|Hi Athena, Mac & Remy
How are u sweetie? I'm excited to begin my campaign on birdie first aid! First, I would like to give a big THANK YOU to Momma Deb, my darling Casey's mom, for making all the awesome campaign pics for me! I couldn't have done it without her!
I will start with a basic first aid kit, which is helpful to have if an emergency occurs. Mom keeps mine in a 19 at storage container w/ lid.
*IMPORTANT PHONE #s-ur vet, emergency clinic & poison control ctr.
*PAPER & PEN to make notes on bird's condition.
*TOWELS for catching & restraining ur bird
*STYPTIC POWDER/STICK (beak & nails only) or CORNSTARCH (can be used on skin)
*SCISSORS, NAIL CLIPPERS & NAIL FILE
*NEEDLE-NOSED PLIERS-to pull broken blood feathers
*PEROXIDE or other disinfectant solution
*EYE IRRIGATION-such as saline or contact wetting solution
*BASIC BANDAGE MATERIAL-such as gauze square & rolls, MASKING TAPE-does NOT stick to feathers
*PEDIALYTE or GATORADE
*SYRINGES to irrigate wounds or feed sick birds
*COTTON SWABS to apply meds & clean wounds
*BETADINE SOAP-which is anti-bacterial, for foot injuries
*HEATING PAD or HEAT LAMP-home use
*HEAT PACK to keep bird warm during transport; wrap pack in towel - DO NOT apply directly to bird, burns could result.
Tomorrow we will discuss what constitutes an emergency & triage/first aid priorities.
THANK U SO MUCH FOR UR SUPPORT!
