Budgie parakeets > Talking birds > Wounds


Occasionally a bird will get hurt, but usually the wounds will readily heal without treatment.

Calendula salve which can be obtained from most drug stores is one of the most healing ointments. If the wound is severe, it may be washed with arnica water which is also good in all cases of bruises.

Should there be severe bleed­ing, lint may be laid on the cut to staunch the blood. In case of large, gaping wounds they may be drawn together with a few stitches.
