Save the Date:  Feather Destructive Behavior in Psittacine Birds
Cockatoo Seibert Register now for this complimentary, interactive webinar presented by Lynne Seibert, DVM, MS, PhD, Dipl. American College of Veterinary Behaviorists.

Feather destructive behavior, also called pterotillomania, is one of the most common and frustrating behavior problems seen in captive psittacine birds. The disorder is characterized by feather removal, feather chewing, or self-inflicted trauma to soft tissue. 

Specific skills discussed in this web-based seminar will include tips on history taking and pertinent features of the physical examination. The majority of the lecture will focus on definition of feather damaging behavior, a discussion of the many possible etiologic factors, and management of the condition. The discussion on management will explore environmental modification techniques, occupational therapy, sensory substitution, training, medication, as well as alternative therapies.
