Using Peroxide on a bird
by: Anonymous

I've used Betadine on birds and it heals their wounds very nicely. I've NEVER used Peroxide on birds so I don't know about it. Please do not use anything that you don't know on your birds or on anyone for that matter. Good luck and God bless!

Editor's note: Please check with your avian vet before using this.

Do not use peroxide on bird
by: The Avian Vet

I do not recommend using peroxide on birds. This will slow healing instead of speeding it. I recommend that you have your bird examined by an avian veterinarian for recommended treatment options.
