    • Grooming Certs, for Other Pets?!

      If this is in the completly wrong area please feel free to move it anywhere you see fit :D:D

       

      I recently saw somthing I didn't even know exsisted. Bird Beak trims?!?! I was in awe, it was a terrifying to watch, yet completly nessisary thing that needed to be done on this bird, after watching the video. I decided I would reach out and ask. 

      What training qulifys you to do such a thing, and on the same note is there any training programs that you all know of to certify you in grooming other pets, such as rabbits, birds, lizards?? idk lol Id love to hear your thoughts :D

      I don't know if there's any official training for beak trims. I do know it takes a lot of skill. If the beak is not trimmed correctly, it can hinder their ability to eat. There is also a 'quick' like with nails and it can be very dangerous if the beak is trimmed too short. Birds become very weak very quickly when something causes bleeding.

      Nail trims on rabbits, lizards and birds are pretty basic, similar to trimming dog nails.  Rabbits do stress very easily, which is definitely bad for them. Lizards if tame are pretty easy, but watch those tails. They can slap but good with them.  A lot of people get their rabbits groomed. If you have a 4H in your area, you may be able to contact a breeder or show person to teach you about them.
