Amazon Parrot Head Injury Post-Trauma
by Caroline Mahomar
Hi, my yellow-napped parrot had an accident 5 days ago. She was hit on the back of her head and lost a little bit of her yellow feathers. I took her to the emergency vet and she did not break her bones or have a outer injury. The fist 24 hours post trauma she had both her eyes closed, but fully conscious, eating and talking.
After the swelling went down, she opened one eye and the next day the other eye. Her eyes began to dilate a couple hours later but she has not recover her sight. She does react to light and darkness but she does not see anything. She follows us because her hearing is very sensitive.
We fed her in her mouth the first days, but now she looks for her own food in her plates. She is very active and going back to normal. I want to know if there is a possibility that she will recover her sight??
