Pet Owners
We do not recommend that owners restrain their own bird. Pet birds can become distrustful of owners when handled this way; some birds forgive, others do not. All good parrot-owner relationships are totally dependent on trust.

The AviStraint can be used by pet owners in the event of an emergency where restraint is necessary. Perfect to keep in your First Aid Kit.

Use it when your bird is being groomed.

When your bird is examined by a veterinarian, request that she or he use the AviStraint to restrain your bird. Get one for your own bird and take it with you when you visit the veterinarian’s office. Ask your veterinarian if s/he carries and uses the AviStraint.

Use the AviStraint for grooming, performing physical exams, and to restrain for phlebotomy. Also use it post-anesthesia to prevent the wing flapping that sometimes occurs durng recovery.

Keep each exam room stocked with plenty of clean AviStraints. However, some clients may want to bring in their own birds' AviStraints. Offer them for sale to your clients, and recommend one for each of their birds to bring along when they visit your office.

Use them when grooming birds.

Bird Specialty Shops and Pet Stores
Use the AviStraint when your customers bring in birds for grooming.


Do not over tighten the strap. Allow ample room for the chest movement to allow normal breathing. Make sure the wings are snug next to the body.

The AviStriant is not intended for long-term adornment or restraint and it should not be used for tethering or flight prevention. It is also not intended for protection against or to deter from feather damaging behaviors and other self-mutilation.
