Re: Next-level bird first aid kit suggestions?

I would add baby hand rearing formula. This has saved me and my birds on several occasions. If a bird feels poorly, the first thing to stop is their digestive system and if one gets them through the first bad patch, you might end up with a dead bird, if you can't get the stomach going again.

The first thing I do if any of my birds look a little substandard- give them a little formula. This is easily absorbed nutrients and it also holds pro-biotics to help keep the gut going. Especially if the bird has been cooled, then warm formula is the trick to help it back up again.

I also have coconut water for rehydration (instead of pedialyte) and I also have papaya enzyme tablets and pro-biotics (zoolac) for smaller stomach upsets.
