Re: I need help FAST - ringneck parrot flew into incense oil

Another vote for washing birds that have come into contact with oily material. My little pocket parrot Max (rip) , got melted butter all over himself. Dawn , Dawn, Dawn. Mild soloution and keep it out of eyes and mout and nostrils. Then lots of rinsing. Repeat until no smell or oily stuff is present.

Re: I need help FAST - ringneck parrot flew into incense oil

Wonderful to hear that things seem to have turned out for the best. Although we usually have it at home, this makes me think that I should add a small bottle of Dawn to my emergency/first aid kit. Just in case.

Yes I became a member first but it still had to be approved by another member first. Not sure why ��

Re: I need help FAST - ringneck parrot flew into incense oil

And Yeah, I doubt I'll ever end up in this situation again because I'll be sure to remove any hazards in the future but I too will be getting myself a bottle of dawn soap to keep in the cupboard, I suppose you just never know what could happen in the future and I definitely want to be ready for it. Can anyone recommend any other things that would be a good idea to have on hand for any other types of accidents i may encounter? As I said I don't plan for any to happen but I want to be ready for anything after this scare. Thank you!

Edit; I have also been waiting for my local pet shop to get more bird harness' in stock for around about a month. They aren't a chain enterprise so i wanted to support them with my business rather than buy one online but now I feel As though I made the wrong decision by waiting. If I had him in a harness there would have been 0 chances of this happening but another reason I was waiting is because I wanted the right size, and to be able to return it same day for another size if I got the wrong size.

I have just opened my private messages on here and it seems that the automated system mistook my post for spam, hence why I was unable to have it shown on this site right away.. thanks again guys for everything I just cannot thank you all enough!

Sure thing. Good things to have on hand are:
1) gauze and pads
2) vet wrap (doesn't stick to the feathers)
3) corn starch or flour for stopping bleeding (some will advise styptic powder for the same purpose, but corn starch and flour do just as good a job and neither of those two burns your bird while doing it)
4) Pair of blunt-ended, sharp scissors
5) Needle nose pliers or forceps for emergency removal of blood feathers if necessary.
6) 1 hand towel and 1 full size towel (for handling and cushioning during transport, respectively)
7) Antiseptic wipes
8) Q-tips
9) Latex gloves
10) Syringes for medicating or delivering fluids
11) Nail clippers
12) Small flashlight with batteries
13) List of emergency phone numbers
14) Magnifying glass
15) Popsicle sticks (as makeshift splints if ABSOLUTELY necessary)
16) Hot water bottle (can be wrapped with the towel and kept by the bird to keep him/her warm.)
17) Clear storage bin to keep most of this stuff
18) Carrier or travel cage (Make sure to train your bird to go into the carrier/travel cage beforehand. Last thing you need with an injured bird is a pitched battle to get him/her squared away for the trip to the vet.)
19) Cover for the carrier (In case of cold weather between the car and the vet)

Also important are evacuation supplies. Dry, storable foods to be fed in case you can't make it to the store for fresh, and bottled water stored in darkness to prevent algae growth (to be changed out from time to time).

Yes, the automated system was a tad overzealous that day, so I had to approve this thread before it could be seen on the open forum. Sorry again for that delay.

Re: I need help FAST - ringneck parrot flew into incense oil

Thanks heaps for that list of supplies. I'm going out this afternoon so I'll take that with me and grab all the things I need!
Re the automated system; that's okay don't be sorry! I understand these things happen, I had a little trouble trying to sign up with the graphic that I had to write into the little box in letters not showing on my mobile and it took me several attempts and refreshing of the page so that may have been the reason why.
