Chewing nails off
by Rick James
(Los Angeles, California United States)
I have an 8 year old parrot and he recently got injured do not know how because he was home alone. It was just a cut above his middle finger so we cleaned it and treat it for infections, then later on that night he bit his nail completely off we did not notice till the next day.
Later on the day after the injury he ripped of several other nails from both of his feet. I took him to a vet but it seemed like she did not know what was happening and told me it was do to stress and he will stop soon after. Well my parrot recently ripped off other nails and now only has three left on both his feet, so i wanted to know if that was the problem and if it is what can i do to prevent him from ripping them all off because i also notice he is chewing on the meat were he has no more nail. I NEED PROFESSIONAL HELP!!!
