small amount of similar material on the platform as an incentive for a return.
The world is beautiful as your photography records, but we know it also has many other dimensions that are not pleasant but very real. Now that you know I am hopeful that your (doves) fledge rate greatly increases. Thank you for letting me have a say.”

Thanks again to John. Feel free to comment but keep it clean, relevant and professional.

2014 UPDATE: Let me try to reply to some of the comments made. First, I don’t know WHY they died. I NEVER interfered with the birds. My best guess is disease. There were literally thousands of mites all over the nest. The lamp had nothing to do with their deaths. Before this, the doves had raised two successful broods. And AFTER, a pair of robins successfully raise four chicks. As for the music… get over it!! I wasn’t able to capture much sound so I used music as best I could to capture the mood and emotion of what’s happening. Finally, I’m kind of shocked a level of immaturity of people’s posts. Come on!! Keep it clean and relevant! One more thing: a LOT of people commented on the birds “stepping” on the young. I’ve noticed this throughout all of the different birds that have raised young. It doesn’t appear to injure the chicks, but I agree it does seem odd. I have many more hours of other bird activities. I just need to find the time to edit them down to the best and most interesting moments.

After raising two successful broods, a pair of mourning doves had their chicks unexpectedly die just days after hatching. I happened to get video the day before and after they hatched. A few days later when I noticed one had died, I set up the video camera to capture the aftermath and how the parents reacted. Truly fascinating view of the natural behavior of how the dove parents handled the situation.

Experimenting on Animals: Inside The Monkey Lab

VICE News gets rare access to Europe’s largest primate testing facility, the Biomedical Primate Research Center (BPRC) in the Netherlands, where scientists try to find cures for the worst human diseases, while claiming to provide unparalleled care for the monkeys in the hope they live the most animal friendly life before and during testing.

Once selected, inside the laboratories, monkeys are shaved, anesthetized, and experimented on for research purposes.

Yet the center remains controversial. Protestors gather regularly in front of its gates and there are calls in the Dutch parliament to close the site and switch to alternatives for testing on primates.

But as the BPRC explains to VICE News, modern science isn’t there yet. In the meantime, it still uses about 200 monkeys a year for a slew of experiments to find cures, and even replacements for primate testing in the future.

Miracle story! How a lost Cockatoo was reunited with his family after 2 years!

Found Cockatoo Story pt3 – Echo Reunited With His Owner

In this third and final episode of the found cockatoo story, the Rose Breasted Cockatoo that Ginger recovered from Queen Creek, Arizona is finally reunited with its rightful owner! Watch the whole story about how the owner was found, how it was determined that this bird in fact belongs to this person, and how “Echo” was returned home!

This male Rose Breasted Cockatoo was found on a cold rainy day in Arizona. The bird was terribly dehydrated and emaciated. Ginger bought a travel carrier and rushed the bird to the veterinarian. This Galah was in such bad shape that it had to be kept at the vet clinic for a week to be given fluids, food, and monitored. Soon, the parrot got better but the owner was not found. Many people called Ginger and said they had lost a Galah Cockatoo in the vicinity but for various reasons, many of them were either ruled out on the phone or in person. The bird did not recognize or show any reaction to the people that came to claim him.

The mother and her son came to see if this Galah was theirs. They were extremely optimistic. Their Cockatoo, Echo, flew out of an open window 2 years prior. Ginger was a bit skeptical that a parrot lost so long ago was found but she gave them an open minded chance. The moment they walked in through the door, the Cockatoo’s crest went partially up and its eyes perked up. It had never shown so much interest to anybody before.

The boy talked to the bird in the cage and it remained alert. It even walked up toward the bars. However, it would not step on his hand or take treats. The mother played music on her phone and talked to the Cockatoo and finally it came over and gave her kisses! Eventually it came out of the cage for the first time by itself and stepped up! It even went into the carrier they brought and was comfortable with the familiar cage! It was the bird that recognized and proved who the owner was! And so after 2 years of being lost, Echo was reunited with his family! Miracles do happen!

Ginger’s Parrot Rescue is a 501c3 non profit in Casa Grande, Arizona and specializes in Senegal Parrots and Cockatiels. Occasionally, the rescue will take in found birds and help reunite them with their rightful owners or adopt them out if the owner cannot be found. You can adopt, volunteer, or donate to Ginger’s Parrot Rescue:
