My Umbrella Cockatoo has seasonal bird allergies symptoms and has had to take a few rounds of antibiotics each year. This procedure is stressful for the bird and sets off a series of gastric distress symptoms. I have found a way to treat my birds' allergies that have significantly decreased the frequency of having to take antibiotic treatments. This is my bird care tip.
I get the nasal saline from my local drug store or Wal-Mart, per his recommendation. How do you get a couple of sprays down a birds' nostrils? Well, you don't. You've got to out smart your bird! Here's how I help my bird with his allergies.
This has definitely lessened the frequency of antibiotics he takes.
Lily does not like syringes or anything foreign coming at him to give him - - - meds etc... He wants to bite it! Or, he thinks it is HIS toy! He does not mind my fingers at all.
I've learned that "Trust Comes with Patience & Time," so I suggest that you just work patiently with your bird and you will be amazed at what it allow you to do to help it.
PLEASE NOTE: Always check with your Avian Vetbefore trying ANY medical procedure. Also note that similar to using a Medipot, sterilized solutions and sanitation are critical.
Stay tuned to find out how making sure your birds diet contains adequate Vitamin A will help prevent symptoms of Sinusitis and allergies.
