BIRDIE DISASTER PREPAREDNESS
Our birds depend on us for
their safety and well being. The following information will help us be prepared
for an emergency.
If you need to evacuate –
TAKE YOUR BIRD WITH YOU! It is a good idea to have a pre-arranged safe place to
bring your feathered friend. Ask friends and relatives that live in different
areas if they would be willing to help out in an emergency. Also contact local
hotels and motels and check on their pet policies.
Have a secure TRAVEL CAGE available at all times. Have enough carriers for all birds (don’t forget your other pets). Transport your bird in a safe CARRIER.
Have a towel or blanket to
cover the bird if it is stressed or cold.
KIT next to the carrier. It should contain the following:
Bird First Aid Kit
Food – Seed or Pellets (don’t
forget to rotate your supplies for freshness)
Dehydrated Fruits and Vegetables
Canned Fruits and Veggies (no or
AVIAN FIRST AID KIT
Towel for wrapping and securing bird
Hemostats and tweezers
Needle nosed pliers (for pulling broken blood feathers)
Styptic powder (Kwik-Stop)
Betadyne or Hydrogen Peroxide
Tape and Vet Wrap
Sterile water or bottled water
Pedialyte (for rehydrating a dehydrated bird)
Wherever there are birds, there
should be a “birdie” First Aid Kit.
When an accident happens it is too
late to look for the necessary supplies.
