Managing stress, shows, sales, travel and trips to the vet
Stress is a normal, healthy reaction to unusual conditions. Birds are easily
stressed and the first response of any animal to stress is to reduce the
blood supply to the gut. If the stress is prolonged this can lead to poor
gut function. Stressed birds don't look good, don't sell well and don't Win
The secrets to avoiding stress are to increase the body's natural energy
stores (in the liver and muscles) and to provide electrolytes to maintain
the body's water balance.
To achieve this give Spark or Guardian Angel for two days
prior to travel. Continue during the event and for two days after.
