African Gray Small blood spots/blotches on both feet

My African Gray has small blood spots around both his feet especially the back of his feet and some blood I between the scales of his feet. But he is acting fine, he is showing no sign of irritation. It showed up three days ago and I didn't think anything of it because it was a very small area but then yesterday it spread.

I've cleaned his entire cage down several tims and I'm continuously washin his feet. Its beonager days since I first noticed it however it hasn't spread further but it is not going away. I cannot afford to take him to the vetraniarian right now but I am very worried, what types of natural herbs/medicines would you prescribe?

Grey with bleeding feet

If you cannot afford an avian vet, you should not have a bird. I hate to say it, but it's true.

Hopefully no one comes to your house, sees the bird with it's bleeding legs and reports you for neglect.

Not taking a sick animal to a vet when they obviously need to see one is animal cruelty and is punishable by law.

So please, re-work your monthly budget, and find the money to get him to a vet, not taking him could lead to the loss of both legs.

My aivan vet isnt really that exp. So you should call around if you've got more then one avian vet in your area and get prices. Blood work might need to be done or a skin biopsy. Most vets do take payment as long as you can at least have a portion at the time of treatment. Ask them about payment plans.

Bc right now, you run the risk of huge fines
(which wil cost more then a vet)or even jail time, and your bird being taken away due to neglect. It's cheaper in the long run to get him to a vet.

Bird with mysterious blood spots
by: Tracie

You need to think through what you are asking here. Your bird is bleeding, you don't know why, you don't want to spend money on an avian vet and you want a prescription from me.

I can't possibly figure out why your bird is bleeding, and if you don't figure it out your bird will continue to bleed.

Most avian vets take payments, so please Find an Avian Vet to examine your bird, treat the wounds and hopefully determine why your bird is bleeding.
