Caged birds require a warm, stable habitat . . . Thermo-Perch is the answer! The Thermo-Perch provides a gentle source of warmth that circulates through the bird's feet. Unlike heat lamps that can get too hot, dry out feathers, and cause sleeping disorders due to constant light, the Thermo-Perch provides safe, therapeutic warmth only when your bird needs it! Every Exotic Bird Should Have a Thermo-Perch! The Thermo-Perch solves the problem of providing consistent warmth for exotic birds in their cages, protecting them from the hazards and discomfort of air conditioning and cold drafts. Cold is a major contributor to health problems for exotic birds, and the first step that veterinarians turn to is providing warmth. Exotic birds have a body temperature that ranges between 104 - 106 degrees. The Thermo-Perch is thermostatically controlled to help them safely regulate their body temperature. This allows the bird to pick the spot that provides the warmth it needs. This safe, consistent source of warmth stabilizes the bird's environment and contributes to the bird's overall health and helps reduce avian stress. Made of scratch and bite resistant nontoxic plastic, the Thermo-Perch attaches easily to wire cages. The cord is protected with steel wire and is positioned away from the cage. Properly used, the Thermo-Perch will provides years of comfort for your bird. It is UL approved in both the US and Canada.
