My African Grey has ingested Dettol, can you advise please

Customer Question

I think my African Grey has ingested Dettol, can you advise please?


This happened yesterday evening. He has not eaten anything since. Haven't noticed any signs of weakness yet but not letting anyone touch him, he just wants to be left alone. He's put his head on his back and is sleeping. I fear the Dettol may be on his feathers as well so could get worse very quickly if he preens himself.
