Cars are just as dangerous for your birds as they are for you and your family. Buckle them up in the back seat! Never leave them unattended!
Cars pose significant dangers to parrots. A bird should be put into a travel carrier and be seat belted in the backseat. In case of a car accident, it is important to take the bird to an avian vet for a check up even if they appear fine. Other dangers include car emissions can release pollutants into the air, which can harm parrots’ respiratory systems and lead to immediate health issues. Use the recycle option to keep the outside air out while traveling behind a particularly pollutant car or truck. Remember to get all car fragrances out of the car before traveling and allow the car to air out as they are very dangerous to parrots. Don’t leave them in the car without temperature control.
