dc.description.abstractFDB is a behavioural disease complicated to diagnose and with multiple aetiologies. Several factors should be analysed in details for each patient in order to establish a treatment plan. A correction of the parrot's environment is often necessary and behaviour modification training sessions are strongly advised as they reinforce the owner-parrot relationship and permit the owner to redirect inappropriate behaviours. Restraint devices should be used only in severe cases associated with soft-tissue mutilation. Psychoactive drugs must be carefully chosen and administered. The veterinarian should always have the informed consent of the owner due to the potential risks of these drugs in birds. (Lynne M. Seibert, 2006) The treatment chances of success will depend on the owner' s motivation and patience and on how long the behaviour has been existing. The more recent, the more chance to heal. An old case might however decrease dramatically after a proper treatment. (Liz Wilson, 2005) To conclude, prevention of FDB mainly go through a good housing of th parrot and a proper behaviour of the owner.en
