Hi, my canary has a swollen leg because it is red and everytime she tries to walk on both legs she has trouble with her right leg and favors her left leg..she does nothing other than lay at the bottom of her cage all day. Iv'e tried putting it in warm water and putting salt in the water but nothing seems to work. Her right leg is useless to her right now. Please help!! thanks.

same problem
by: Andie

Well, my dove seems to have the same problem, but the vets I took her to are too incompetent to fix her so I would really love to know if you managed to help your bird and how. Thanks :)

Canary with sore leg

YOU must take the bird to a avian vet asap.
My canary had broke his leg and the vet removed it as best he could and the bird was able to get around for a while.
The bird is suffering .. take it to a vet.

Canary with possible broken leg

I am so sorry, but Dr B can not help your bird over the Internet. You must take your bird to an avian vet to be examined and treated in person. That is the only way to know exactly what is wrong and what the best treatment is to solve the problem.

Let us know what you find out and what the vet does. I hope all turns out well.
