green checked conure with growth in nostril

by Trew

someone has just given me a darling, 5 year old, female green checked conure. She has an enlarged left nostril with what looks like a growth in it. The man who had her before said he took her to an avian vet who gave him a saline solution, sort of like eye drops, and the nostril, which was all plugged up, opened up a bit. Is there something I can give her that will help with this problem. She lets me rub her nostrils and beak and seems to like it, as though it is itchy. Thank you,

Hello Trew,

Dr. B. can not help your bird over the Internet. The bird could have an infection, something stuck up it's nose or a growth. You should have another avian vet look at the bird and prescribe the best treatment.
