Bird first aid

Hi all,

Does anyone know where to buy a first aid kit for birds in Switzerland?
For example like the one at this link: https://www.scarlettsparrotessential...-first-aid-kit (does not ship to CH).

I have been able to find first aid kits for cats and dogs but not birds. Of course one can buy the various products separately, but even so it is not always so easy to find everything.

Thank you

The kit looks just like any other first aid kit, except for the picture of the parrot.

Re: Bird first aid

Looking at the contents, I donít see where any of the items are specific to birds. Itís a very basic first aid kit. Styptic powder you should be able to get at any pet store.

Also, consider substituting Nitrile gloves for latex.

Re: Bird first aid

Hi, thanks for the messages.
I agree, the items are very similar to any of the cats-dogs first aid kits (like the Swisspet one that I have found readily available) and some are exactly the same. There are a few exception, like the locking forceps to remove damaged blood feathers, and perhaps the size of some items, which would be much too big for budgies or cockatiels. There are also a few items in the cats-dogs first aid kit that would not be suitable for birds, so I thought it might be good to find a first aid kit specifically for birds. However I am having trouble finding one in Switzerland.

Scarlett in the UK do sell what I need but don't send to Switzerland. I might just ask a friend there to buy it and send it on. I already have some of the basic items that I bought individually, so at least it is not urgent
