This list below contains dangers found within the home, but please keep in mind that this is not a complete list and should not be taken as such. If you bird gets into something questionable, call your vet right away. It’s always better to be safe than sorry. Also, remember that some chemicals can be absorbed by your bird’s feet - so be sure to wash your hands before handling them if you have been working with something that may be of danger to your parrot.
Miners did not send canaries into mines without reason…birds are far more susceptible to fumes and toxins than humans. The safest method of cleaning is vinegar or some of the all natural eco friendly cleaners that are available today. If using a cleaner, please be sure the surface is completely dry before giving your bird or parrot access to that area.
Again, please remember that this is just a partial list. Having a bird has been compared to, and rightly so, having a toddle running around. They are inquisitive active creatures. If you baby proof your home, be sure to bird and parrot proof it too!
When in doubt about something your bird may have come into contact with – call your avian vet immediately.
