Have you ever had to give your parrot oral medication? Did this mean grabbing and restraining your parrot twice a day for several weeks? No doubt this was very unpleasant for both you and your parrot. Some parrots are so traumatized by the experience they no longer trust their caregivers. To help your parrot bounce back from this difficult experience or to avoid it in the first place you can use positive reinforcement to train your parrot to accept oral medications voluntarily. You can turn taking medication into a behavior your parrot is eager to present.
