Many pets hate going to the vet, and Max the Cockatoo is no exception. When he sees his carrier he knows it’s time for a visit and he gets pretty vocal about it.
“For a little bird, he does have some big attitude,” says his human. “He is just a dramatic boy, he is happy and healthy. He is only saying his own bird words, I can only imagine what they mean.” Although his human doesn’t know exactly what Max is saying he guesses, “It almost sounds like ‘I don’t wanna’ but I have never taught him those words, but he could have put them together himself. He is very smart.”
Thankfully, Max’s vet visits are short and are very good for him to keep healthy. And, it turns out, that Max really doesn’t mind going. “Max just likes to be in control. He likes the vet and his attention,” his human explains. “He just doesn’t like being made to go.”
