    Budgie sore foot

    Stanley budgie has a sore foot, due to him putting most of his weight on it (the other is lame and under treatment from the vet).
    Is it safe to use Iodine-based cream on it? I'm not sure if it can cause problems if ingested.
    Best wishes!

    Re: Budgie sore foot

    Hi, and welcome to the community. I did a quick search online and found that soaking the foot in warm water, or, use a wet warm water paper towel and wrap it around the foot to warm it, and also to soften the skin. I would check with my vet, before using any over the counter creams like iodine cream. Another idea would be after the warm water soak, lightly cover the foot with pure organic olive oil. Olive oil is medicinal. Use a scant amount because you do not want him to get lots of olive oil on his feathers. Repeat these two ideas a couple of times a day. In my view, both are safe to use. Softening up the foot will be of comfort to him. We will welcome updates.

    USe some self sticking bandages on wooden perches, maybe also aloe vera gel on the foot. In the case of inflammation ask some vet for the antibiotics. Some avian vet. I hope your bird gets better soon. do not use sand perches or other hard perches.
