Bird Chewing Feet
Parrot foot / leg chewing, needs veterinary support to reduce infection and crippling effects. A thick tube collar or a stiff plastic collar is warranted. Please consider the following:
✔ Foot / leg chewing may become a compulsive habit. Leave the collar on until wounds are completely healed.
✔ Combine a restrictive tube collar with pain medications and infection control in cooperation. Inspect wounds daily.
✔ Consider a hospital cage if bird is having trouble perching. Assist your parrot in eating and drinking, as needed. Clean and lower perches. Line cage floor with thick towels to prevent injury and infection. Keep bird warm and clean.
