Conure Swolen foot

by Carla

Hi there, i own a jandaya conure and have recently noticed her right foot is swolen, i think its due to her ring as her foot clings well and doesnt complain while moving her leg, the ring however is very tight around her leg now and we can even barely move it. any ideas on what can be done? and do you think she will have more problems due to this? Thank you

Conure with swollen foot

It is likely that something is wrong, and because the foot is swollen the band is tight. I don't know, because I can't examine the bird.

Please Find an Avian Vet to examine your bird to rule out infection or illness and if the band needs to be removed the vet can do this.
