    I expect this topic has been covered previously but I want to buy a nebuliser.  As I'm now safehousing I think it would be the most responsible thing to do.  My problem is I don't know which one would be suitable and also how would it be used.  It might sound a stupid question but do you just turn it on with the bird close by.  I have seen one that is within my price range and have hopefully posted a link.  Any comments or advice would be greatly appreciated rather than buying something that is a waste of money.

    As I understand it and simply put, to nebulise a bird it needs to be in an enclosed space, a travel cage that is covered with a blanket, or similar. You need to mix F10SC with water and put it into the mouthpiece part of the nebuliser and let that release steam into the bird's box or cage. Luckily I've never had to do it, but when I do, I can see I'm going to get into a real flap. So I am sorting out the appropriate size syringes and some RO water from hubby's fishtank kit so that it's all ready to go. Somebody did put the ratios of F10 to water on here in another thread.

    We hope to get a factsheet put on here, as this was an area covered in the training courses Sheila ran last year.

    The nebuliser looks like the one I have that is shared between myself, SharonL who is a neighbour and SWWChris who lives close by. I think it's the same model.

    Someone was looking, there is also a 12v one on Amazon, with a car plug in kit available too.

    Hi I don't have any safe house birds at the moment but I do suffer with asthma and I use a nebuliser I also have an old one in the loft in excellent condition both nebulisers have all different mouth pieces now if I got a bird and had to use a nebuliser of course Not using my medication could the nebuliser be ok to use on a bird or would it be to powerful? I have been reading your letters saying the correct way to use it.

    Many thanks for reading my message

    It would be fine to use your nebuliser Doreen, they are all the same as you are using, that people are buying for birds, but used with F10 and water instead of medication.

    The mouthpiece doesn't matter as you just need to vapour to puff out into the enclosed space that the bird is in.

     

    Do you still want to safehouse? If so, do get in touch with your ACO as we have loads of birds urgently looking for safehouse homes so we can get them collected before we shut down over Christmas.

    Shaz uses saline as in the irripods used for flushing wounds. She says it foams and aspirates better.

    From a biological point of view saline would be better, certainly in humans.
