Human Medicine

Over the counter human medications, even those seemingly benign as aspirin, Tylenol or vitamins, can poison your bird. Commonly available bird products such as antibiotics, mite sprays or feather-picking "remedies" must also be avoided. Always check with your avian vet before giving any health product to your bird.

When taking your medicine, such as the cute, red, candy-looking Sudafed or the like, be sure that your bird is not on your shoulder or somewhere where he could fly to you.
