Using vet wrap on perches?

I'm sure I've read a couple of times that you can use the cohesive vet wrap to stick to perches as opposed to using rope. Is it completely safe to use? I mean, they use it on all of the animals at the avian vets I work at so surely it's perfectly safe? I'd like to wrap up some cruddy dowel perches (I HATE dowel!) for my Alexandrine parakeets as the Asiatic birds tend to completely wreck rope perches within a matter of minutes and I end up having to keep throwing them away. That's not the problem though of course, the main issue is them getting caught up in the mess that they make I'd do it for all of my birds of course, but my main concern is the Alexs being stuck with just a few perches and not enough variety. They currently have a Java branch, a concrete perch and 2 dowels at the moment because they completely ruined the rope perch, the orbit and the boing. Makes their cage look completely empty without it all I've just got my grandad to drop off a bunch of natural perches from the woods for me, just sorting them out now. So they won't be too bad! But I just like my birds having different textures...

Any help is appreciated

Yes you can use vet wrap for perches. I've used it many times in the past.

We used it all the time at the pet shop and I've used it at home as well. Love the stuff! Used it to make a splint when I thought I broke my finger, to make a pressure bandage when I cut myself and didn't get stitches...

It does sound like useful stuff. I'll see if I can get it cheap from the vets
