That's absolutely ridiculous. I have a cockatiel, a green cheek, a Quaker, a Senegal, 7 pet budgies, and 10 breeder budgies, and have had many other birds over the past 30 years, and I have clipped every one of their toenails myself. Most vets don't even put a bird under to do beaks if they don't have to. In fact, most avian vets avoid anaesthesia at all costs, the only time mine does it is for an x-ray where they have to and surgery...

Run away, please find a certified avian vet that knows what they're doing. Either your vet is not an avian vet and hasn't a clue about birds, or they are just trying to justify charging you more money for a simple nail clip.

That's stupid. They obviously don't know what they're doing. I trim my birds nails myself. My birds sit still on my finger and watch me trim the nails. I don't recommend doing it by yourself, and I don't recommend going back to that vet.
