    I am creating this thread for those who are low on funds for vet care and are feeling helpless. There are things you can do that will help your bird without making matters worse.

    I am asking other members to please help me create this thread as a collection of home remedies that have worked for their birds.

    Please include information on the symptoms or diagnosis your bird had, the product you used with links if possible, the dosage you gave to your bird and how you administered it so that people who are in a panic trying to help their sick birds can get help fast. below are a couple things that have worked for my bird, Icarus a Meyers Parrot.

    My bird Icarus was experiencing the very first signs of an issue → Diarrhea with something that resembled sand in her pooh. She was otherwise "ok" however, the proof was in the pooh. Rather than wait I successfully used the following remedies and the results were pretty outstanding within just one day.

    aloe detox → 1/2 capful to a pint of water *** poop may change color temporarily *** I gave this to her in her morning water when they drink most and the rest of the day was just water (clean filtered water)
    this is a link to the exact brand of aloe detox that I used for Icarus as of 9/2017

    Liver and Kidneys...Just some FYI - Just Cockatiels!

    This is herb salad → I gave this to her in a separate dish, I left it available to her at all times. She used it to medicate herself choosing the herbs she needed. I was in awe watching her sift through it and furthermore impressed as she healed she sifted through less often. I learned never to underestimate their instincts to help themselves as they are not nearly as confused as we are ;) and Thank God for that ! It really helped her.

    If your bird is bleeding, you can use flour or cornstarch in stead of styptic powder to stop the bleeding! Just make sure if you're using flour that it's unbleached white flour! Press some on the spot that's bleeding, and put pressure on it for a few seconds. Should work like a charm!
