ive heard mixed things on neosporin. because its so close to the nostrils, i will say no because neosporin is oil based and best not risk her breathing it in or eating it.


do you have an aloe plant? or a store that sells pure aloe vera gel? must be PURE aloe, nothing added to it. this is a safe alternative and will keep the cut clean and disinfect it. it will also soothe any pain and irritation. and if she eats it, it is safe, so you dont have to worry like you would with neosporin. make sure to clean the cut with warm water and a q-tip too.

When I first got my GCC I had him in a small 20x16 budgie cage for about 4-5 days while I waited for his HQ flight cage to be delivered... he spent a lot of time shoving his face against the bars trying to get out to come over to my hubby and I... doing this he really tore up and scraped his cere... I just left it alone and kept an eye on it... it healed fine in just a few days.

Or cayenne pepper.
Might make her sneeze though.
You could make a paste out of it.

cayenne may make it burn on an open wound. best would be aloe to soothe it. has vitamin E in it and has antiseptic properties. it would be less painful than cayenne. ive used cayenne on open wounds, burns like a *****. i find cayenne is best on bruises and sore joints.

Thanks everyone... I knew aloe was good for healing but wasnt sure about disinfecting.... I figured it wuld heal fine on its own but her beak is starting to get a dark pink near the wound and cere a bit puffy, better treat it just in case, I just lost a budgie from upp resp. couldnt handle another flock member dying from infection

keep it clean and make sure no feathers or food get in it. also, i would wash it once a day, dry it very well gently with a q-tip and apply aloe. keep it dry other wise. wet wounds often breed bacteria
