Gout in cockatiel


I have a cockatiel suffering from gout. I Heard nettle extract can help him but don’t know how yo use it.


Answer:

Hi Milly,

You should discuss this with your Vet. There are some herbal supplements that seem to help with some issues, but you should never give anything without first talking to your Vet about how much to give, and to make sure it will not interfere with any medications she is on. We do have a webinar you can watch about different natural supplements – I’m not sure if the Vet discusses what to use for gout but I believe she does. But again, she advises that you talk to your Vet before using any natural supplements.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,

Brenda
