How can your other pets be harmful to your cockatiel?

Other pets can be harmful to your cockatiel’s health, too. A curious cat could claw or bite your bird, a dog could step on him accidentally or bite him, or another, larger bird could break his leg or rip off his upper mandible with his beak. If your cockatiel tangles with another pet in your home, contact your avian veterinarian immediately because emergency treatment may be required to save your cockatiel’s life.
