    Corona Ointment
    contains 50% lanolin for maximum moisture control. The antiseptic action of oxyquinoline, which is used in a variety of human skin care products, helps reduce the numbers of a wide range of micoorganisms. Due largely to its high lanolin content, Corona ointment adheres well to the skin for long-lasting protection.

    It contains the same ingredient as Bag Balm, oxyquinoline, which I use on hurt combs, etc. As long as there is no painkiller like benzocaine in it, it may be okay, but always be careful using anything for another species on birds.

    Bag Balm has these ingredients:

    From the tin:


    8-Hydroxy Quinoline Sulfate 0.3% in a petrolatum, lanolin base.
