From Quora

 

Chloe Sanctuary and Dr. Jenkins are injecting our birds with a poison called Haldol – all they are doing is “doping” the animals – I’ve spoken to Chloe and reached out to Dr. Jenkins.

 

Neither one talks about diet, lighting, foraging, and enrichment.

 

Have you ever had a conversation with your vet?

 

Nutrition (based diet)are we looking at the possibility of food allergies? Are we eating too many seeds?

 

Nutrition (chops) – If you are feeding your bird chop you may be starving your bird?

 

Habitat (cage) – does the birdcage offer a private area? Are there foraging/enrichment opportunities in and atop the cage?

 

Habitat (home) – does your bird have a place to be with you within the home so he or she is not eating furniture?

 

Why Are Veterinarians Are Injecting This Poison Into Our Birds?

 

Habitat (Lighting) – is your bird getting 12 hours of light and 12 hours of darkness or are you relying on North American ever-changing light cycles to thoroughly confuse and cripple your bird’s circadian clock?

 

Habitat (change) – are we rearranging our bird’s cages at least every 30 days causing them to rethink their entire environment and distracting them from things like plucking their own feathers?

 

Habitat (flock) – What are the interpersonal relationships between your bird and other members of the family including other pets?

 

 

Bird (interpersonal)- is there an issue between your bird and other human flock members? Did you recently move a piece of furniture or picture on the wall (yes that can be a plucking trigger?

 

Is Using An Anti Psychotropic Drug A Good Feather Plucking Solution?

 

Bird (physiological)

 

Clean – are we exposing our birds to any sort of bathing and/or misting – do they have bacterial infections in their mouth from drinking poop water?

 

We have cured feather plucking and prolific egg layers using light alone for years.

 

A technique taught to us by Dr. Gregory Harrison the founder of Harrison bird foods.

 

We also work closely with Home – Hari who has a close relationship with Home | Ontario Veterinary College – both have helped us focus on a holistic approach to pet bird care.

 

 

Watching the head exploding video – every parrot cage I see has ZERO toys – they are BORED SO THEY PLUCK (one trigger)

 

We have dozens of customers that thoroughly regretted Haldol treatments because it turns birds into zombies.

 

It is NOT approved as a veterinary medication much like Lupron.

 

Haloperidol is a medication that works in the brain to treat schizophrenia. Read more about Haloperidol (Haldol) | NAMI: National Alliance on Mental Illness

 

I’m too agitated to keep writing.
