Included in the kit is a booklet describing the most common first aid issues and how to handle them and how to determine when a bird needs emergency veterinary care.
There is also a quick-reference list to quickly determine how to use the items in the kit. In addition to the booklet and “quick list” the deluxe kit contains a small hand towel for restraint, towelettes, gauze sponges, latex gloves, DMSO (for pain and swelling), cotton tip applicators, corn starch to help clotting, a penlight, silver nitrate sticks to stop bleeding from nails,soap to stop bleeding nails, 4 instruments (Scissors, hemostats, thumb forceps and needle holders), emery boards, pet flex tape for bandaging, hand rearing formula for emergency feeding, syringes and feeding tips, antibiotic ointment and eye wash solution. It comes conveniently boxed in a plastic box.
