Cut on head

by Lee

My baby parakeet is 9 days old. Today I noticed he has a little cut on his head! Maybe he scratched himself? Or the mommy bird preened him a little too hard? I'm worried that the cut could become infected. Is there anything I can do?

Parakeet with cut on head

Call your avian vet and see if they will prescribe something for you. Do not use greasy over the counter stuff like neosporin, because the bird will preen and get that greasy chemical stuff all over it's body.

You can use this Find an Avian Vet link to find an avian vet for your bird if you don't already have one you can call.
