Medicine on food


When trying to administer medication, is it okay to give more “treat-like” food to get the meds in her? My Grey is currently on 4 meds and will really only eat it if it’s on a walnut and/or scrambled eggs.


Answer:

Hi Kerry,

It’s always best to double check with the Vet, because some foods can interfere with some medicines. There shouldn’t be an issue with eggs or walnuts, but be sure to double check. The main concern is whether the bird is getting all of the medicine.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,

Brenda
