Hello. My name is***** see that you have a question about your bird. Do you have a moment to speak now?
Expert:  Melanie Goble replied 10 months ago.
It does not appear you are available at the moment, so I will let you know that generally, the iodine in first aid kits is only for topical use and should not be ingested. You can get a proper supplement from your primary care veterinarian though. If you have any additional questions, please let me know.
