I know that it is a good product, but I never had to use it. Usually, those products are not really needed unless you have a problem with the bird.

The stores around here are limited with their bird products. Never heard of the product----

Offer cold bath water once a week to get your bird to bathe. I use a green dish (familiar to him for his fresh food) and tell him to "take a bath"-----he certainly gets the idea and will test the water first. Usually he bathes when offered, especially at this time of year with so much dander on him. I have a small towel nearby so he can dry his feet when stepping out. Birds know what they need.

Best to you.

Thanks for your reply. I was asking because Kai is molting and it says it helps with minor skin irritations. Also helps alleviate excessive molting. Thought I’d see if anyone was familiar with it.

Thank you for your reply. I bought Kai a bath dish but so far he enjoys hopping into his water dish. I put him in the bathroom sink and spritz him three times a week. I was asking about the spray because Kai is molting and the spray is suppose to relieve skin irritations and help alleviate excessive molting. I thought I would see if anyone was familiar with it or if anyone has used something similar.

Mary,

Many years ago I tried ecotrin spray from Dr. Fosters and Smith and it had a perfume strong smell and gave me a headache. Many bird products, sprays and bird vitamins are not regulated for safety and contain chemical neurotoxins and unregulated ingredients are not a good idea to use on the babies. I only use distilled water to mist and bathe the birdies. Also a certain bird vitamin made in Canada made my birdies vomit. When I questioned the vendor; they were clueless and are not required to guaranty results for bird or animal products. I don't use chemical supplements made for birds because they are poor quality and have no regulations in the ingredients (It also made my friends African ray sick) Bird products have no guarantees for quality or safety. I recommend using distilled water for bird baths unless you have really good tap water and never give them products made for birds to ingest or spray on their bodies.

Thank you very much for your reply. I have good tap water. Also have a filter on the kitchen faucet and a filtered pitcher for drinking and spritzing Kai. So far I’ve been spritzing Kai in the bathroom sink which he doesn’t seem to mind. He has a blue bath dish but so far ignores it. If he wants to bath he does so in his drinking water.
