Hi all,

Our two year old eclectus parrot unexpectedly flew and landed on a burner on the stove that had been turned off, but was still pretty hot. I felt the burner myself aafterwards and it was pretty darn hot. She let out a yelp when she landed. My wife and I have looked at the bottom of her claws, and we do not see any signs of injury, although she was tapping her left claw for a little bit. She seems normal sitting on my wife. She is eating. she is not making any unusual sounds. This happened 10 minutes ago and I cannot see any signs of distress in her. She does not appear uncomforable on her claws, nor favoring one over the other anymore.

I will closely monitor her claws over the next 24 hours. If there is a sign of injury in the morning, I will take her to our avian vet.

Should I put her claws in cold water?

Any advice?

Thanks to all.

Jeb

i would keep a real good eye on her and if it was me id still have a vet check her feet any way just to be safe but you can add vitamin e or codliver on her feet to help sooth it some and it might give you a better veiw of her feet

Immediate first aid for burns is running cold water...after 10mins you can stop, till then the heat continues to burn. Never put oil on a burn, it keeps the heat in and lets it cause more harm. You are far better to put Aloe Vera on the area after the cold water treatment. I know money is hard to come by but I would your little mate to the avian vet asap, just to check on how severe the burn is.

Hi All,

I wanted to thank everyone again for their help and concern.

I had some internet problems and could not log on for a while.

Our ekkie is great. I think we were very fortunate that she was ok.

This is a great community!
