Larry the Cockatiel


We all know the saying ‘HAPPY AS LARRY’ and that is why one of our clients named their cockatiel Larry,  he is so happy all the time!


Larry’s favourite thing to do is to play with curtain shower rings and play with a ball.

He came to visit our nurse Caitriona at Palmerstown Veterinary Hospital to get his nails clipped.

Cockatiels spend most of their days on their feet so perches should be made from natural wood and in different sizes to maintain healthy feet.

Perches need to be cleaned every week as bacteria can build up and infect your cockatiels feet.

Apple trees make excellent perches as they are organic and free from any chemicals.

Make sure to get different size perches also!

We see all creatures great and small at Palmerstown Veterinary Hospital, so call us on 01 6237044 if you would like to make an appointment for your pet.
