What should I do if my bird is bleeding?

Bleeding parrots

Should your parrot start to bleed for any reason, take action immediately! It doesn't take much blood loss to be dangerous to an avian system. Gently restrain the bird and apply pressure to the area until the bleeding stops. You may need to use a cautery stick or Quik Stop powder to stop the bleeding. If you don't have these items, use flour or cornstarch to help clot the blood.
