blue and gold macaw

by pupulu

my macaw has a swollen pink eyelid on top of his left eye. it doesn't look serious. it's not oozing or bleeding, and he can open his eye all the way. i have two macaws so i don't know if they were fighting. if i could get an answer as soon as possible i'd appreciate it.

Macaw with swollen eye
by: The Vet

I cannot tell you what caused this without examining your bird, so you should take it in to see an avian veterinarian. And yes, it probably is serious. IF allowed to go untreated, the swelling could cause corneal damage and your bird could lose sight in that eye. It may not be as serious as that, but no one can tell you without looking at it.
