I used Mite & Lice Spray on my bird and since use, the bird has been distressed and irritated. I have followed the directions on the bottle. Why is this happening?

As the treatment begins to take effect on the mites, they often run through the feathers, irritating the birds in the process. If the bird is doing a large amount of scratching and preening, they are trying to contain their itching. Remove excess solution off your bird and contact your veterinarian if your bird appears to display symptoms of being unwell.
