AviCalm Calming Supplement

AviCalm Calming Supplement

Has anyone tried this? Iago is aggressive toward anyone besides my mom and I and I was wondering if this would help calm him down around strangers.

Re: AviCalm Calming Supplement

Lack of scientific evidence that the product actually works as claimed. ERGO snake oil.

I feel the same way about "Plucks no more" and other magic stops plucking elixers.

I have found that they don't work very well, if at all, and are very pricey...

Just my opinion, and I am an opinionated a$$hole sometimes...

So maybe this is just me spouting off.

Hope it works for you. I'd like to be proved wrong.

Re: AviCalm Calming Supplement

How often do you shower this bird?

Also the 100% pure aloe, rubbed on his feet/legs, might help. Sometimes it's just dried skin, and increasing bathing, and aloe after bathing helps...

at 1/10th the cost of the magic elixirs that often do nothing...

Re: AviCalm Calming Supplement

No.

There is a product that is 100% pure aloe vera gel. (No additives.) You can probably find it at the local Wal-mart, or any health food store.

Just curious why you said to use aloe vera gel and not aloe from an aloe vera plant?
