conure constant eating and salivating
by joan dronfield
My 20 year old mitred conure has for the last few months been constantly eating. now recently I have noticed when he is resting, he salivates. I notice also that his beak always seems to be open slightly. does his lower beak have to be trimmed, and is this causung his problem.
I do not want to stress him at his age, by taking him to the vet. he hates anyone to handle him except my husband. He has his freedom around the house and is only caged at night or when we go out. We are at home all day, so he has plenty of attention. I would be very grateful for any advice. thankyou
