Re: Please hope someone gets them

Idk how well it is for birds, but a lot of people use listerine for other animals (and lots of other things) such as reptiles. It is perfectly safe for them, cleans them of germs, helps heal wounds, prevents/kills mites, ect. I've been meaning to ask if anyone uses it for birds. Well on cages really not so much birds...

Re: Please hope someone gets them

I don't, but I have seen and heard it recommended before, even for pluckers.

It's like using bleach in a birds water or using bleach to wash their vegetables with.

I can't see using either of them myself and would worry that it would cause more harm than good.



Hopefully, the birds have already found new homes!

Re: Please hope someone gets them

Like I said idk if it's ok or not but it's definitely not comparable to bleach because all the active ingredients are all herbal essential oils.

Re: Please hope someone gets them

Tricky thing is, you want to save the birds, but you don't want to support her so she continues to buy/breed more birds.
Bit of a catch-22.

If they're really poorly treated, maybe authorities can get involved? I don't know what laws are like in Ohio.

I know what you mean. I am involved with animal rescue and it is so hard to walk out of a bad breeder's home or a mill without wanting to take one with you, but it only opens the cage for another and sends the message they can sell so they get more. It is such a vicious cycle. I did it once, paid $900 to get a sick dog out of a bad situation. I do not regret it, but would never do it again. Breeders prey on this and that is what keeps them in business. That dog I mentioned, well ten years later, she is still selling even with a cease and desist. See what I mean, just keeps them in business and the laws do not do enough to protect animals. Very sad.
