    Emergency Treatment for Overheated Birds 

    Most of our companion birds are acclimated to inside air-conditioning systems. High temperatures can therefore be deadly to birds. If you take your bird outside, be sure to keep them out of direct sunlight. If you travel with them in your car, NEVER leave them unattended. Overheating can also be brought from excessive supplemental heat (by a heat source that is set too high, such as a heating pad or a lamp). Some conditions, such as obesity, can cause a bird to pant and have difficulty cooling themselves off. Your vet will be able to evaluate your bird to ensure he or she is maintaining the proper weight for its age, size and species.
