Janday Conure's toe turning black
by Cyan Rosswell
My 9 month old Janday Conure got her toe tangled in some string, and it was a while before anyone noticed. Her toenail was somehow chipped off, and now the toe is going black up to around the second joint. We managed to get the string off, and while she is staying off it as much as she can, she's continued to eat and bathe as usual.
I'm fairly certain she'll lose the toe (she's already started nibbling at it), but I'm worried it'll get infected before (or after) she does. Is there anything I should do or some kind of antibiotics I can give her to make the whole ordeal safer or more comfortable for her?
