First Aid Kit List

Plastic critter carrier for hospital run, entirely enclosed with slits for respiration, will hold heat better than open bar or carrier options because to the material’s insulation properties.

Hot hand warmers. These non-toxic packets are good for up to 18 hours. They need to be carefully covered with heavy cloths as they do heat up. Shake them to activate (heat is typically required quickly in situations when there has been shock or blood loss) (a rubber glove filled with hot water and fastened securely will work also).

Make sure that your emergency kit contains a good number of large, white towels as well as plenty of fluffy, white washcloths. (We ask that you please practice toweling on your bird before bringing it to the veterinarian; remember to not hold them too tightly, speak softly to them, and provide them a treat; this will prepare them for handling by the veterinarian and make a difficult situation much less stressful).

Leave the top of this duffel bag open so that it may safely hold the carrier and allow you to put supplies.

Cornstarch, styptic powder, silver nitrate stick, and/or Quik stop can be used to staunch bleeding. Styptic and silver nitrate should only be applied to the beak and nails.

Basic bandages, gauze pads and gauze rolls, masking tape (won’t stick to birds’ feathers), vet wrap, blunt tip scissors, nail clippers, nail file, blunt end tweezers, pen light, eye dropper, syringes, cotton swabs, hydrogen peroxide, saline solution for eyes, basic bandages, gauze pads and gauze rolls, basic bandages, gauze pads and gauze rolls, basic bandages, gauze pads

For brief bursts of energy, try Pedialite or orange juice (check out ornalyte and others which are available to rehydrate quickly ). Additionally, using Pro Bac will give you more energy.
All of these supplies can be stored in a box of the tackle variety or a drawer of a moderate size…
You are able to be ready when every second counts!

When disease is FIRST suspected, all of our furry friends have the best chance of survival if they are transported immediately to a warm, dark, and quiet location in a carrier and then taken to a veterinarian or emergency facility.

Completely pull out the blood feathers, then either apply corn starch or fast stop in order to contain the bleeding…

Immediately seek veterinary attention if the bleeding does not stop, apply pressure to the wound to halt the bleeding, or bandage it tightly.

Do not freak out because your bird will feel your nervousness…handle your bird as little as possible…or hold the bird steadily in cupped hands…do not go in and out of the carrier checking on the bird and creating extra tension for the bird…

Keep in mind that even if it is sick, your bird still has a chance of escaping.

Always keep in mind that if you know your bird well, you will be able to tell when something is wrong with them… Don’t give it a second thought. Birds and other prey species are able to survive in the wild because they NEVER display signs of illness. By the time you notice exaggerated symptoms, it is usually too late to treat the condition.
