Growth on Leg of Parotlet

by Lyndsay
(Canada)

Our female parrotlet has had a growth on the back part of her leg for as long as we've had her. The growth doesn't seem to bother her - she still puts weight on her leg and walks around just fine. When I got home yesterday, there was blood all over the cage and it had come from the growth. What is the growth and how can we determine if it is malignant / infectious or not? Any information would be appreciated. Thanks!

Bleeding growth on parrotlet

Dr B can not help you with this, because your bird needs to be examined and the growth needs to be tested to see what it is. Please take your bird to see an avian vet soon.
