The aloe plant releases a sap/liquid that helps promote wound healing, but it is not critical to the bird's recovery. Check to see if you can find a product called Neosporin cream.....it comes in tubes, both as a cream and as an ointment.....the cream can be rubbed into the skin of an open wound while the ointment is petroleum based and is better suited to keep moisture out of a wound while providing the same antibiotics to the wound.....asking at a pharmacy or health clinic might get you the name of a product that is available locally, if Neosporin is not available.....

Since it sounds like your IRN just received a scrape/slight wound, watching it to be sure it does not get infected may be the best thing, because it sounds like the bird was very lucky.....

Your bird will remember this encounter with the fan, but you need to be very careful about its flying around ceiling fans.....if it were to get scared or excited and fly off, while the fan is running, it might not remember as quickly.....

You might want to feed less liquid fruits, and a scrambled or hard boiled egg would be good for him, then back to his regular diet, I think.....

Ok u will apply neosporin today . Will it harm my bird if he licks or eat the medicine because I have mentioned he touches his toes n leg with beak that was the reason for my not applying the ointment at the first place. I am so tensed atm. Do you think he will be able to walk again? Yes you are right he is lucky he is so dear to me. I cant tell u how much pain I have been through all these days.

While the ointment version will not kill a bird, I believe it will give it runny poop.....with the cream, you rub it into the skin or cover it with a bandage, but your feathered friend does not sound like it needs any bandages.....the cream well promote healing while keeping the injury moist and not dried out.....some birds will pick at drying injuries because the skin develops a scab/dried blood and it often bothers birds and they pick at drying injuries.....

The Neosporin has a mild pain reliever in it also.....just be gentle when rubbibg it into the injury.....

I suggest a vet visit. I have found a few links that may help you to find an avian vet near you, yes you are correct there aren't many in your country. A regular vet may have to do in this case. I hope this is helpful to you and your birdie, and I hope he feels better soon.

I don't think parrots get fevers, and someone please correct me if I'm wrong. Their natural temperature is much warmer than a humans. If he walked over to you he's probably a little better. I know it's hard to find an avian vet in Pakistan, if not impossible. If you can't find a vet, than at least find someone with some experience with parrots. Is he standing on that leg yet?
