Bird needs in person attention by avian vet
by: Tracie

Your bird needs to be seen in person by an avian vet, sorry. DR. B can't tell the extent of the damage nor prescribe treatment over the Internet.

For those reading this, please note that your bird should remain in the cage unless you have a bird safe room.

If you have other pets, they should be locked out of the room. You should not have anything that could fall over on the bird when it lands, such as pictures on the wall or table. You should block off any access to underneath couches and stuffed furniture that has toxic material and places for the bird to get stuck. The list goes on and on.
Lastly, if you wear your shoes outside, then you are potentially bringing in bird diseases and toxic materials in on your shoes. Don't let your bird run around on the floor.
