Fishing Line Dissapearing into Mouth

Fishing Line Disappearing into Mouth


  • Do not cut the line. It may be attached to a fishhook and could be of use to the veterinarian in locating and removing the hook.
  • Prevent the bird from swallowing the line by tying it around the beak until the bird can be examined.


  • Hold the bird and tilt the head backward. The mouth will usually open.
  • If the fishing line disappears into the back of the throat, gently pull the line.
  • If it will not budge, do not persist in pulling.
  • Seek veterinary assistance.
