Eye scratching.

Mitred Conure

My Mitred conure has recently started scratching at his eye. He is 30 years old, and has never been sick. I noticed the white skin around his eye is starting to turn dark brown. I didn't worry about that, because his other eye has been like that for years. There must also be a little weeping because some of the feathers around his eye are caked a little. Julio loves to bath, and has a good soaking twice a week.

Parrot eye problems can be serious
by: The Vet

Eye problems can be very serious. You need to make an appointment to see an avian veterinarian as soon as possible. You bird should be seeing a veterinarian at least once a year, and at his age, twice a year would not be too much.

Needs a Vet Check
by: Anonymous

I have two over 30 Amazons, and if something I cannot explain happens, off to the vet they go just to make sure there is not an infection brewing.

Have the vet check his eye as he could have an infection in there and would benefit from either oral or topical antibiotics.
