Hi Talk Cockatiels! :)

Is anyone here from Boston, Cambridge, Somerville, etc?

I just moved here with my bird, and I need somewhere to get his nails clipped. Also, I'd like to line up a vet who I can use if there's ever an emergency.

Thanks so much, everybody! :)

I found a list of vets in the MA area. :)

You can also narrow down your search to a closer city in the link below. It may show more vets in that area then. I just did a basic state-wide search. :)

As for nail clippings, vets do nail clippings as well as some stores. I would go with the vet option as unless you find a specialized place... they may do a poor job. Vets are usually very skilled at nail trims, especially avian ones. :)

When I find Kiwi's nails getting long I use a towel and some nail clippers. I have to have someone hold her while I clip though. xD

Dear Kiwi's guardian,

Thank you so much! That was EXACTLY what I needed. :)

I probably should learn to clip his nails myself but I'm just too nervous. Maybe one day I will do it!

I really appreciate the help. I will go to one of the vets on that list--it shows two right close to me!
