In this list, sometimes the whole plant is toxic to parrots, or only certain parts are and can cause severe to severe poisoning if ingested. The list also includes plants that can cause contact dermatitis, or contain calcium salts (oxylates) that irritate mucous membranes.

Minimize risks

Familiarize yourself with dangerous plants in your garden and ban poisonous plants inside the house or aviary. If you are really a gardening freak, keep plants, seeds, bulbs, onions, and chemicals (insecticides, pesticides, fungicides) away from your parrot’s beak.

  • Never give berries or wild berries or berries from your garden to your parrot without being sure of their non-toxicity.
    Never give seed seeds to your bird.
  • Never forget that heating or cooking a plant does not always destroy the toxic substance.
  • Never rely on wild birds in your area to tell you which plants or berries are not poisonous.
  • Never prepare household medicines for your parrot with native or cultivated plants.

Some symptoms of plant

poisoning Ingestion of poisonous plants can come in several forms in parrots, ranging from diarrhea, vomiting, constipation, or other gastrointestinal problems, to disturbances in the nervous system, immune system, or blood. These poisonings can create great damage to the kidneys and liver and changes in blood biochemistry. Some toxins can cause a wide variety of dermatitis or skin reactions resulting in pain, redness, eye or nasal irritation, and even allergies that can degenerate into respiratory problems or severe irritation of the mucous membranes of the mouth or throat and lead to death.

If you believe your parrot has ingested a poisonous

Poisonous trees for parrots and plant

•Identify the plant.
•Call your veterinarian to find out what to do right away and follow their advice to the letter.
•Keep your bird warm, away from any extra stress.

•If your bird has vomited, take a sample of the vomit to your veterinarian.

  1. FRUIT TREES: these species of fruit trees contain cyanogenic glycosides which are extremely toxic to parrots.
  2. WEEPING FIG TREE: Despite the fact that this decorative plant is considered safe for humans, the sap of some species may contain irritants, whether in the bark, leaves, or skin of the fruit.
  3. OAK: better to avoid it, even if well-dried oak is often used to make parrot toys without causing any problem (very high creosote rate). If you still decide to use it, never offer it fresh, but always very well dried. Acorns from oak trees, on the other hand, are extremely poisonous.
