lump on nose
I have a cockatiel and he is 24 years old - first of all How long do they live? I was told 8 - 15 yrs when I got him at 16 wks old.
This past week he has developed at knot on his nose. It doesnt seem to be bothering him and not causing any breathing issues yet but it get a bit bigger each day - I will take him to vet if I need too but the stress might be pretty tough on him.
He used to be a lot easier going but with his age he tends to have seizures or anixiety attacks - these happen in the middle of the night sometimes and I can calm him by talking to him I actually though maybe he hit his nose on something during one of these episodes. its not open or seeping or anything.
Please advise me. Cricket
