If you want to watch your bird go immediately bananas for a toy, you've got to get him a Bird Kabob... but what I am really saying is you need to put this item in your bird budget, because he'll want a steady diet of these messy shredders made from the yucca tree.
DIY grooming saves money, but can also enhance your relationship with your pet. Do it daily, gently (always working in the direction of the hair growth!), reward your pet, and make grooming fun for your pet. There will still be times you want to take your pet to the groomer for nail trimming and ear cleaning... and a good haircut. But you can reduce those visits by half, if you can manage their fur 'issues.'
