    When i am cutting toenails on Rocky i keep a little dish of white unbleached flour near by in case of bleeding. my cousin is a Vet and she use that in her service for minor bleeding with pressure. she told me to never use a styptic powder or pencil, because it can cause irratation to a fid's mouth if they chew on it.

    in your birdie first aid kit you should keep a toilet paper tube for little birds and gift paper (wrap) tube for bigger birds, to make a quick collar to keep the bird from picking at a ouchie until you can get them to the vet.

    With all the current parrot ouchies lately I want boot this to the top of the stickies list again. I can't say it enough, please put a parrot first aid kit together, a Clotting agent, gauze, vet wrap cut into strips, scissors, readers if you need them, vets after hours phone number, nearest ER vet phone number.

    I agree , People with many birds should have an incubator and oxygen supply.
