conure with growth on tongue

by Lacey

i work in a pet store and we have a jenday conure. today i noticed he was not acting himself(i.e. biting very hard, and being super noisy while handling), he kept trying to 'feed' me by kissing me and doing the head jerking thing. i thought he was actually trying to spit food into my mouth so i looked inside his mouth and noticed a growth on the base of his tongue. it is pushing his tongue to the side and seems to be causing him pain.

Please ask the pet store owner to Find an Avian Vet to examine this bird. Hopefully they have an avian vet that regularly check their birds anyway.
