Blue and gold Macaw has a big bump on lower belly

by Amy Barker

Okay....recently, I notices that my macaw has a large bump between her legs on her lower belly? She is approx. 30 years old and I have had her since she was a baby. She use to get "air" type bubbles near her neck, but they always go away over time and have never been a problem. This is in a new location and I am not sure what it is? Any ideas?

Editor's note: In the future if you want people to see and answer, you need to post a question, not an answer here to another question, on our Parrot Questions page.

Please use this Find an Avian Vet link to find an avian vet for your bird so it can be examined to determine what is wrong and what the potential treatment might be.

Lump in macaw belly
by: Tracie

It could be an infection, cyst or tumor. The only way to determine what it is would be for you to Find an Avian Vet to examine your bird in person. Dr B can not tell over the internet what it is, sorry.
