A Revolutionary Design for Avian Restraint

Designed and developed by Dr. Greg Burkett Board Certified Avian Veterinarian

The AviStraint is a safe and humane method of avian restraint. It is used for temporary restraint to allow safe examination, grooming, and other procedures commonly performed on pet, and other, birds. It can also be used on patients post-anesthesia to prevent injurious wing flapping during recovery. It 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.

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

Special thanks to Gena Everhart of The Cozy Parrot for her vital role in the development of the AviStraint.

For complete descriptions and video demonstrations visit AviStraint.com

The AviStraint comes in seven different sizes to fit all birds. Please see bottom of page for a list of birds appropriate for each size of AviStraint. Please remember these are guidelines only:

Description:

Fabric is sturdy, scrub material; soil release, 65% Poly/35% Cotton blend solid poplin in "clinical" colors. Each size is assigned a different color for easy visual identification. Construction is double layer body, wing pocket flaps and straps for the right weight needed plus durability. Main body is top stitched for shape and strength. Hook and loop fastener is stitched with a zig zag stitch with overstitching to prevent seperation from body and strap. Plenty of hook and loop for flexibility. All threads used in construction are durable polyester.

Uses:

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.

Veterinarians

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.

Groomers

Use them when grooming birds.

Laundering instructions:

Machine wash in warm water and tumble dry. The use of a laundering bag is recomended. Affix hook to loop to prevent fiber and lint accumulation on the straps and attachments. Use a mild detergent to sanitize appropriately. Store flat or roll.

Guides:

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.
