Exotic Patient of the Week
We love seeing exotics at Olathe Animal Hospital, and Sunny is a perfect example of why! He’s a Sun Conure, which is a species of parrot, and he’s just about 1 year old. He visited us recently for a wellness exam, and we also drew blood for a wellness blood profile. Because birds are so good at hiding signs of illness, routine blood work at a time of health can be critical in helping us veterinarians have a comparison of “what’s normal for this bird” at a time of illness.
