Avian best friends come in many species and sizes and can live from 5 to 80 years! They can catch the common cold FROM us as well as share Psittacosis WITH us.

She will discuss normal Vitals as well as signs indicating various illnesses in your bird.

Certificate of class completion will be emailed as a pdf for printing upon successful completion (80% or above) of 30 question multiple choice/true-false test. Test Answers must be submitted to PetSafetyCrusader@gmail.com within 45 days of class registration to receive Certificate. If your score is lower than 80%, I’d be happy to set up a time to go over any questions you have before retaking the test which you may do once at no charge. After that, it will be an additional $15 fee to extend the videos to you for another 30 days and retest. Refunds are not available once links have been sent.
“Basic Bird First Aid” is a handy guide that will provide you with the 4-1-1 you need to know to help your avian friends. This book contains additional information and first aid care beyond the scope of the class so it is sure to become your go-to guide when your bird needs you most!
