VetRx for Caged Birds

This treatment applies to the following species:
Company: Goodwinol



Recommended for Canaries, Parakeets (Budgies), Love Birds, Parrots, Cockatiels, Finches, Macaws. For internal and external applications.

Transporting of birds, extreme changes in weather or house temperature and crowding of birds can all lead to stress. Stress can cause a deficiency in immune response. This can result in changes in a bird’s appearance or posture. It can also lead to loss of appetite. VetRx can help get your birds back on feed and supports healthy upper respiratory function.

Directions For Use

Make certain cage is clean, warm and dry. Warm VetRx prior to application. To warm, open cap, place bottle in warm water. Mix 1 teaspoonful of warm VetRx into one half cup of warm water (VetRx mixes with warm water, and floats on top of cold water.). With eye dropper drip 2 drops of diluted solution into nostrils. Do this twice daily for 4 days. If this is difficult to perform, rub 2 drops full strength under wings instead. Body heat of the bird will vaporize VetRx, and bird will inhale beneficial vapors. Put 3 drops of diluted solution down the throat of the bird at night. Continue for 4 days. Add 2 drops (full strength from bottle) into clean drinking water daily for 5 days.

VetRx for Caged Birds Caution

Avoid contact with eyes.


Keep birds away from drafts and excessive cold or heat. Sudden drops in temperature can be a source of danger. All varieties of caged birds have sensitive respiratory systems. Never position the cage close to windows, doors, heating ducts, fans or air conditions.

Make certain cage is clean and dry at all times, with clean litter on floor. Change drinking water often and keep at a moderate temperature. Mix 3 drops of warm VetRx in drinking water each time it is changed.

Sprinkle a few drops of warm VetRx in the litter every five days.

Once each week rub two to three drops of warm VetRx under bird’s wing. Body heat will cause the aromatic oils in VetRx to vaporize. That will help keep nasal passages clear.

VetRx does not stain, and will not harm feathers or wings.

VetRx can help keep face and legs clean and free from flaking.


Use VetRx at room temperature directly from the bottle. Using a cotton swab, apply to scaly areas. Rub in well with swab or fingers. Do this every day, once daily, for one week. After the fifth or sixth day, scales should come off by themselves or with gentle hand rubbing. Thereafter, apply to bird’s feet and legs three times monthly. Avoid soaking the feathers (Moderate use of VetRx will not harm feathers.).


Apply VetRx at room temperature, directly from the bottle. Using a cotton swab, apply two times each day to scaly area. Do this for five days. Use sparingly and apply just a thin film. Keep VetRx out of bird’s eyes. When eyelids are involved work carefully and slowly.

In VetRx, the combination of corn oil and strong Essential Oils help penetrate into the skin. You can also rub perches with warm VetRx (full strength from the bottle) two times each month.
