Stools Stuck
by: Alex

As Tracie has mentioned, there are a number of possible reasons why the stools have stuck to the vent.

This should be checked out by an avian vet.

Your bird does not need to be sedated at all.

Like Tracie has also said, provide a shallow bath of water and remove after one hour.

SIDE NOTE: NEVER give any medication to your bird that has not been prescribed by an vain vet, plus whenever a bird is sedated or anaesthetised it is done only when absolutely necessary and strictly controlled and under the experience of a qualified avian medical professional.

Whenever a bird is knocked out, there always follows a small risk as with humans and other animals that complications and death can occur.

Bird knock out drugs
by: Tracie

You don't need "knock out" drugs, just provide the bird with bath water. Make sure you only leave a shallow water bowl in the cage for an hour, so that the bird doesn't drink the dirty water and get an infection.

The concern is, why is the vent dirty? Your bird may need an avian vet, because the bird may already be sick, have an infection, be egg bound or any number of things.

Please use this Find an Avian Vet link to find an avian vet for your bird so it can be examined to determine what is wrong and what the potential treatment might be.
