Emergency First Aid Information for Your Pet Bird - Be Prepared!
Be Prepared! Emergency First Aid
If your bird has an emergency ... such as, an injury or poisoning your veterinarian may recommend emergency first aid before you transport your pet to the medical clinic. You'll be safer rather than sorry if you have the items in the list below in your emergency first aid kit so they are available if your vet instructs an emergency procedure. Alternatively, you may prefer to purchase a First Aid Kit For Birds that includes a good selection of supplies. We also suggest the Avian First Aid DVD, the first comprehensive DVD about first aid for pet birds.
AVIAN FIRST AID SUPPLIES
Travel Carrier - Be sure to have a Travel Carrier in the appropriate size for your bird. Travel carriers are necessary for transporting your bird safely to a veterinarian's office. Many offices do not allow pets to be brought inside the clinic unless they are contained. This is for the patient's protection as well as other pets that may be visiting the clinic. Travel carriers are also essential to have on hand in case of fire, earthquake or floods. They are also ideal for recreational traveling.
First Aid Kit - It is recommended to keep the following items on hand that may prove essential in an emergency. You might rather choose to purchase the "First Aid Kit for Birds" which contains a basic selection of supplies to assist in a medical emergency.
1" gauze tape
Metal nail file
Hemostats or Tweezers
12cc curved tip syringes
Net for catching birds (in the event your bird is not tame or easily handled)
