Safely Groom Your Birds Nails And Beak With A Sandy Perch
Just like any pet, your bird needs its nails groomed. But, its beak also grows like nails and it needs periodic grooming too. You can take your bird to an avian vet or a groomer about 4 times a year for these grooming tasks, but the bills add up to about $100 a year. Or you could groom nails and beaks yourself. However, you'd need special training to not injure your pet’s respiratory system, break a blood feather or traumatize your pet.
What if you could save your bird the trauma of manual grooming and pocket the money. Gee, how many bird toys would that $100 buy?
Well, you can eliminate a lot of grooming visits with Parrotopia Sandy Grooming Perches. We've used these perches with our birds since we learned about them in 2000. Parrotopia developed a proprietary sanded bonded agent that attaches to natural branch perches which literally grooms your bird’s nails. And, since birds rub their beak on a perch to clean it, you can strategically place a couple of these perches in the cage in your bird’s favorite places and let your bird do its own grooming.
Sandy Perches are really durable. Our grooming perches have lasted about 5 years - or in other words, saved about $500 in grooming bills. We place the perches in the dishwasher for a thorough cleaning. None of our birds have ever experienced abrasions on their foot pads like they have with inferior brands of grooming perches. We've even experimented and placed Sandy Perches on bird stands. Our birds seem to prefer the sanded surface. Please note, as a disclaimer, that we sell Sandy Perches, but this is a truthful review.
