Re: Can you put nail polish on a parrot's nails?

Why! Why would you even think of doing that! Don't use nail polish remover, it will only make things worse.

Re: Can you put nail polish on a parrot's nails?

Putting nail polish on a bird's nails is comparable to painting my nails with, I don't know, arsenic or something equally deadly. Hopefully this is a lesson learned.

Re: Can you put nail polish on a parrot's nails?

I always have my own nails polished and even that is supposedly not great even for us as humans. A certain amount of the chemical is being absorbed. So, i wouldn't even use a pet nail polish on a bird. I never used it on my dog either, but with a bird, i would be 100 times more careful.

Re: Can you put nail polish on a parrot's nails?

I think the person stated they had done it before thinking about it. I am sure They can now see it was an error and we can help figure a way to remove it without hurting the bird. I am sure I would of thought of doing it on a larger bird just to be cute. Like we use a special polish on our female dog on groom days to make her look a bit more girlie. But yes I would of asked about it prior to doing it.

I would suggest filing it off or soaking it with warm water and trying to flake it off so the Fid doesn't chew it off.

Re: Can you put nail polish on a parrot's nails?

Actually, not even good for humans, so definitely not fids due to absorption and possibility of them eating it.

Re: Can you put nail polish on a parrot's nails?

I wouldn't even open a bottle around a bird. The fumes alone could be incredibly harmful or even fatal to them.
