budgie arthritis?

by katie gadsbyhaner

i think my pet budgie has arthritis. it hurts her to bend her foot and her foot is really pale compared to the other one. the grip is worse too! Also, whenever i try to touch it, she pulls it away! Should she see a vet?!? but just to let you know, she eats perfectly.

Budgie needs to see a vet
by: Tracie

Dr. B does suggest you take your bird to an avian vet. Neither he nor anyone else can tell you what is wrong without examining the bird.

An avian vet will not only be able to examine the bird, but will also be able to help the bird with pain management.
