galah has bare patch under wing
by Margaret Harris
(Concord West, Sydney NSW Australia)
Our Galah has a bare patch under his right wing. It does not seem to be worrying him. He does not seem to be scratching and is not moulting. He is housed in a large cage on the verandah right outside the back door.. He eats parrot crumbles and fruit and celery. His treat is a smallpiece of wholemeal bread with sesame seeds at breakfast time.
2 years ago he had a large fat tumour removed from his lower stomach area and since then has been on a Crumble diet - no sunflower seeds! He has been fime since then and doesn't appear sick now but we are a little concerned. sorry, no pictures as yet.
