Saf-T Shield Bird E-Collar

Product Description

Saf-T Shield Bird E-Collar | Bird Cone Collar

 

 The Saf-T Shield Bird E-Collar keeps your birds beak from its feathers or injuries. This bird collar features an adjustable snap closure.

The Saf-T Shield Bird E-collar is made from clear, lightweight clear plastic.  This tough bird e-collar is designed to protect the skin once it has been compromised (In other words, the bird has moved beyond feather picking and plucking and onto skin damage.) This particular bird e-collar is also an appropriate  solution if a bird has undergone surgery.

These bird collars treat the symptoms (the feather picking and mutilation) but do not eliminate the underlying cause(s) so we urge you to determine what may be contributing to self-mutilation and resolve those issues while keeping your bird safe with a bird collar.

When should I use a Saf-T-Shield Bird E-collar?

  • When your bird needs to quickly stop the itch-bite-scratch-infection cycle with a rugged bird e-collar
  • When your bird is self-mutilating and chewing through feathers and into the skin
  • Use when catheters and other testing equipment must be attached to your bird bird
  • Post surgical care and fracture recovery. 

Alternative Bird Collars If this Collar Is Too Much

The Saf-T Shield Collar itself can be stressful to birds and should only be applied when it is necessary to manage self-mutilation and prevent skin tearing or infection, or as a last resort when all else fails.  If your bird is not engaging is skin mutilating behaviors, please consider a less harsh alternative such as our fleece bird collars. Parrots are emotionally sensitive pets and may develop psychological problems when a harsh, plastic bird collar is used. 

We recommend that you contact your Avian Veterinarian for a full examination to determine the potential cause of your bird's feather plucking behavior.

 PLEASE NOTE: We SUGGEST the following sizes, but please be aware that individual bird species may vary considerably in size and you will need to adjust accordingly. Please measure your parrot's neck for complete accuracy. Open packaging is NOT accepted for return.
