Hello! My name is***** will be the expert to assist you today with your vet-related questions.
There are 3 effective ways to stop the bleeding, but you might need to travel to the vets for those.
1. pressure (min 2 people job - someone restrains the parrot with adequate gloves/towels, someone applies some sterile gauze to the nail).
2. Adrenaline (the same one that we use for cardio-pulmonary resuscitation) - apply 2 drops on the nail; this will cause vasoconstriction.
3. Nitrate cauterisation (there are some special pens that react with the red blood cells and produce an exothermic reaction).
Usually, option 2 and 3 it's a "clinic job". Some owners do have Nitrate Pencils at home and they feel comfortable using them.
(for future need)
Any peripheric/superficial bleeding should stop in 15-20 min due to coagulation without any intervention if the Blood Pressure is not rocket high.
